Stand Up Republic (SUR) seeks freelance video producers who can conceptualize and produce engaging political videos that make an impact on the national discourse. This is an as-needed position, not full time employment, that would work on a project-by-project basis with SUR staff, especially the Communications Director. SUR is looking for proven professionals as well as talented amateurs who are passionate about defending democracy and eager to engage in both campaign and advocacy work.
Video projects can range from light video editing to original scripted ads and even full animation video, depending on your skill sets. Stand Up Republic prioritizes creative ad concepts over boilerplate political ads, so creators with a penchant for innovative ideas are highly desired.
Founded in 2017 by Evan McMullin and Mindy Finn, Stand Up Republic mobilizes a cross-partisan, national network for the defense and strengthening of American democracy. Through media and grassroots campaigns, we fight for accountable government, pluralistic society, healthy media, and electoral reform. We believe that it is our shared civic duty to defend and advance the values, norms and institutions that protect our freedom no matter our political affiliation. If we allow these matters to become partisan, then we risk losing them as leaders and political tribes put their own interests above those of the nation. Stand Up Republic works to unite all Americans around these foundational elements of our democracy.
SCOPE OF WORK:
- Storyboard, produce and edit original concept ad-length videos.
- Manage 3rd party assets like media licensing and voice over actors.
- Film and/or edit direct-to-camera video messages.
- When appropriate, pitch video concepts that help elevate the SUR brand or drive hard hitting messages.
- Experience in political ads or advocacy highly desired.
- Experience in short script writing preferred.
- A passion for creating content that tells a story and makes an impact.
- A creative flair that can be applied to inspirational content as well as hard-hitting ads.
- A deep appreciation for pro-democracy and reform movements, especially from a center-right perspective.
- Impeccable attention to detail.
- Ability to juggle multiple projects at once.
