Job Title: Marine Mammal Volunteer Videographers Opportunity

Agency: Wild Lens Inc.

Website: http://www.wildlensinc.org

Job Description: Wild Lens is a non-profit dedicated to bringing biologists and filmmakers together to better communicate to the public the various risks to habitats and wildlife species, particularly to understudied populations. Wild Lens is looking for dedicated volunteer videographers willing to document their experiences at various field jobs throughout the globe for our Eyes on Conservation (EOC) documentary series. Primary duties will include documenting key study components and objectives through film, interviewing primary investigators when possible, obtaining signed release forms from individuals for Wild Lens, sending footage to Wild Lens upon conclusion of the field season, working with film producers during post-production, and possibly shooting additional footage when needed after the field job is complete. Volunteer videographers must be willing to take the time necessary to obtain footage that will ultimately be used to compose and edit a short EOC video . The EOC video will be used as an educational instrument for organizations conducting wildlife research and to further communicate the mission of wildlife efforts in conservation.  Past projects include working with The Marine Mammal Center to highlight seal and sea lion rehabilitation and Ungulate conservation in Tanzania.

Positions will be filled as suitable applicants are found.
