Video Editor and Producer for National Network of Equitable Library Service (NNELS)

Description

NNELS (National Network for Equitable Library Service) under the direction of the BC Libraries Co-op is looking to engage a Video Editor & Producer to create and edit an educational video series on accessible ebook production.

The goal of the project is to develop and publicly distribute a series of videos on ebook production relevant to communities along that chain. The video series will consist of a minimum of six videos (not more than 10 minutes each), which address important ebook accessibility issues. NNELS will provide all content (written and/or video).

We are looking for a Video Editor & Producer to:

  • Create and edit fun and engaging video content to educate people on how to produce accessible ebooks.
  • Gather and create footage, sound effects, music, and graphics.
  • Plan, organize, and direct the artistic aspects of production.
  • Plan and coordinate the production of video recordings.
  • Provide guidance and expertise on script-writing and delivery including editing scripts and advising on the interpretation and delivery of the content.
  • Consult and work regularly with our accessibility team to gain a full understanding of the content and audience needs.
  • Provide regular written updates to the NNELS Content Coordinator and Coordinator for Accessibility Testing.
  • Deliver multiple versions of each video, optimized for various platforms (eg: Facebook, YouTube, Website, etc.).

Qualifications

Proposals will be reviewed on the basis of their general quality, relevant experience of the proponent, and stated and verified ability to complete the work within the project timeline and budget.

The successful proponent will demonstrate and/or provide evidence of the following competencies:

  • Professional video production and post-production experience.
  • Ability to articulate ideas and to take a creative project from initial to final stages.
  • A creative mind with storytelling skills.
  • Strong communications skills in English (written and oral).
  • Ability to work collaboratively and positively with individuals and groups in a distributed environment (team members do not all work in one location).
  • Able to work well with minimal supervision.

The project must be completed by March 27, 2020.
