On-call Videographer

ICF is a mission-driven company filled with people who care deeply about improving the lives of others and making the world a better place. Our core values include Embracing Difference; we seek candidates who are passionate about building a culture that encourages, embraces, and hires dimensions of difference. 

@ ICF Next, we are fearless in finding new ways to solve problems, relentless in making sure it pays off for our clients and committed to making a positive change in the world.  

Join our community of mission-driven creatives, communicators, strategists, and technologists to challenge the status quo.  

We’re currently hiring for aOn-call Videographer. This position can be based anywhere within the Washington, DC Metro area.

Thanks to that little rectangle in your pocket, everyone can make videos. But not everyone’s a videographer. Not everyone can walk into an empty room and see where lighting, props, and people belong. Not everyone can shepherd a great idea from conception to execution. But you’re not everyone. You have the superpower of using video to persuade. If you want to use your powers for good, then we want to talk to you. 

We’re the DC metro area’s best-kept secret: an award-winning, mold-breaking team of creative gurus artfully leveraging our craft to help people quit drugs or prevent type 2 diabetes, save energy and protect the planet, and celebrate women scientists (just to name a few) – one campaign at a time. It’s exciting work, and we do it as a family who knows how to have fun. 

If you’re in the DC area and passionate about visual storytelling, creativity, and teamwork, you are exactly who we’re looking for. Get your work together and send it over. We’ll call right back. 

As an On-call Videographer, you’ll: 

  • Support public and private sector clients in tackling issues that really matter.  
  • Collaborate with our creative staff – from copywriters to creative directors – to provide visual options that deliver a powerful message. 
  • Make technical and artistic decisions on lens choice, exposure, lighting, composition, filters, camera movement, color grading, and more for shoots in the DC area. 
  • Prepare and pack camera and related equipment to meet shooting objectives. Can’t shoot on location if the gear is sitting in the studio. 
  • Plan storyboards, shot lists, and shooting schedules to meet objectives.  
  • Stay up to date with industry trends and tools to ensure projects are marketable and efficient. 
  • Make deadline. Seems obvious, but it’s kind of a thing here.  
  • Work until it’s good. We support and encourage work-life balance, but at the end of the day we have to deliver a remarkable product. 
  • Multitask. We’re a big studio – lots of people, lots of projects. You will have to know when to dive deep into the work and when to surface for everything. 

As an On-call Videographeryou will have:  

  • 5+ years of professional experience filming products for a variety of delivery platforms. 
  • Bachelor’s degree with visual, communications, or design focus is preferred.  
  • Strong communication skills. You need to be the intermediary between creative staff and client, with the ability to command a crew. 
  • High level of experience with Canon cameras and CN-E Primes lenses, and camera support systems including sliders, gimbals, jibs, and Steadicams. 
  • Experience with location production techniques to allow for remote participation. 
  • Still photography experience for events and portraits is highly preferred.
