Red Tricycle is looking for a video production/photo person for our content marketing department. We would like to start ramping up our video portfolio, which consists of short, 1-minute social videos focusing on crafts, recipes and toy reviews. See example here.  We are also considering adding funny kids interviews, other viral ideas and have larger (paid) client projects that crop up several times a year. 

We are open to approaching this opportunity a couple of ways: 

– a recent college grad, looking to work/ build a portfolio (paid hourly) 

– a small design shop or single person willing to barter for free office space in beautiful Sausalito and an opportunity to collaborate on bigger paid projects

– in either scenario, we can also support video distribution and promotion of independent work (assuming it’s family friendly content) through our web, email and social channels. We reach 12 MM people per month across channels. 

The hours per week really depend on skills/ experience. We’d like to publish 2 short 1-min videos per week to start, with potential to ramp up.
