LiveSyphon provides industry quality live video production services for independent artists at very affordable rates. We've filmed over 600 bands and we're looking to add an enthusiastic and hard working individual to our team in Austin.
Position: LiveSyphon Recording Agent -- Austin Area
As our Austin Recording Agent, you will be responsible for operating our proprietary equipment to record live performances (video and audio) at a variety of venues and studios around town. You will engage with our customers and partially manage other videographers during shoots. You are responsible for maintaining our equipment and uploading all of the footage recorded to our servers.
You will need basic videography experience and intermediate computer knowledge for this position but you won't need any post production or editing software as LiveSyphon handles everything on the back end.
- Full night and weekend availability***
- Reliable transportation and driver's license
- High speed internet connection (minimum upstream of 2Mbps)
- Videography knowledge
- Computer/networking knowledge
- Some music knowledge
***This is incredibly important, if you can't work nights, weekends, or holidays, then this isn't the gig for you!
The ideal candidate would:
- Have an extremely flexible schedule
- Be good with computers
- Play an instrument
- Have some videography experience
- Have a general knowledge of the music scene in Austin
- Be considered freakishly nice by most (seriously, it's part of our brand!)
- Be excited by the opportunity to be exposed to new music and help out up-and-coming bands
What we do is a labor of love so we want everyone on our team to be as enthusiastic as we are about providing affordable but high quality recording services to bands that wouldn't be able to afford them normally.
