Equipment to be used (provided): -

Camera to be used will be a Sony or similar 4k shooting handheld Video camera. Most probably a Sony RX0 II or DJI Osmo Pocket. Suggestions will be welcome because the investment has not yet been made. You will not need to bring any equipment to the shoots which saves you the trouble of carrying extra items when travelling to and from the location of shoots. 

Requirements: -

The operator will be provided with weather protective equipment when needed, if they do not already posess such equipment, and must be able to keep up with the pace of the shoots when out and about.

It is an added benefit, if you are able to produce the final cut of the episodes at the end of each milestone in the project. Additional pay will be provided for editing, finishing and production of the episodes in a format that will be possible to deliver to viewers through streaming sites. A computer will be provided for performing resource intensive tasks. 

A brief outlook into the project and the subject of focus: -

Benefits provided: -

Due to the nature of the shoot, it is very likely that you will be granted a free monthly pass to the gym where the shooting will take place. You will be paid slightly higher rates for working on weekends. An option will be offered to you where you can adjust the amount you are getting for a compensation in the form of a percentage of the total profit made due to the prospects of the final video being released. Bonus and heightned pay up to 4x will be provided for filming, when required, of prospects that are not related to the subject of the main project. 

Ongoing contracts will most likely provided for the start of the next year with an increased salary for successful candidates, should they choose to work on the same project again in the future.
