We're Not hiring

***These vacancies are now closed***

We've got some rather exciting filming plans over the summer and we need some help. We're making a major international series of TV shows about our adventures and are looking for talented production crew to help us shoot them.

Producer/ Director

We’re on the lookout for some talented and experienced shooting producer-directors to head out on our summer adventures.

There are potentially multiple opportunities on the table. We’re looking for all-rounders who can manage and direct in challenging circumstances, and also shoot beautiful footage.


Job description

We want a PD to follow the action on two of our races and two adventures this summer. The successful candidate will be in the thick of the action and responsible for developing the stories around the drama.

Because we’re looking to tell the story of the rally, journalistic and storytelling skills are more important that capturing pretty scenery.

Ability to shoot beautiful footage and lots of coverage for ongoing stories – we’ll need to see examples of your best stuff

Shooting experience on Sony A7s or similar

Ability to record own sound to broadcast standard

Proven ability to plan story arcs for contributors and create dynamic sequences that can run over multiple episodes

Great interviewing skills and rapport with contributors

Super organisational and managerial skills

Ability to work independently and keep control of the editorial direction at all times

A faultless determination to get the work done in challenging and sometimes trying circumstances

Willingness to adapt to circumstances and roll with the punches (there should not be actual punches but we can’t promise anything)

Physical stamina

A sense of adventure

 

Duration

Mongol Rally - Mid July to end of August
Ngalawa Cup - Mid to late July
Rickshaw Run - Early August to mid August

We need volunteers to help shoot the Mongol Rally. The job involves riding with teams on the road to Mongolia, filming the action and helping to capture the stories. The videographer will largely work independently but will ultimately take direction from the PD and Adventurists HQ.

Interview and communication skills

Working independently

Organisation and kit management

Capturing audio to a high standard

Adaptability to the unpredictable

Enjoyment of travel
