The video editor would work directly with the Client Producer, side-by-side, to edit, encode and post video segments quickly, usually the same day they were shot. These edits would be relatively easy for most skilled editors, with the direction on messaging coming from the Client Producer. This is a high-pressure situation where you would need to advocate for the production of quality video, but work with the Client to accomplish their goals under their timeline. It's important for the editor to listen carefully to the Client Producer and the content and offer suggestions to make messages clearer, quicker and more engaging.
This position would be required to have extreme flexibility, with the ability to be "on-call" to work at a moment's notice at a large corporate office in the Somers, NY area. An Apple iMac with Adobe CC and other programs would be provide:
