Employment type: Freelance (possible temp to perm) position
Grey Sky Films is looking for a talented and passionate freelance editor to join the team. Day-to-day editing duties include cutting together short web videos, overviews, testimonials, interviews, corporate and commercial videos, micro-content, ads for social media, product videos, and promotional videos. Our editors also function as pre-production and post-production producers with duties such as talent acquisition for on-screen and voice-overs, graphic design and script writing. To be considered for this position, applicants must have extreme attention to detail and at least 5 years experience with the Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Premiere and After Effects. Experience with Illustrator and Photoshop is a plus. On-Set producing experience is also a plus.
As an editor at Grey Sky Films, you’ll work as part of a team and must be able to gracefully handle and discuss feedback and edit notes from producers, clients, as well as the team. Our editors work directly with the clients, so you must be experienced in providing outstanding customer service and be professional and friendly in all interactions with clients, in person and via phone or email. You will be required to juggle several projects at the same time, so multi-tasking, and the ability to prioritize and change gears quickly to meet deadlines, are a must. We work in a fast-paced environment and it is important to maintain a high level of quality across all projects, even when managing multiple projects at the same time.
Our editors are not just technicians, they are creative producers. We value their input and talent in every project. Grey Sky Films is growing and you would be an integral part of the success and future growth of this company.
