Filmmaker/Editor Needed for Music Video Production

CSpence Group is seeking a filmmaker/editor to assist Chris Donohoe, a singer-songwriter in the production of a music video for "Innocents," a political song about the profound impact that gun violence has on our lives.

"Innocents" is about our society's willingness to put up with gun violence and the tragic loss of life that comes with it, over and over and over. It’s a darkly sarcastic and cynical lyric with a haunting musical production.

Listen to "Innocents" below:

WHAT YOU WILL DO

You will be responsible for seeing the project through from editorial vision to final delivery, as well as corresponding directly with the client. CSpence Group will not be producing the film, but are supporting Chris Donohoe in his search for a filmmaker/editor who is independent and can follow through on a compelling vision for the video.

LOCATION

San Francisco, CA

VIDEO

As long as the song, approximately 5 minutes. 

Chris has a conceptual idea of a visually interesting montage of media footage (news video/newspaper headlines, etc.) of shootings in the U.S. This would not be a performance video, and the artist would not be featured.

To be distributed on his website www.chrisdonohoe.com and all major online media platforms (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)

CREATIVE DIRECTION

Chris would provide some creative direction, but is looking for someone who understands the concept, visually and thematically that he is going for and can run with it. The filmmaker/editor would be the director of the music video and engage the resources to find footage, an editor, etc. 

KEY DATES

Looking to begin as soon as possible.
