BuzzfeedNew York, NY
Full Time Job
BuzzFeed Entertainment Group is looking for a creative and ambitious lifestyle video producer who can create compelling, shareable, service-oriented content for the web and other digital platforms. Must be a native of the digital and pop cultural landscapes with intimate knowledge of the latest and greatest in social media and emerging technology/platforms.
The ideal candidate loves to experiment with short, fun formats that succinctly tell a story - whether it's a beauty tutorial or a food trend piece. This person should have good social intuition, who loves making content without having to be behind or in front of a camera, and knows how to trust data to crack success.
• Conceive, shoot, write, edit and produce lifestyle videos for BuzzFeed's Facebook and Instagram channels, as well as emerging platforms.
• Ability to produce videos quickly, experiment with lots of different formats, and be interested in analyzing the results of their work.
• Work closely with the BuzzFeed Lifestyle edit team to pitch and produce video components for the content they're working on.
• Collaborate with video producers to execute ideas on time and under budget.
• Proven experience and/or interest in covering a variety of topics including beauty, hair, style, food, DIY, travel, and health.
• Proven experience with all aspects of video creation (DSLR's, Premiere Pro, lighting, audio recording etc.)
• A passion for sharing lifestyle content that's entertaining and inclusive, but never prescriptive
• The ability to think analytically about social sharing to create videos that are made to be shared.
• 3-5 years experience creating compelling, shareable video content.
• A competitive drive - you enjoy winning and really going for it.
• Ability to work in small teams as well as go off on your own.
• A positive, curious, playful disposition (no haters).
