Freelance Kickstarter Videographer

Portola Plush Co. – Posted by malouieAnywhere


Job Description

Portola Plush Co. is a small startup that creates innovative plush character toys with veteran artists and designers from Apple, Disney, and Pixar.

We’ve produced factory prototypes, tested them with kids (who really love them), and are gearing up for our launch. That’s where you come in.

We are seeking a Video Director / Producer who specializes in filming and producing videos for Kickstarter. We would present a few video ideas, and collaborate with you to select and plan the final idea. Then you would shoot the video and edit it. Bonus points if you have experience in dealing with kids, toys, motion graphics, and/or stop motion video (such as Gumby, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.). Also, we’d love to see examples of how you grade film, so we can get a sense of what it could look like.

Ideally, you have spent time working with other startups to launch Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and other crowdfunding campaign videos. It would be best if you have helped your clients achieve great success with their campaigns. You should have an innate sense of storytelling, eye-catching compositions, and really getting people to support a campaign.

Our main studio is located in Portola Valley, Silicon Valley, CA, but working remotely is fine with us, as long as you can travel to locations within the San Francisco Bay Area.

In your email to us, please specify:
1/ Your hourly rate
2/ Your estimated availability for the next 3 months (May through July)
3/ Projects you’ve worked on. Please include attachments, links, etc.
4/ Your credentials (resume, or your LinkedIn)

Please send your email to Marissa Louie (CEO):
