Recreation is a San Francisco based creative brand agency that integrates strategy, design, content, and video to tell powerful stories.

We are looking for Cinematographer & Video Editors to join our growing in-house production team. We have openings at all levels.

We’re looking for someone who has a passion for this craft and proactively pushes themselves and others to think outside the norm. Someone who has proven they can both shoot and edit a stellar, impactful story, regardless of the subject matter. Someone who can create a shot where there is no shot, to help the audience make an emotional connection with the subject. Someone who understands composition, selection and editorial flow, and can edit professional, finished video across a variety of styles, whether it's a brand launch manifesto video, a product how-to walk-through, or a corporate documentary.

  • Experience with documentary and commercial film production.
  • Mastery of professional cinema cameras (RED, ARRI, etc.) and related equipment.

  • Must be proficient with Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator, and AfterEffects. 

  • Must have the ability to create cinematic video content with strong storytelling and consistent pacing.

  • A working knowledge of color correction, audio mixing, motion design, and compositing are required. Please provide examples for each in your portfolio.

  • Experience editing short documentary or commercial pieces required. Please provide examples in your portfolio.

  • Agency or independent content creation experience a plus.
  • Must have a valid passport and be a thoughtful, pleasant, self-aware traveler; must be ready to pack up and hit the road as the agency shoot schedule dictates.

  • Must be able to work to deadlines and budget time effectively.

  • Studio, agency, and on-site production experience.

  • Still photography skills are a big plus.

Send CV and reel of work that you have personally shot and/or edited, preferably under your own direction.

This is a full-time position with travel to shoots required. We offer solid benefits, a work environment without a lot of layers or politics, and a chance to learn and grow in your role - join us to help make a difference for both our clients and the agency.
