Current Listings: Part-time

video photographer

Seeking either male or female applicant(s), with some degree of professional experience in using video equipment to film, edit, and post You-Tubes about my work as an author and background in community mental health nursing. In these videos, I’ll be promoting principles of activism and advocacy for a wide array of progressive causes–all through a brand new book that’s a sequel to two others published since 1993.

The person who accepts this challenge will do the filming in Lawrence over a period of several afternoons, as early as June 1 and no later than August 1. We’ll be making multiple impromptu recordings, likely using the same setting, depending on your suggestions.

Before taking on this job, any applicant must have seen or be willing to see the 2016 Academy-Award-winning movie Spotlight, directly related to this new book. In the videos, I’ll be sharing tidbits of the back story I know well, as a privileged professional and eye-witness to the 25 years of exciting, often frustrating work I’ve been a part of, most that went on BEFORE this movie was ever thought of. In fact, I’ve been privileged to know two of the “real” characters in the movie (and learn much more about them in the course of my writing). One of these is my long-time friend and colleague, Richard Sipe, the actual expert adviser called on the phone frequently by the Spotlight team in 2002, and now one of the present-day “stars” in this new book.

WARNING: While this project may seem attractive, individuals who have a history of PTSD, for whatever reason, should be aware of the potential, often unexpected triggers that can pop up suddenly and understandably in the course of making these videos. This, in spite of the very upbeat, hopeful, optimistic, and positive charisma that I feel sincerely and hope to project, in spite of the grim subject matter. If, indeed, this becomes a problem, please be aware that getting the job done efficiently may require sharing the work with a second photographer or alternate.

Number of openings:

1

Compensation:

Expenses and payment are both negotiable. The greatest perk from this project may be what you're able to put on your resume. Plus, the word of mouth I promise I'll provide, letting other authors and activists know about you if you do a really good job. Whether you use your own equipment or what's available at Lawrence Public Library is also negotiable.

How to Apply:

Email with your resume attached to 1946writerdee@gmail.com. Also your phone #. I promise to follow up on each application, providing more info as needed.
