Video Editor / Videographer

The Depression Project

  • Date Expired: 2020-09-25
  • Location: 20-40 Meagher Street, Chippendale NSW, Australia sydney 2008
  • Salary: Not specified
  • Industry: Media and Digital
  • Position: Production
  • Work Type: Casual Work

We are looking for an ambitious, passionate, detail-oriented, and experienced video editor / videographer who's a true creative at heart. Initially the role will be casual / part time but there's a lot of room for growth. The right candidate will be working alongside our co-founder to create powerful, emotive, and educational content.

  • Your work will touch millions of lives every week
  • You'll be part of the world's fastest growing mental health platform (increasing by 150,000+ followers a month)
  • Rapid career progression

The Depression Project was founded by two brothers who are extremely passionate about giving those with mental health issues the help they need to get better. After being disheartened with the resources, support and treatment available, they started this project on social media and have amassed a following of over 1.5 million across all channels, have a monthly growth of over 150,000+, (soon to be 300,000+ a month) and a weekly reach well over 5 million. However, this project is just getting started.

This job is NOT for those who want a “cruisy job”, who just want to stick to the brief, and who care more about logging hours than the quality of their work. This job is for the dreamers, the ones who “think big”, and the ones who care deeply about having a positive impact.

Your work will genuinely touch and save many lives, you’ll be given a lot of creative freedom, you’ll be pushed to develop and reach your potential, and you’ll be joining our project in an early stage in a role that has room for incredible long-term growth. Are you ready to seize this opportunity?

About The Role:

You will be working alongside co-founder Mathew Baker – a confident, hard-working visionary who brings the “therapeutic direction” to The Depression Project. Mathew is used to being on camera – from live videos to courses, he isn’t afraid to tackle any topic of mental health and always pours his passion into every piece of content he creates.

The work:

  • Helping create all things video for Instagram, Tiktok, Facebook and Youtube
  • Bringing raw footage to life with text animation, cuts, effects, and more.
  • Filming
  • Elevating the production quality of our content – especially courses
  • Adding your creative input on how we could pull off unique ideas, concepts, and messages
  • Creating art – turning an already emotive message into something so powerful it transcends words. You don’t know how to describe it, you can’t take your eyes off it, and you want to share it with everyone you know
  • Challenging us with your own perspective, ideas and opportunities you see as you become more entrenched in our vision and values.

This job will start off with casual / part-time hours but will have potential to grow to fulltime very quickly.

About You:

  • An artist who lives, breathes, and sleeps all things video – someone who’s been craving the opportunity to pour their heart, creativity, passion and talents into something that will touch millions and millions of lives
  • A passion for mental health
  • A deep thinker – as an artist, the more in touch you are with the human experience and the more emotional / psychological depth you have, the more you will connect with your audience.
  • Positive – depression is a “dark” topic but we are positive about what we do and the change we are making. This attitude is essential for longevity in this space
  • An expert with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects
  • A great storyteller
  • Flexible and adaptable – due to our fast growth things change very quickly. Some ideas take off, others don’t. One week you may fully focused on editing a course, another week it may be editing 50+ Tiktok videos, another week it may be spending your whole time on a 3 minute video we believe will go viral and have a huge impact
  • Hardworking and driven – if things take off you may be managing a team in 1-2 years
  • Organized – you’ll be managing a lot of different projects / content.
  • Detail-oriented – high-quality production is essential

How To Apply:

If you think you’re a perfect fit for this role, please send a Resume and PDF cover letter that includes:

  • Why we should hire you
  • Links to your 3 favourite works you’ve created – with an explanation of why you love them
  • 1-3 social media / Youtube pages you believe are doing well

If you decide to apply, please put a lot of thought into this cover letter. We want to feel the passion and drive you’ll be bringing to this role while also responding to these prompts that have been selected with purpose.

Please note, there are a high volume of applicants for this role so the review process will take an average of 2-3 weeks with only successful applicants being contacted.

We look forward to hearing from you!
