    CINEMATOGRAPHERS

    Deidox Films is looking for talented and motivated Cinematographers to shoot high quality documentary stories for Deidox Shorts and Deidox Features. We hire cinematographers on a per project basis.

    The ideal candidates will have experience in verité camerawork. They are able to capture the story while still making it look good in the process. They are able to film scenes, not just scattered b-roll.

    Description

    Deidox Films Cinematographers will:

    • Travel and live on location for the shoot.
    • Collaborate with a director and producer to capture the story and make it look great.
    • Operate camera with their Verité skills. Our work is 75% following people around and filming in-the-moment with your instincts/skills.
    • Perform basic documentary DIT work. Dumping footage after a day’s work. Making sure it is backed up.
    • Conceive innovative storytelling approaches to further Deidox Films’ mission.

    Qualifications

    The successful applicant should have:

    • Experience shooting documentaries in a verité style.
    • A passion for great stories and great images.
    • Ability to collaborate with a diverse team.
    • Understanding of what makes a scene and ability to film scenes.
    • Know camera technology enough to make it work. Our optimal verité crew size does not allow for a 1st AC. You must be able to set up and operate your camera, troubleshooting as needed. Sound will sometimes go into your camera, sometimes it won’t. Must be ok with both setups.
    • Ability to self-manage and meet time deadlines.
    • Ability to work virtually and to travel as necessary.
    • Knowledge of FCPx or Bulletproof a plus.
    • Ability to act appropriately around sensative situations.

    How to Apply

    Email a resume and samples of work to filmmakers@deidox.com.

    For the work samples, what do we want to see? Completed videos/films, not just a demo reel. Demo reels are not that interesting to us. Everyone can make a pretty demo reel. We are interested in your documentary camera capabilities as it relates to telling a story. Can you capture a scene as it’s happening? Can you make it look good in the process?
