We're Looking for Someone Special
Job Title: Video Production Apprentice
Reports to: Creative Director
Location: Bethlehem, PA
Term: Full-time, 12-month initial contract
Salary: Commensurate with Experience
Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in working with us here at Guide Social. We’re looking for someone special!
We are a small video advertising agency located in Bethlehem, PA. We make online video ads for companies across the world! We’ve made video ads for dozens of Shark Tank companies and many others. Our videos have been seen by quite literally billions of people across the world.
I founded this company after a career running big video programs at New York Magazine, Business Insider, NowThis, Men’s Health, and Women’s Health, among others. I am also the author of Producing Empathy. Myself and Guide Social have been featured in Social Media Examiner many times for our work in the space. I also lead a premiere coaching program for filmmakers called Peak Video Creators.
Currently, I (Matt) have tackled every project as an auteur – I write, shoot, and edit all our video content personally. I’m supported by my wonderful remote assistant, Kelsey, who helps with casting and logistics. I am also doing all the other things involved in... ya know, running a business 😊
But we’re getting too big, too popular, too in demand now, and it’s time to add a teammate. We’ve just moved into a brand new studio and office space in Bethlehem, we’re growing, and looking to add to our family.
Why am I looking for an apprentice? The work we do is creatively unique. I want to bring someone on board who I can mentor to learn how to do all the pieces of production I do myself now and eventually take on full projects on their own.
To be frank, I am looking for someone I can teach everything I know so they can eventually be a full creative collaborator and part of the bedrock of Guide Social’s future. But we’ll start small and work our way up together as we take on projects. I am looking for a long term collaborator.
Is this you? Do you want to be part of something special? Do you love commercial filmmaking? Are you looking for something long term? Willing to learn and work hard? I would love to hear from you! 😊
You can see some of our work here.
Who You Are:
Have a solid understanding of basic filmmaking (shooting & editing)
Creative and Critical Thinker
Solid Writing Skills
Sense of Humor is required – our videos are funny!
Want to work in commercial filmmaking as a career (rather than desperately trying to get something with Netflix)
Willing to learn, this is an apprenticeship after all!
Can work in our Bethlehem, PA office each day full time (M-F, 9-6)
Enthusiastic, detail oriented, hard worker! Reliability, creativity, and overdelivering are the 3 most important qualities I look for.
