Name: Emmy Wu
Crew Needed: 
Editor, Motion graphics artist
Compensation: $300 per brand video package to start
Time Commitment: Up to 24 hours per project

Seeking a creative and self-motivated video editor with motion graphics skills to join the team! We provided branded videos for online entrepreneurs that help them to reach more people and get their message into the world. Our clients are mostly female, health, wellness and spirituality-industry entrepreneurs, so you must be able to edit in a “feminine” style to convey their message.
Responsibilities include:
– Reviewing the editor workflow training which will be provided for you so you understand our process.
– Joining the client’s Basecamp project to review their brand assets (logo, fonts, brand patterns, etc) and any editing notes
– Delivering one animated introduction (of client’s logo) with one round of revisions
– Delivering one 3-5 minute brand video, and one 60 second Facebook ad video (condensed edit of their brand video), with two rounds of revisions each.
– Uploading client’s deliverables into the Citrix ShareFile folder, then tagging the client on Basecamp for review. Videos often contain client’s own speaking footage or audio, stock footage (will be provided for you), soundtrack (will be provided for you), text elements in the client’s fonts, and some motion graphics elements using the client’s brand patterns. Turnaround is within 14 days of receiving all of the client’s footage and assets. You must be aware of project timelines set on Basecamp and be able to deliver finals before the set due date (typically within 3-4 weeks). Rate for this Brand Video package is $300 for the first couple projects until we establish our workflow and you understand our style. Rates will increase the longer you’re with the team, and how much of your own creativity you can bring into the project while taking direction from the client or myself.

Here are some examples of the work we create, so it’s important that you have the technical skills to be able to produce this level of work.
