As a Senior Videographer you will spend more time in the field working on advanced video productions -- videos that typically involve pre-production of some kind. While working on these more complex video productions, you will work under a Creative Director’s command to shoot and deliver the final result. Not only will you gain experience working in a mid-level production environment with a Creative Director, lights, cranes, sliders, dollies, and other higher-end equipment, but you will also work in a more creative capacity.
As a Senior Videographer you have shown full competency in the Vanilla Video shooting style at family, sporting, music, and corporate events. It is now your responsibility to help train the next generation of Junior Videographers, and pass your techniques and acquired knowledge on to incoming team members. Senior Videographers are generally responsible for training between 1-3 team members per year. As you move into higher-end productions, you will continue mastering the basics of video production by teaching others. Once you’ve successfully trained at least 2 Junior Videographers, and worked under a Creative Director for at least 12 months, you will are eligible to become a Creative Director.
Vanilla Video prefers to internal recruiting and normally does not directly hire Senior Videographers. Because Vanilla Video is a non-traditional video production firm, we first recruit from our Junior Videographers. Senior Videographers at Vanilla Video are in a supervisory position, and are responsible for training and guidance of our Junior Videographers. Career advancement from this position includes Assistant Operations Manager and Creative Director positions.
