Brand.gineering is an international media and marketing firm. We use technologies and systems that will blow your mind in partnership with the top media organizations in the world. We produce marketing content for leading brands and emerging companies. In the old world you might have called us an advertising agency, but advertising is dead. We produce immersive marketing story-worlds – far beyond what anyone has imagined in the area of content marketing. A new day has dawned.
JOB OVERVIEW – Contract
At Brand.gineering we design immersive story experiences that live on multiple platforms. The user experience uses all mediums. That means web, mobile, print, live events, film or video and gaming. Our focus is always on the customer-user. This is a highly creative and artistic position and three act/dramatic storytelling experience is essential.
The Video Producer/Director/Videographer will be expected to work under the guidance of a Creative Director to produce marketing or lifestyle content with our customers in the Austin/San Antonio/Houston Texas area, this may include occasional productions in Dallas.
The ability to craft a story with the proper “Three Act” or dramatic structure is essential to our process. Even documentary or marketing content, done well, has this structure. You need to be able to extract those highly emotional stories out of a situation, even if it is an oil rig or trucking company.
You will be proficient in HD video production, sourcy lighting that looks authentic or more dramatic if the situation requires, know how to use images to tell a story. You must also have excellent field audio skills.
You must go beyond being creative. We are not normal. Normal is boring. While all that stuff about teamwork, problem solving, collaboration and communication is great – our expectation is for you to be a mold breaker, not mold maker. You should be thinking ten or more years into the future in the area of interactive story world creation and development.
