Apply to Join Woroni TV in Semester Two 2018!

Woroni is looking to hire a new team of TV sub-editors to join our passionate team at ANU Student Media for 2018. Woroni TV is committed to engaging the wider ANU student body in audiovisual media, by covering news and events relevant to the ANU community, providing video services to the student body, and creating a platform for burgeoning video-content creators to allow them to develop their skills, talents, and styles further.

Descriptions for available positions are given below:

Camera Operator:

TV Camera Operators will work closely with producers and video editors in small teams, reporting directly to their assigned producer, as well as the TV Executive Producer and TV Editor. They will be responsible for tasks including but not limited to:

  • Pitching and providing input on video ideas and assisting producers with light storyboarding.
  • Operating audio and camera equipment to film relevant footage for video content.
  • Livestreaming events.
  • Providing input and advice to video editors on footage for the finished product.

Additionally, it will be expected that Camera Operators will have basic knowledge of all other aspects of video content production – this includes basic skills in video editing and production.

The role is expected to require approx. Eight – 10 hours of work per week, including compulsory weekly team meetings that you must be available for. This is a volunteer position, with the possibility of honoraria.

Camera Operators must be available for initial communications via Slack between 16-21 July, and an initial team meeting/induction on 22 July 2018, with an introduction to all the basics of video-content production to take place within that timeframe. They must be ready to jump straight in to video production by the first week of semester two (Bush Week).

Ideal candidates will have a flair for visual storytelling – shot-framing, subject isolation, camera movement and framerate considerations will be second-nature to them. They will be organised, efficient, and reliable – able to deliver high-quality footage under tight deadlines and adapt quickly given unideal production/videography conditions. Most importantly, they must be a team-player, and willing to commit to a weekly content-production schedule.

Previous experience in either DSLR-level photography and/or videography is preferred, but not necessary. All training in camera operation, video editing, and content production will be provided within the first few weeks of the role. Woroni encourages applicants of any background to apply. We also highly encourage you to apply for any of the other TV positions: presenter/producer, video editor, or news reporter, or any other Print, Radio or Business sub-editor position that interests you.

Applications will close at 5pm on 27 June 2018.

Video Editor:

  • Cutting together footage for their respective productions, including externally sourcing stock-footage and/or royalty-free music when required.
  • Basic colour corrections, audio corrections and graphics within editing.

Additionally, it will be expected that Video Editors will have basic knowledge of all other aspects of video content production – this includes basic skills in camera operation and production.

Ideal candidates will have a strong sense of audiovisual rhythm and have a knack for noticing and polishing the finer details in a video. They will be creative problem solvers who are constantly able to think outside the box and cut together a vision that might not have been obvious to the other members of their respective production teams. Most importantly, they must be a team-player, and willing to commit to a weekly content-production schedule.

Previous experience in any non-linear video editing package (particularly Premiere Pro) will be preferred, but not necessary. All training in camera operation, video editing, and content production will be provided within the first few weeks of the role. Woroni encourages applicants of any background to apply.
