Digital Video Creative

If you read this we probably don’t have to tell you how important video has become as part of a brand’s social media presence. To further expand our social content department we are looking for a sharp, digital video creative passionate about writing, shooting and editing stories uniquely tailored to social media. You speak the language of the digital world and are a daily consumer of content on platforms like Instagram, Snapchat & Facebook (Live). You have a keen interest in pop culture & entertainment and are up on the latest trends in the social media space. You are a storyteller with a proven ability to create compelling shareable video and a track record in one or more social channels to prove this.

Although we expect you to be able to produce videos from a-to-z on multiple occasions, you’re still part of a team supporting you the same way you support them; a team consisting of social marketers, creatives, copywriters, art directors, editors and motion designers

What you’ll do:

  • Most of the time: shoot, direct and edit social videos in any possible format and genre (from fashion films over telecom to crazy Snaps, from people portraits over editorial to stop motion)
  • Numerous times: help develop original short-form content / write scripts
  • At regular times: we send you all alone on a shoot with a client
  • Many times: translate story ideas into visual sequences like storyboards, moodboards, etc 
  • All the time: enrich the team with your passion and knowledge of upcoming tech advancements and new platforms and possibilities
  • Infinite times: Juggle multiple projects at the same time
  • From time to time: shoot behind-the-scenes & edit case movies (although we also have freelance editors in case you’re too busy shooting :)
  • You’ll slay dragons while the world is watching on Facebook Live
  • Eat. Sleep. Shoot. Repeat

What you have:

  • A degree in film, journalism, communication, marketing or any related field (or you don’t and convince us otherwise!)
  • 2-3 years of experience working in digital media, social media or production
  • Knowledge and experience with cameras beyond the one on your iPhone (preferably you know how to handle a Sony FS5)
  • Strong experience with editing software (we work in Adobe Premiere)
  • Perfect writing and verbal communication in Dutch. French and English are a big plus.
  • Great taste and a love for good design - your instincts tell you what works and what doesn’t
  • You have a can-do mentality
  • You have an understanding of execution formats and knowledge of creative/design/layout best practices for the various social media networks
  • Team player you are
  • A portfolio (share anything you seem fit to convince us of your skill set and way of approaching projects, even if it was never produced)
  • You are Positive, reliable and consistent with dedication to produce top quality work.
  • Bonus points for experience with Adobe Photoshop or After FX
  • Even more Bonus points: illustration, photography, retouching, editorial, HTML 

What we offer:

  • Cliché, cliché: you will receive a competitive salary
  • Now for something slightly more original: we can also offer you just about all conceivable fringe benefits
  • These Days works for different customers. Some brands live around the corner, others are European players
  • You will be immersed in our team of experienced advertising grandmasters and young prodigies
  • We are easily accessible from all directions by car, public transport, bicycle, etc
  • We are part of the WPP Network, which offers opportunities for your further training and career
  • Talent development, training & education via Wunderman University and WPP’s tailor made programs (up to MBA)

These Days is a cheerful mix. We do not care about religion, skin colour, nationality, … as long as you know your profession
