We’re looking for editors to collaborate with our team as freelancers or join us full time. We’re looking for proven talent with 5 + years of editing experience.
Journeyman Film Company draws on the disciplines of filmmaking, journalism and advertising to help our clients build their story. We make short films and commercials that are authentic, human and beautiful, enabling our clients to build influence in their community and the economy. We’ve been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Atlantic Canada and were among the finalists for Small Business of the Year at the Halifax Business Awards.
What you offer:
You are all about the story, and you will use every tool you have to tell it well, appreciating that editing can make or break a piece of work. You take good raw content, and elevate it to the sublime. Pacing, compositing, motion graphics, titling and effects, story editing, colour grading. . . you’ve done it all and you do it well.
Most importantly, you can demonstrate a cross section of sample projects for a range of clients similar to ours, and your work is clearly as good or better! You have samples that show deep storytelling and a high level of polish, while exploring new trends and breaking conventions in client films.
You take ownership of your cuts and have strong opinions about how the story should play out. At the same time, you enjoy working with a team of producers, directors, and clients, recognizing that working together we produce our best work. And you can work with budgets, schedules and deadlines.
You thrive in a culture of challenge where you push yourself, colleagues and clients to think differently. You are equally comfortable editing a sizzling 15 second opener, a 30 second spot, or a tear-jerking 15 minute mini-doc.
You’re up on the latest software and technology, not just because you’re a geek, but because you know these tools can increase production value dramatically if you know how to use them. High end is the name of our game, and you know how to give work that added level of polish that makes it stand out, whether that means crafting a unique look, or wowing an audience with subtle yet powerful titles and effects.
But in the end, your main talent is understanding what the clients need, what the director envisions, and putting it all together to create a compelling edit that touches the soul.
You have likely travelled a bit, maybe speak another language (French is a plus), are empathetic and open-minded, and can relate to diverse folks in our world.
What we offer:
We work out of both Nova Scotia and Vancouver, BC, and we collaborate with talent locally and around the world. We’re about to move into our own newly acquired (and newly designed!) space in downtown Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. We’re two years into our strategic plan we built as a team, and we’ve already achieved many of the goals we set for ourselves — re-branding, winning awards, signing on with international clients, and doing pro-bono work for the community! Now, there’s more work to be done toward our vision to be recognized nationally and beyond. With us, you have a chance to play a big role at a dynamic point in our evolution.
We offer creative people a solid foundation on which to build skills and careers. We value flexibility and collaboration and aim to craft a company work life that is sane, humane and enjoyable.
For freelancers we offer competitive rates, and a supportive environment where we can all do our best work. For those that join us full-time, your salary will align with your experience and the value you bring to us, and we offer a comprehensive health and insurance benefits package to all staff. The company also currently has an employee incentive profit sharing program in place for which you would be eligible.
