LaunchSquad is a multidisciplinary communications firm committed to producing the best possible results for companies we love. We build creative PR, social media and original content programs for some of the most innovative start-up and mid-stage technology, consumer lifestyle and media companies around. LaunchSquad is growing and we're looking for a talented visual storyteller to join the team as a Filmmaker (development / pre-production / production / post-production).

Filmmakers are part of LaunchSquad's creative team and they contribute to all aspects of our creative productions from conceiving, plotting and crafting dialogue to shooting, editing and polishing video footage. They are comfortable taking projects from concept to completion in addition to playing a supporting role on larger productions with the entire team. At heart, our ideal Filmmaker identifies as a storyteller first, and a technician second.

LaunchSquad's creative team is responsible for creating multi-format content for business-to-business and business-to-consumer audiences. Filmmakers work on live-action, mixed media and animation videos and play a variety of roles depending on the scope of work and talents needed per project. Our work will vary from 30-second web spots and new product promotions to company stories and customer-use case studies. Filmmakers are often responsible for translating our client's technical products and services into compelling, insightful and inspirational stories that resonate with key audiences.

We're looking for a filmmaker with flexibility and creative range. We tackle diverse projects with quick turnarounds. We need ideas, initiative and solutions-oriented thinking every day. We're looking for someone who is actively engaged, willing to take risks, confortable with roadblocks and able to put the collective needs ahead of individual goals. Our creative team is a small, multidisciplinary collective of writers, directors, designers, animators, producers and editors. This is a great opportunity to collaborate on all aspects of the creative processes and learn and grow with a motivated, talented team of creatives. If you think you're a good fit for this opportunity, let's talk.
