Seeking video editor for local band
July 22, 2019
Hi UT Video Dept~
My local Austin acoustic band is shooting live studio videos next month and looking to collaborate with a student or former student video editor! We thought this could be a great opportunity for a student looking for even more experience. Please see more details about the project below. We appreciate you sharing with any of your advanced video editing students who are efficient, reliable, professional and willing to work with an indie budget.
Thanks, Dre Mazzenga 914-419-6728 email@example.com
BAND VIDEO SEEKING VIDEO EDITOR - AUSTIN TX
Director James Conant (link to his work here:
https://vimeo.com/user39514117 ) will shoot a 3-camera promo reel of a the "Dre Acoustic" cover band live in studio on August 11th in Hutto. James normally edits his own footage but he is currently working on season 4 of “Iron Ressurection” so he is not available to handle post-production. For audio, we’ll be capturing the sound both from mic’ing the PA system live as well as capturing each channel’s input feed into a ProTools session on set. We'll likely mix down all the audio together to create the best combined live sound, will make that judgement call after the content comes back and see how it sounds.
The formats of the band project we’re shooting are:
1. Solo (3-5 songs)
2. Duo with Cello (3 songs)
3. Duo with Bassist (3 songs)
4. Trio (3 songs)
5. Quartet (4 songs)
What we're looking for: An experienced video editor who we can work alongside in person to edit the video footage together into multiple smooth finished products. The finished video projects we’re looking for will be 1 video highlight reel of each of the 5 project variations with snippets of those songs within. And then we’ll create 1 long “master” promo reel that quickly touches on each version of the project for any client that just needs a broad overview of the choices. The finished videos will be hosted on our website / youtube / vimeo and pitched to private event clients. Editor is also welcome to feature mutually agreed upon content on his/her website portfolio but content cannot be used commercially or via social media without express permission. We are open to discussing compensation, keep in mind this is an "indie" project with most of the 10-person cast and crew donating their time, therefore budget is limited. Please submit your proposal including rate and any relevant portfolio work that displays your video editing skills.
