Position Summary:

As a television camera operator, you will work with video and DSLR cameras and produce required shots by combining the use of complex technology with creative visual skills. You may work on a variety of programs, for example studio or outside broadcast programs, documentaries, interviews, or news.

The position is based out of SHALOM WORLD’s office in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

Responsibilities:

  • Assemble, prepare, and set-up equipment prior to filming, which may include tripods, monitors, lighting, cables, and headphones

  • Meticulously plan shots beforehand
  • Practice the camera moves required for pre-arranged shots

  • Work quickly to meet deadlines
  • Keep up-to-date with filming methods and equipment
  • Repair and maintain equipment when necessary
  • Interact and maintain good working relationships with other members of the cast and crew

What to expect:

  • Dedication, patience, and stamina are needed. The work can be physically demanding as you have to stand for long periods of time and carry heavy equipment
  • You will work tight deadlines which may be stressful and there may be long waits between shots and takes may have to be repeated until the recording is perfect

Qualifications:
Technical skills and appropriate experience are far more important than formal qualifications. Experience in the television/film industry is preferred. Other relevant experience with lighting or cinematography is a plus. Must be authorized to work in the United States of America. All employees must undergo a background check prior to hire.
