Calling all photographers, videographers and multimedia producers! There’s a rare job opening at The Oregonian in Portland and what a job!
Thanks to the Mediastorm blog for posting the job.
Here’s the posting:
The Oregonian is looking for a multimedia editor to join their team of award-winning journalists.
This editorâ€™s responsibilities will be newsroom-wide. The new Visuals team member will:
* Edit multimedia projects quickly, accurately and to the highest journalistic standards.
* Add variety and strength to our daily multimedia production â€” increasing the tools for reporters and photographers and broadening the expectations for viewers.
* Continue the ongoing training of reporters, photographers and editors in video technique, technical problem solving and story-telling skills.
* Serve as an advocate for multimedia projects as editorial proposals are presented.
The chosen candidate will assist with helping to focus and better implement our newsroom-wide multimedia strategy. That will include editing and coordinating everything from clip video to highly produced multimedia projects. A special emphasis will include the continuing evolution of our photo department from a focus on the still image to one that embraces multimedia daily.
