Volunteering & Employment


NW Doc is seeking editors, shooters and audio professionals for upcoming production projects this fall. We will be dispatching crews across Oregon for short visually rich human-interest vignettes in September and October. Shooters must be confident visual storytellers and field producers who can thrive on location, directing minimal crew and honing in stories on short timelines. Must be able to create high-quality professional impact video with cameras such as the Canon 5D and C100.  Shoots will range from 2-4 days, so must be able to work quickly and effectively, adapting to outdoor conditions.

NW Doc is also seeking competent audio professionals for work on location and talented editors for the post-production phase. Editing work may be available on an ongoing basis throughout fall and spring.

Please send samples and resume to production@nwdocumentary.org. Must have flexible schedule in September and October. Compensation DOE.


As a small organization, we always welcome volunteers to help us run our day-to-day operations. Our current volunteer needs include:

Video compression and authoring DVDs
Social Media and WordPress Updates
Graphic Design
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. Most volunteer opportunities are available during our office hours of 12-6pm, Monday-Friday though some projects offer more flexibility.


Spend a semester working with a creative team in our internship program. We have lots of opportunities for people looking to boost their professional experience on a part-time basis. Positions are ongoing with flexible hours, and possible college credit. We value the mentorship and individual collaborations that come from working in small teams, and receive more applications than we can accommodate. To apply for a NW Documentary internship, please first read our site thoroughly, consider where you might lend a hand, and then send a detailed cover letter and resume to our Internship Coordinator.
