Director of Photography, Running Pony

Posted 16.10.2018

Providing creative solutions for our clients is a vital part of our success. And Running Pony, the largest production and post-production company in Memphis, is looking for a D.P. who can help conceptualize and shoot videos for a variety of clients and a variety of uses.

What do you need to be considered for this position?  A great “eye” for visuals, brilliant lighting skills, and an understanding that video production is rarely a 9-to-5 job. You know how to make a video look amazing, and how to keep an audience enthralled….but also how to work cooperatively with the crew and cast, and how to make sure a video meets the client’s expectations. You’re comfortable on set or in meetings with clients, and you’re the kind of person your colleagues will look to for guidance because you’ve earned their respect. You’re able and willing to shoot anything from commercials and corporate videos, to TV news segments and documentaries. And your ego is way, way smaller than your talent.

What can Running Pony offer you besides a paycheck?  Imagine a place where people actually like each other.  I know, right?  Our business is fast-paced, but it all works because Running Pony is a good place to be.  We care about each other, and the whole family analogy is more than an act. We are known for our work, but one of the things we’re proudest of is that we genuinely like what we do and the people we do it with.  Plus, we’re committed to spending time making our community a better place to live.

Please have: 5+ years experience working in film or video, a friendly and “can-do” attitude, and deep experience with various camera formats. This position often requires work outside of normal business hours, including weekends, so candidates must be willing to accept frequent schedule changes and be willing to travel as needed.

Know this too and we’d definitely like to talk: Field audio, operating a Movi, jib, teleprompter and/or drone.

What do you get?: This is a full-time salaried gig, with benefits including health insurance coverage for you and all your dependents (we pay 100% of all your premiums), short and long-term disability insurance, 401K with employer match, and more.

Thanks in advance for your interest in Running Pony.  We’re honored.  If we like what we see, we’ll set up an interview.  But we’ll let you know either way. No phone calls please. EOE M/F
