As a freelance video creator for The Juice, you will produce, film, edit, and publish informative, and fun content. We are looking for experienced videographers who have the necessary equipment. To date we have primarily filmed life hacks that are powered by STEM (science, technology, engineering and / or math).
We are open to airing other types of videos as well. They must be engaging, inspiring, and educating. Let your imagination be your guide.
Some ideas are:
- A spotlight on a student who has accomplished something; e.g. hiked the Appalachian Trail, won all-city honors, overcame a challenge, performed an act of kindness, etc.
- Neil DeGrasse Tyson-style space facts
- Steve Irwin-style animal facts
- Inspiring innovation stories from history and around the world
- A spotlight on architecture (ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Gaudi of Spain, etc.)
- Career spotlights
- Tips and advice from an old(er) person
The videographers we work with will be paid for the finished product. We need over 250 such videos per year.
In order for your application to be considered, please submit a sample video or portfolio highlighting your work — preferably in Full HD and related to the type of content that we are hiring you to make. When you submit your application, please also include your compensation desires.
You can find past videos featured in The Juice on our YouTube page.
