Company: Alayna Joy
Location: North Vancouver, BC
North Vancouver, BC
$20 an hour
Hi there! My name is Alayna Joy, and I create educational comedy content full-time on YouTube (you can find my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/MissFenderr). Mainly, my content centres around sexuality, the LGBTQ community, and trying new experiences. My focus is on creating videos that are entertaining and accessible, interesting and informative, with the goal always being to bring light, laughter, and a possible new perspective to the audience. I’m excited to announce that it’s time to start expanding my team to enable my business to grow, get creative and take on larger projects.
I’m looking for a videographer who is aware of what I do as a full-time content creator, or is excited to learn more! It is absolutely necessary that you have a passion and drive for the various topics that I cover, such as the LGBTQ community, sexuality and overall wellness, and that you are committed to reducing stigma, increasing education and spreading awareness around these subjects.
Ideally, I’m looking for someone who is comfortable contributing to the content from behind the camera, whether that be through well-timed zoom-ins or laughter, I am excited to have you to bring your personality to each shoot – an Andrew to my Shane, if you will.
This is a freelance position, but I would like to hire someone whose value shines through, and who really enhances the content. I want someone who not only can get the shots I set for them, but also who brings new ideas to the table and takes initiative to improve the quality of the content. If you are Vancouver-based, want to work behind the scenes on online video content and be exposed to new people and communities, I want to hear from you.
