  • The ability to create shareable video content for social media (especially Facebook, YouTube, & Instagram)

  • Experience in DSLR and/or mirrorless cinematography
  • Experience in motion graphics a plus
  • Experience living with a disability, illness, or mental health condition a plus
  • A learner’s mindset — the social media landscape is always evolving, and you’ll need to stay on top of the latest trends
