Artisans on Fire
Artisans on Fire is looking to hire a full-time video editor/shooter (Adobe Premiere) who is also proficient in AfterEffects, able to swing between a Motion Designer role and a Video Editor role as needed. Our work is diverse, spanning cannabis and casino campaigns to hunting product review webisodes, from short documentary profiles to animation-driven work. All of our work features post-production as a visible creative element, rather than an invisible component– so we are looking for similar portfolios in applicants. The Video Editor and Motion designer is a very collaborative role, working closely with other editors, our graphic design department, our social media department, in-house photographers and internal creative leads. We are seeking solutions-oriented heavy hitters that have ideas that are not only creative but effective as marketing tools. Our workplace is a fast-paced environment, with a vibrant culture and a colorful set of creative thinkers working in a modern way.
