WE ALL LOVE STORIES, BUT SOME OF US WERE BORN TO TELL IT.
MAYBE YOU'RE JUST STARTING YOUR CAREER AS A VIDEOGRAPHER (OR EDITOR), OR PERHAPS YOU'VE BEEN HONING YOUR SKILLS FOR QUITE SOME TIME.
EITHER WAY; YOU MAY HAVE JUST FOUND YOUR CALLING.
MOST WEDDING VIDEOS SUCK
The traditional wedding video is loathsome. I'm in search of a film-maker to assist and create a well established cinema team. I'm looking for a visual story-teller like myself. Not a wedding videographer. I mean it; no event experience is required. I am bursting at the seams and moving forward with building a badass team. Always innovating and experimenting. Always creating. Not re-treading. If this sounds like you, we should talk.
Britani Dostal is well known for her devotion to story and craft. She's built a reputation of not conforming to the low aspirations of the typical wedding video, and as such garnered a clientele who appreciates her unique, artistic eye.
I'm looking for an aspiring, organized and passionate person to work alongside me to assist in editing and shooting wedding films.
THE DEEP DISH
Britani Dostal Photography is an established, high quality creative cinematography + photography company based on the Western Michigan Lakeshore.
I am looking to bring in just the right person to help build a unique and fun team environment. Business is booming and Britani Dostal Photography is expanding. This is the perfect time to join as I am now offering a full-time position [ or part-time contractor position ] open for the right creative professional.
I am looking for a Passionate Visionary, someone excited about creative intent and style. As a creative professional, I desire to have a fun and friendly creative who will pair well with me.
The ideal candidate will possess experience in video editing [ NLE experience is a MUST ] as well as experience behind the camera. Largely, this person will work directly alongside me as an assistant editor, as well as a second camera or first camera operator as experience dictates.
CONTRACTOR // OR // FULL-TIME
No need to sign your soul away. Join me for a wedding season and keep your side hustles. Try it on for size and see if this is a good fit for you. If you are feeling good [ and the feeling is mutual ] I’d love to offer you a full-time position.
Ideally I'm looking for someone to be “all-in” as I hope to build a life-giving team, but at the same time I understand if you want to test the waters a bit prior to jumping in fully with a growing team of intensely creative innovative storytellers.
MICHIGAN BASED + BEYOND
I hope to have a team based all over Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
Instead of focusing on one specific location, I plan to cover the whole entire state. Eventually, leading all the way well within the U.P.
Primarily covering weddings, means you will have the opportunity to travel all over the state and beyond.
You will have to provide your own camera gear; body, lenses, batteries, flashes, etc. *Preferably FF Nikon to match Britani Dostal Photography's unique style.
However, I plan to eventually have a stockpile of gear for everyone readily available for use. It's currently in the works.
FREE HUGS + HIGH FIVES
This is assuming you’ve showered recently and have since washed your hands.
Not only will you be supported, you’ll be surrounded by creative minds. A mind-melting-pot.
You have cool ideas. Innovative ideas that no one has done before. I want you to use them. Sure, I'll review for development, but I'm not into stifling. I am into stoking.
HERE'S WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR
SURE, I HAVE SOME EXPECTATIONS ABOUT THE TYPE OF PERSON TO JOIN THE TEAM. READ ON;
That means Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, or something similar.
NO PREVIOUS EVENT EXPERIENCE
Yeah, you read that correctly. You don’t need Event experience, but I am looking for someone with a creative video capture and basic editing experience; someone who wants to grow and learn.
The use of creative expression to tell stories. A sense of purpose. A drive. A vision. Bring that vision and together we’re going to make some suhweet stuff.
STORYTELLING + PACING
If you’re reading this, you know the subtle art and skill involved. The best stories aren’t told in linear fashion. The best stories are creative, outside-the-box, & fun.
