Jobs Requiring No Prior Experience

Live Events Videographer

As a live events videographer, you'll get exclusive access to concerts, performances, lectures, and conferences. Not only do you get paid to do what you love, but you get a great seat to observe and record the event. Prior experience with camerawork is preferred, but not necessary. We do expect a good eye for detail and aesthetics, and the willingness and ability to learn quickly.

EDITOR

Post-production is where the magic happens. As an editor on our team, you'll be tasked with taking raw footage shot by us or provided by our clients and turning them into the videos that audience members will actually see. Prior experience is preferred, but not necessary. We do expect you to be tech-savvy and have the willingness and ability to learn quickly.

 

 

Requirements:

  • Current Harvard University student (all schools welcome)
  • Good eye for detail and aesthetics: you should know when a shot is straight and when it's out of focus
  • Dependable and trustworthy: We'll expect you to take good care of our equipment and to troubleshoot common problems during shoots
  • Clear and excellent communicator: You'll be interacting first hand with our clients and so we expect that you represent us (and yourself!) professionally
  • Prior experience in photography or videography (optional)

Requirements:

  • Current Harvard University student (all schools welcome)
  • Tech-savvy: You should know (or quickly learn) what terms like compression, aspect ratio, and file format mean
  • Good eye for quality and design: You should know that Comic Sans and Times New Roman are not appropriate fonts for a video
  • Works quickly and with minimal supervision: We'll provide you with the footage and with general information, but we shouldn't have to hold your hand as you cut the clips
  • Clear and excellent communicator: If something goes wrong, we'd rather you tell us instead of hiding in shame
  • Knowledgable in either Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere (optional) 

Interested? Send a resume to video@hsa.net. You may also attach links to any prior work you have done. Training opportunities are available for either position, if you do not have prior experience.

Either way, if you're good at working with clients to add that creative flair to their vision and even better at directing, producing, and editing creative projects, then you're someone we want on our team.
