Job Opening for Film & Media Arts Majors. The Utah Rivers Council seeks a contract Environmental Videographer, and we encourage film students to apply.

The Utah Rivers Council works to protect Utah’s rivers and clean water sources for citizens and wildlife. The URC has had many successes in protecting Utah’s rivers and promoting water conservation since 1995. Much of the URC’s recent success has involved citizen outreach through short online videos aimed at engaging Utahns on water issues. This has allowed us to build up a professional video production with multiple workstations and we are now seeking talent in order to expand.

The Environmental Videographer will assist in the shooting aspect of URC’s film projects. Duties include shooting video and compiling and organizing footage. This is an excellent opportunity for a student seeking an education on the basics of grassroots filmmaking, western water politics and sustainability issues in the water sector. This job is an introduction into the world of non-profit environmental work and a good opportunity to network with professionals in the environmental arena. The student will gain a glimpse at how film is used by nonprofit and advocacy groups to affect environmental policy.

Skills Needed: Excellent organization skills, comfort with multi-tasking and an interest in water issues in Utah.

Hours Available: This is a contract position with hours depending on our needs.

To apply: Send a cover letter explaining your interests and background, resume and a short video sample to: lena@utahrivers.org and CC hiring@utahrivers.org
