Industry : Internet/Online/New Media
Job Requirements : The Washington Post is looking for a video journalist to produce, shoot, write and edit political videos.
Responsibilities for this position include conceiving ideas for and shooting video packages. This person should have a keen sense of politics and its key players, but have the ability to break down concepts and explain complicated issues. The producer will be able to come up with creative story pitches that make politics easily digested. The candidate will have an innate ability to make seemingly non-visual stories into videos with data visualization skill sets and creative ideas for graphics, shooting and editing. Candidates must be familiar with Final Cut Pro X and knowledge of AfterEffects (or other graphics/animation data software) and be able to conduct interviews, write scripts and blog posts to go with their videos. The ability to see a project through from start to finish is essential from story boarding and visualizing to producing and final touches. Other daily duties include participating in weekly story idea sessions, traveling to produce video pairings for the 2016 campaign and editing for day-of video. Ideal candidates have a bachelor’s degree in journalism, three years newsroom experience and a track record of outstanding work under pressure. Applicants must also have sound news judgment, demonstrated experience in new media, creating innovative videos and a hunger to create something new.
