I’m Looking for an Awesome Video Editor!

Hey there!

I’ll just cut to the chase – I’m looking for an experienced video editor to help me with my YouTube channel, Thomas Frank.

I make fast-paced, highly-edited videos that teach high school and college students how to study effectively and be more productive. Here’s an example of one of my videos:

This is a PAID position that will start out on a freelance basis; however, the right candidate may eventually be able to move into a more permanent role at College Info Geek.

At the start, you’ll be editing two videos per month. I’m aiming to scale up to one video per week in the near future.

To be considered, you need experience with:

  • Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects – we use the Adobe suite, so you need experience with these programs.
  • Cutting footage with an understanding of pacing and good timing
  • Basic color grading ability (using Lumetri Color in Premiere Pro)
  • Basic audio skills (using Premiere’s Audio Track Mixer and placing sound effects and background music)
  • Animation experience with After Effects – keyframing, masking, shape layers

You also need:

  • A willingness to independently solve problems. You’ll work closely with me and have chat access in Slack and Skype, but you should be able to solve problems and learn new things on your own.

These things aren’t required, but would be great to have:

  • Photoshop or Illustrator experience
  • Graphic design experience – knowledge of layout/composition is very helpful in our motion graphics work
  • Any advanced sound design or music background

Note: If you’re primarily a motion graphics artist – without a lot of video editing experience – you should apply anyway. If the right combo of candidates comes along (editor and motion graphics artist), I might decide to make two hires.

If you think you’re a great fit for this position, fill out the form below! Or, if you know someone who would be a great fit, feel free to send them this page. Thanks!

I’m looking to hire for this position quickly. So while there is no hard deadline, I’ll be evaluating applications right away.
