We are busy and growing, so we are always in need of more collaborators. We are interested in meeting potential contract camera operators/DPs, editors, producers, and any combination of the above. These are typically hired on a per project basis.
We are looking for collaborators who are passionate about storytelling, kind and respectful, detail-oriented, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. Ideally, you'll have experience producing similar work to what we do here, but that's not required.
This application is mainly aimed at filmmakers, but we also need help with social media managing, website updating, proposal writing and many other communication/administrative tasks around the office, so please do fill this in if you think you can contribute in any way. You can ignore the questions that don't apply to you.
We come to work to do something we love, and in doing that, we get to create positive stories with lasting impact. Our mission is to make the world a better place through cinematic storytelling. Please fill out this form if you'd like to be a part of our team!
