Video Editor sought for Greenhorns

We Greenhorns have been documenting this young farmers movement in film and audio media for the last 13 years (Greenhorns documentary, Ourland Film series, Panels/ Events, Earthlife series). WE have a treasure trove of footage at our headquarters in Downeast maine, and as we approach our 15th anniversary and the production of Earthlife.tv videos we have a need to dive into the archive to haul up the pearls, string them gaily into a novel set of sparkling media necklaces and bracelets to drawn in the next set of young and ever younger farmers to this work of land healing. We are seeking someone with a passion for agro-ecology and a keen eye for beauty, abstraction, humor and agro-botanical learning opportunities to come work with us at our beautiful campus in Maine sifting and sorting and cleaning and pecking through the archives as well as recently shot footage from the Earthlife. TV shoots in the Desert Southwest and last summer in Maine— to create the systems and the shot lists and the ‘ pre assembly’ so we can enter into post post-production and layout into the Earthlife.tv web app/ mobile app. It also means cutting up little mini episodes that go along side it in a ‘ digital magazine’ format. This is a job that you can do for a few dedicated hours a day while pursuing another remote-work job using our wifi, or as a part time while also farming with us. We have very nice modest rooms looking out onto scenic landscapes and shared meals of all organic food served in our outdoor kitchen to a lovely revolving world of guests, paying customers, friends, artists, activists, scholars. We are very keen to create a ritualized method of sharing what you are finding with our team so that the co-creative process of discernment, narrative-creation, and capturing of all the textures and tactics of this movement. We need you to be VERY disciplined and self motivated, carefully archiving and ordering, updating the systems logic, making the work easier for the next person to come along behind you who is also working, and cleaning up a few snarly little mouse-nests of mis-labelling and confusions that have been lurking in our USB cable pile. Please send examples of your work, resume and letter of interest to [email protected].

Hourly Pay

We are prepared to pay $25/ hour for this work and to barter room and board for work on the farm.
