Chart Attack is seeking a full-time videographer and editor in Toronto!
If you've been keeping up with Chart Attack for the last year or two or twenty, you've probably noticed some changes. Since its early days as one of Canada's biggest music magazines (when "music magazines" weren't just fodder for nostalgic retrospectives, but something people bought and held) to its current online-only incarnation, we've been searching for the best way to simultaneously discover and promote the best emerging music in the country, while also pushing at the edges of both "blog" and "publication" at a time when both concepts are nebulous, hazy and, more excitingly, wide open.
That's where you come in. We're looking for someone who can oversee our video production arm, Chart TV, working closely with me (hey), our small editorial team, and the folks at our sister site ANDPOP, to create, develop and produce interesting and engaging video content that goes beyond your run-of-the-mill acoustic sessions and talking head interviews. That means reaching beyond the spoonfed PR scripts and creating formats that tell the story of the people behind the music, while finding new and interesting ways to showcase exciting upcoming artists beyond those thick concrete lofts and dive bar basements.
We're a small team, so you'll have to be able to do a little bit of everything: coming up with video ideas, reaching out to artists, handling technical aspects (including audio), organizing shoots, editing, and producing content. If you can make a nifty graphic and/or make us laugh, that's great too. Talent and know-how are important, but we're also looking for someone who fits the ethos and personality of our website. Poke around a little to see what I mean.
Head here for the full list of required skills and qualifications and instructions on how to apply. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
