Create videos of adoptable animals for online website profiles and outreach to be used to find these pets including difficult to place - homes. In some cases videos will be used in digital publications and/or social media. During the volunteer’s shift, determine in conjunction with team members, which animals need video and animal priority. Spend time with and learn more about adoption center animals for capturing best footage and the animal’s traits to be displayed on their adoptables profile. Adhere to quality, brand and copyright standards regarding image and logo use as well as royalty free music. Must own their own video equipment or smartphone with editing capabilities and/or software. Production time is a 24 hour turnaround from shooting videos to submission given the quick turnaround needed for shelter animals. Videos should be 30 seconds to a max of 2 minutes. Minimal staging is necessary since raw footage gives an authentic view of the animal. Interested videographer volunteers are asked to submit at least 2 animal videos to showcase their work. Positions are limited and fluctuate based on animal population levels. All animals in need of filming will be housed at our Springfield location. Age 16+
