Zoomin.TV is currently looking for individuals with experience and looking to gain experience working as a video journalist and videographer on a freelance basis. Below is a bit of background information on who we are and what we are looking for.
What are we looking for?
In order to expand our network of video reporters, we're looking for freelance journalists who can supply Zoomin TV with video rushes. We are currently looking for aspiring film and media professionals looking to see their footage broadcast all over the world. Journalists would have an opportunity to learn within a multicultural environment how to meet the needs of a production company.
Who are we?
Zoomin TV is Europe's largest online video news service. The headquarters are located in the center of Amsterdam, but Zoomin TV also has several smaller offices in other countries. We are also based in Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Milan, London, Toronto, New York, Miami, Montevideo, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.
Zoomin TV produces hundreds of news videos daily in more than eleven languages, distributed on hundreds of digital platforms in more than thirteen countries.
Feel free to visit our corporate website, http://www.Zoomin.TV, to have a look at the different videos, the different language feeds and categories.
Zoomin TV works together with digital news paper platforms, but also with internet giants, such as YouTube, Daily Motion, MSN Video, AOL and Yahoo Video. Please apply if you interested to know the list of distribution in your particular country or region.
Each editorial desk of Zoomin TV produces daily up to twenty videos average, seven days a week. Zoom.in TV supplies her partners with videos within the categories of national and international news, business and entertainment news, sports, lifestyle and remarkable events. Zoomin TV collaborates with several content partners in The Netherlands and abroad, these content partners supply editors daily with video material.
The job consists of 5 minutes of unedited footage with soundbites (interviews) of one or two people on subjects and events happening in your area. The videos are then uploaded onto an FTP server or Youtube and we use your footage to edit down. For example, with the current situation with Flight 9525 in the French Alps, we had local VJ's getting footage and sending it along to us for our breaking news.
In the US, we are trying to establish a VJ network across the states and have people we can call on or ask if they have any interesting stories or events happening in their area they would be willing to film.
