Job Description

Before you read this, we need you to understand this is the first step in the process. As a company building a Co-Op style media venture, we are looking for those with an entrepreneurial spirit with a desire to work with others of the same mindset. This is a salaried and profit sharing venture so we will be looking for specific traits. Your motivation and creativity is the most important thing. Even if you have only used a smart phone to shoot and edit, please apply. Thank you


We need video editors who can use Adobe Premiere since our platform will run off that in the beginning, however Final Cut experience will be accepted if you want to use your own equipment.

Your duties may include some or all of the following:

  • Edit raw footage content for producing film and video.
  • Perform video and audio editing based on story sequence and continuity.
  • Use creativity techniques in designing graphics.
  • Work closely with producers and directors during production.
  • Create the voice over text and other commentary for the video.
  • Cut video sequences effectively to ensure the scenes are seamless and flow logically.
  • Review the script to better understand the video production requirements.
  • Perform all editing work including inserting music, sound effects, story boarding , etc.
  • Prepare a logical storyboard by combination of the most effective scenes.
  • Review all edited tapes to identify any issues and recommend changes as necessary.
  • Develop superior skills and expertise in handling computer editing equipment, video switching devices, etc.
  • Discuss with directors and producers about video layouts and editing styles.
  • Collaborate closely with others in audio and visual teams to create continuous and complete stories and graphics.
  • Organize and assemble video segments to deliver continuous and sequential story of specified length.
  • Develop post-production models for films.
  • Organize video screenings for directors and producers to get their feedback.

On a larger project you may be one of several Editors with different jobs and specialities such as offline editing (making the rough cut), online editing (producing the final version) or sound editing.

There also will be times you will be asked to make live edits during streaming online presentations while a video team is in the field. At times you may be on location with the teams for larger events like Music Festivals.


We will go with energy and drive over experience any day. This company is looking for creative team members that are willing to try new things, continue growing, and want to impact the local community in a positive way. As was said above. We will be using Adobe Premiere for video editing so experience using this software is great but we will train the right person if need be.


There will be a starting salary which will raise above the median pay in Arizona after the company hits certain milestones which will be discussed during our second round of interviews.

We will be creating video teams to cover the following cities:

  • Apache Junction
  • Chandler
  • Gilbert
  • Mesa
  • Queen Creek
  • San Tan Valley
  • Tempe
