  • Position Overview

    Ecosense is a rapidly growing technology company based in Los Angeles. We are pioneering in the areas of color science, photometry, and mixed reality. Using the sun and the moon as inspiration, our ambition is to invent, inspire, and reshape how the world thinks about and interacts with artificial light. We have been fortunate to light some of the most coveted spaces on earth and to be recognized by the likes of Red Dot for innovation and design, as well as INC 500 and Deloitte’s Fast 500 for consistently making their fastest growing companies lists.

     

    Ecosense hires curious, collaborative, and autonomous visionaries who have a passion for tackling the unknown, solving hard problems, and answering questions that haven’t been explored. We are looking for an exceptional Videographer to join our team and help shape our video production capability, literally from the ground up. The scope of this role will impact the entire organization, and you will have the freedom to creatively invent and visually inspire. If you want to push boundaries in your field, then this is the position for you.

     

    You will be joining us at a critical period in our development. The current market landscape is cold, impersonal, and transactional. For all the attention around product specs, the story of light is not being told. In fact, light’s inherent purpose is diminished. Light is alive, and has the ability to tell stories, steer feelings, and shape points-of-view. Light’s impact is deeply human.

     

    As we rapidly build out our IP, we are looking for a creative video storyteller to innovatively translate technical ideas into human stories and intelligently simple expressions – so that both novice investors and technical lighting designers are equally informed and inspired. What we do is serious, and science-led. But the impact is human, experiential, and emotional.

     

    We are looking for a Head Videographer to set up, build, and lead what will grow into a full service in-house video production studio that will complete 20-50 projects annually. 

    This position plays a critical role in bringing the narrative of “light” to life.

    The Position

    You ARE our video department – your role will be to manage and execute company videos and form our department from scratch

    • Crafts and orchestrates design and storyboards, music selection, imagery, motion, VO, and visual design that stirs a response and “fits” the story
    • Able to work across a broad array of both short and long-form stories (e.g., inspiring brand films, customer stories, interview segments, entertaining tutorials and demos, explainer videos, and quirky, provocative content that is meant to shed light on common industry headaches – could be branded or even unbranded)
    • Oversees pre-production meetings for onsite, studio and field-based video shoots – making technical and creative decisions regarding locations, appropriate lighting, shooting angles, props, placement and type of microphones, other audio needs, and all production issues (obtains additional equipment as needed)
    • Films all material and edits all video – stitching together comprehensive and compelling narratives
    • Assembles, compresses, posts, and archives all final audio/video materials (ensuring quality control, color grading, appropriate file structure, and finishing)
    • Works with internal team or outside vendors (as necessary) to create animations, motion graphics, and 2D/3D renderings for insertion into video narrative

     

    The Person

    You are a highly creative visual thinker who can prolifically generate great ideas and follow them through to completion. With a demonstrated ability to translate complex topics into visual media, you have an eye for engaging visual storytelling and you take pride in your ability to be inventive, imaginative, artistic, agile, and resourceful.

     

    You possess dexterity in “style,” with the capacity to:

    • Select and work with existing roll/stock footage and photography, as well as create and shoot original material from scratch
    • Create stories across a wide array of topics, many of which will require specific and unique visual language, shooting styles, and tone/feel/personality
    • Your work reflects an intuitive sensibility to distill, to simplify, and to do more with less

     

    You understand the difference between “content” and “storytelling.” Because you love to tell stories (and possess a disdain for content), you are a self-learner who can’t help but to constantly seek new methods of visual articulation and creative editing. And most significantly, you view your work as your art.

     

    • Degree (and/or strong background) in film, graphic design, web design, visual communications, journalism, advertising, multi-media or related fields
    • Must demonstrate proven skills in shooting, editing, preproduction/planning, scriptwriting, storyboarding and general graphic design
    • Proficient with professional cameras, lighting, and audio/video equipment
    • Skilled in in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Media Encoder, and current video/audio production tools
    • Comfortable in video editing software - Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, etc.
    • Expertise in current motion graphics tools (including After Effects) is a huge plus
    • Technical expertise in other programs in the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Audition), is helpful but not required
    • Bonus: Experience in optimizing video content for paid advertising on social platforms
    • Bonus: Ability to shoot photography
    • Comfortable with a fast-paced, always-on, quickly-changing environment
    • Willing to roll up your sleeves in and open to creative feedback in collaboration with core team
