Hi, I'm looking for someone to conduct video shoots with an interview style (DATE TBD) . I need a cameraman who not only has shot interviews in the past, but also has skill at coaching interviewees that have never done video-recorded interviews - THE LATTER IS VERY IMPORTANT. You will NOT be considered unless you can demonstrate that you have experience in this space.
Just to set additional context. You will be taping independent business owners/financial advisors in a "direct to camera" style. These individuals, in most cases, will have pre-created scripts that they will follow. (1) You need to either have an ipad/tablet on which we can download a teleprompter app or (2) you should have your own teleprompter. Additionally, you will need to "coach" the interviewees to help them sound less "scripted" and more natural as they are using the teleprompter while looking into the camera.
You MUST have videos that look similar to this:
The shoot typically lasts about 2 hours, but you should budget 4hrs (half day rate) for this shoot. This person will have 2-4 ~3 minute videos that you will need to record. Generally speaking, most videographers in other markets have completed each shoot in 1.5-2 hours. In some cases we will have 2 separate shoot locations (full-day rate)
If you are a good fit for us this could be extended into up to 3+ video shoots over the next 3-5 months.
TO be considered, you MUST provide ALL of the following:
1. Links to sample DIRECT TO CAMERA work
2. Specific examples how how you have coached people
3. You full day rate as well as your half day rate with post production
note: the post production work is super straightforward; you just need to edit the video for sound/length and add our watermark.
4. Your email address
I will only consider experienced professionals, and you must meet the expectations I outlined above.
