Video Producer for The SS Red Oak Victory!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: RICHMOND MUSEUM ASSN INC

Volunteer on a floating museum! Come join a kick-butt group of determined volunteers as they restore a ship and build a location for arts and education on a 1944 Victory ship in the Richmond shipyard! The SS Red Oak Victory is one of three remaining 1944 Victory-class cargo ships built in WWII; we are part of the Richmond Museum Association, are a 403(c)b non-profit and completely volunteer run.

We are looking for a Video Producer to be responsible for developing video content which is engaging, interpretive and factually accurate for our website, events, and for use on Youtube and other social media.

The successful candidate will have a portfolio of experience producing engaging, informative and interpretive videos for audiences of both laymen and history-buffs for parks and/or historic sites used on websites and social media. The candidate will also have experience in editing software, be self-motivated and self-directed, and produce timely, professional pieces. The successful candidate will have experience working with non-profits and volunteers, and with working actively and creatively in a team environment. Patience with techno-challenged individuals is a must! We are looking for a two-year commitment. Working remotely is acceptable but presence at some team meetings will be requested. The time commitment is approximately five hours a week.

From the Navy to the Merchant Marines, from the ERA to the Civil Rights movement, the SS Red Oak Victory stands as a platform for the genesis of culture-shaping experiences. Sailors and merchant marines on the SS Red Oak Victory fought in WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam. Women put on work-pants and welder’s masks and became known as "Rosie the Riveter" and Americans of all nationalities contributed to the war effort and built Victory ships together. We would like to keep their legacy alive, but also create a cultural experience that has relevance to modern audiences today.

Come join us!

RMA will make you feel welcome whether you seek to develop professional skills, deepen your own personal interests or just want to feel more connected to the past. The Museum and SS Red Oak Victory depend on volunteers with a wide range of skills so we can accomplish goals like operating the ship under her own power or ensuring every local student visits the Museum once during elementary school.

Volunteering is fun and fulfilling, leading to health benefits and enhanced quality of life, so join us today!
