The ideal candidate is a confident and creative individual who can operate as a ‘one-man-production-band’ and effectively manage all aspects of production & camera operation on set.

  • We work with your schedule; we want to make it easy to fill extra calendar days.
  • We work in volume! We shoot 150 videos per month so we have steady work in most of our markets.


  • Interface with internal and external clients while managing on-set operations
  • Technically proficient & self-sufficient camera operator with experience shooting, lighting, and sound recording.
  • Conducting interviews with clients & customers for mini-documentary style videos and/or testimonials
  • Act as the primary cinematographer and camera operator for all shoots in your area
  • Able to assemble & manage additional crew/support for larger scale projects
  • Must be meticulous, technical, organized, multi-tasking and creative at the same time
  • Passionate about storytelling and making things look beautiful
  • Customer service is our utmost priority so it’s imperative that you’re patient with the clients. Someone warm and personable, a strong communicator with enthusiasm for their craft is ideal.

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Three plus years of experience and proficiency as a cinematographer
  • Must own or have access to a lighting package, camera, and audio equipment
  • Must have own transportation
  • Most importantly, we are looking for someone warm and personable, a strong communicator with enthusiasm for their craft. Customer service is our utmost priority so it’s imperative that you’re patient and able to “woo” clients.
  • Working knowledge of the visual arts and production processes
  • Ability to be resourceful and adaptable and be able to solve practical and conceptual problems

Lastly, this is a Director / DP job for on set productions only. Client management, including all pre-production and post production, is done by our team here in Los Angeles.
