JOB DESCRIPTION

Videographer for Farmer Film Series

Certified Naturally Grown  seeks to create a series of short educational videos featuring farmers. The videographer will work with a CNG representative to gather footage of the farmer addressing a particular topic, according to a script, at their farm location. Each location will be the film site for one to three videos, of approximately 5-10 minutes each when edited. The videographer will be expected to capture the farmer’s instruction, the surrounding context, as well as close ups and B-roll. 

For each of the video topics, the proposed script and ideal shot list will be shared with the videographer ahead of time by the project team. The footage will be delivered to the editing team following the shoot. 

Please note that due to the demanding and unpredictable nature of farming, there is a small but real likelihood that the filming date/s may need to be rescheduled on short notice. For this reason we will expect the videographer to be prepared for as little as 24 hour notice of rescheduled filming dates. Ideally the videographer would live within two hours drive of the filming location. 

Required Qualifications

  • Have one’s own professional camera and sound equipment
  • Have a portfolio of videography work, ideally field interviews
  • Ability to travel easily by car to farm location
  • Ability to deliver the organized, unedited media with audio synced and color corrected 
  • Ability to troubleshoot unanticipated situations as they arise in the field (noise from neighboring farm, uncooperative weather conditions, etc)
  • Ability to collaborate remotely with project team on shot list and script prior to shoot date/s

 Desirable Skills and Qualities

  • Knowledge of sustainable farming and experience working on a farm
  • Experience developing educational videos
