Job Description

We’re a small team with fun clients, big vision, and huge aspirations. We’re looking for a senior videographer and editor (with motion graphics experience) — someone with an eye for shots, a knack for pulling stories from interviews, and the skills to create and tell authentic stories. You deliver beautiful footage and films, and love to nerd out about new ideas and equipment. You’re passionate about spreading the story and helping mission-driven organizations navigate new landscapes. You know that when your Tribe wins, you win. As a member of the video team with Team Tellwell, you help lead the charge for creating compelling visual content, will work with clients who have strong values and missions.

As a senior video storyteller, you will continue honing your craft in filmmaking and refine your storytelling abilities. You also have a strong affinity with the Tellwell brand and company culture, and believe in Tellwell's goals and future growth. It is your responsibility to help cultivate that enthusiasm in your creative team.

Client Partnership & Day-to-Day Communication

Stellar client service is an art. When your clients ask questions, you give them true answers — Tellwell doesn’t make things up to cover things up. You communicate with them in their own organization’s language — you become a part of their organization just as much as they’re a part of ours.

  • Knowledge of lighting basics with ability to work on the fly. 90% of our productions are done on the fly, which means we have an idea of the environment, but it’s not planning out every individual light fixture. Working with our environment and changing on the fly is a key part of the role.
