The Hooligans Agency

About Us

The Hooligans is a new kind of creative agency — innovative, agile, resourceful, and uniquely poised to meet the moment…

Trump created a seismic shift in American politics by bringing entertainment and culture into the political landscape in a completely new way. His surprise victory sent a clear signal that Americans were not only ready, they were demanding that their politics be delivered to them in unconventional and entertaining packages.

The Hooligans Agency was formed to meet this unique inflection point in political communications – one where the lines between culture and politics have been blurred permanently.

Making content that seamlessly blends these two worlds is the beating heart of our creative strategy. We use cultural tropes, original songs, comedy, parody, sentiment, animation, found footage and a LOT of out-of-the-box thinking and ingenuity – WHATEVER it takes to disguise the medicine, make content that rises above all the noise and moves audiences to take action.

At a time when film shoots have come to a screeching halt, it’s this scrappy and resourceful approach that enables us to continue making great content for our clients despite the challenges the pandemic presents.

With a very busy year ahead, we’re looking to expand our network of like-minded, freelance creatives – from both inside and outside the beltway – for a variety of freelance assignments.

The Role:

We’re looking for a skilled pro who can work across various genres (comedy, action, emotional storytelling), is adept at character interaction and has strong staging, composition and cinematography skills. Equally, our ideal candidate is a great storyteller who elevates everything they touch.

The storyboard artist/illustrator will work on a wide range of projects including digital advertising and traditional tv spots, and various organic social media content.

Please note this is remote work only.

The ideal candidate is:

  • Politically engaged. You don’t have to have direct political experience (though we love that too!) However, you should be motivated and itching to put your skills to use for a variety of Democratic and progressive causes.
  • Nimble and flexible. Projects and deadlines can be unpredictable.
  • Experienced, willing and able to handle a fast-paced, high stakes environment with quick turnaround times.
  • Comfortable pitching.
  • Experienced working with short form content, specifically :15s, :30s and 1:00m digital ads.
  • A self starter who can meet deadlines unsupervised. All work is remote.
  • Strong communication and time-management skills.
  • Able to receive and incorporate constructive feedback. In fact, you might even welcome it!
  • Kind, empathetic, enthusiastic, positive, and intellectually curious.
  • Collaborative. Enjoys playing nicely with others.
  • Willing to go the extra mile.

Skills and Qualifications:

  • Minimum of 2 – 3 years storyboard experience and/or training.
  • Excellent story structure and writing skills.
  • Deep understanding of traditional art skills, perspective, color theory, lighting and form.
  • Adept in comedy, action, emotional storytelling, and character interaction.
  • Strong staging, composition and cinematography skills.
  • Ability to write clear and specific direction on storyboards.
  • Experience in video editing using Adobe Premiere Pro.
  • Experience in using 3D tools to create storyboards.
  • Ability to create vector art when needed.

Please submit a current, updated portfolio of detailed 2D artwork and storyboards.
