I work for a small production company that is branching out to Houston. We shoot a pretty specific style of photos and video for commercial (office) real estate, and we're looking for a few ultra-reliable shooters in the Houston area. Prior experience in real estate photography and video is a big plus, but we encourage applications from anyone who is interested and willing to learn as well.
TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE ROLE, YOU MUST SUBMIT THE FOLLOWING VIDEO TEST WITH YOUR APPLICATION (If you have an existing video you’ve created that fits the below requirements, that’s fine to share as well):
Using video equipment you already have, shoot a video tour of an interior space (could be your home, apt, AirBnB/hotel room, etc.) in a way that communicates the layout, quality, and size.
Keep the camera movements smooth and continuous. In the final video, the viewer should always know where they are in the space.
Edit the clips together with simple cross dissolves to make the video as short as possible without losing any important information about the space.
The test of a successful video is if the viewer can draw a floor plan of the space after watching the video.
Share completed content in any way that works for you (Gdrive, Dropbox, Vimeo, YouTube, etc.) Please include your email address, camera model, lens collection, and phone type in your submission.
Some pro-tips for the camerawork:
Shoot with a wide lens
Stabilize your camera somehow
Keep your horizons level throughout the video
Keep the pacing slow
A little about our shoot days:
We will typically assign 1 or 2 locations per day, usually in/around downtown Houston, but sometimes also the surrounding areas as well.
8 hour maximum
Potential for multi-day contract commitment or even full time
