Job Description:

Our client, a large financial services client located in the Seaport District of Boston is looking for a Video Producer working with the Creative Services team.  This is a long term position.  Aquent offers well subsidized, excellent health benefits. 

As a Video Producer on the Creative Services team, you get excited about solving challenges while working in a collaborative team environment. Bringing stories to life is your passion and you’re not afraid to share interesting and unusual perspectives. In addition to video, being a communications chameleon is a must. The sweet spot is balancing a trained eye and curious mind to innovate and push boundaries within our existing brand tone and guidelines.
Daily life includes…a medley of video support - from concept to completion for both internal and external communications. Work crosses a variety of functions, including video, photography, audio, podcasts, animation, social media content, and whatever the next new thing might be. Every day is different, but you can count on collaborating with designers, video producers, and communications partners on the regular. Though your primary focus will be supporting video, be ready to expand your reach and try new things. For example, supporting campaigns, story-boarding animations, writing, acting as video extras, voice over talent, and more!
