About the Team: The World is Fun is curating a team of amazing people that want to tell the stories of our 175+ Nonprofit Partners through video. While we most certainly welcome those with existing skills, we are also in a unique opportunity to provide training for anyone interested in trying some of the entry-level video production roles. So if you’re excited about gaining skills, we would love to hear from you!

What You'll Do: The gaffer, sometimes called the lighting technician, works with the director and the cinematographer to make the moment, the interview subject or the scene look as magical as possible. They are comfortable bouncing, articulating and manipulating light to produce flattering results. They are comfortable working with natural light or artificial lights to create results.

Understands:

  • Bounce boards
  • LED and hot lights
  • Diffusion
  • 3-point lighting
  • Catch light
  • Daylight, tungsten and kelvin ratings
  • Being a team player

Time Commitment: This role is a very flexible 8-10 hours a month with one monthly meeting to attend. Our ideal candidate for this role would be seeking an ongoing role for at least two projects or more.
