Job description

Habitat XR is a multi-award-winning Johannesburg-based VR company with an important cause: to reconnect people to nature using immersive technology. We work with non-profit conservation organisations and produce our own immersive environmental education experiences. We have produced work from the savannah of the Kruger to the jungles of Rwanda; the springs of Yellowstone to the peaks of the Himalayas filming snow leopards. We also build temporary and permanent immersive installations to bring our content work to life.

Our growing team is hiring what we call a "Cinematic VR Artisan", a live-action VR generalist to be involved with various aspects of producing multi-camera 360 content and experiences. No prior experience in VR or 360 video is required, however note this is a HIGHLY technical form of editing. Experience in Premiere Pro and/or Final Cut is required, but the rest will be taught.

Time frame:
Commencing January 2022

Requirements:
If you are NOT a highly meticulous, well-organised and technical editor, this position is for you.

We are looking for someone with a solid foundation in editing, someone who understands the production supply chain well, is deeply interested to learn new skills in a new and incredibly powerful format and create very meaningful impact in the work they produce. This person should be a brilliant problem solver. Habitat XR is a long-standing pioneer in the immersive space, but trailblazing means there are often lots of technical problems to solve by Googling and YouTubing. If you're an intellectual and derive joy in solving these types of problems, read on.

We are also looking for someone with a heart for nature. There are long, challenging and rewarding days ahead - if you can't draw inspiration from wanting to help save nature, this job probably isn't for you either.

Role:

- 65% of your time will be stitching footage in Mistika VR or similar, monoscopic and stereoscopic (training will be provided as we know this is not common). This is a VERY time-consuming and meticulous process that can yield incredible results when people experience your work in a VR headset.

- 20% of your time will be offline and online editing using stitched footage in Adobe Premiere Pro and/or Apple Final Cut Pro

15% of your time will cover:
  • Being involved in the creative process around ideation for different jobs
  • Working with audio on a timeline including basic sound design
  • Creating content for social media and occasional traditional video edits as required
  • Helping organise, manage and build our wildlife stock VR library, "Noah's Arkive"
  • Ingest & data managing incoming footage from wildlife shoots
  • Learning new skills, techniques, developments and processes in the industry.
  • Telling us how to improve our processes
  • Taking full ownership and accountability of deadlines by creating production schedules

Nice- to- haves:

You do not need prior experience in VR/360 VIDEO, however experience is beneficial to applicants. Training and time to learn is part of the opportunity offered. FCPX & Premiere Pro proficiency is essential, experience in any of the following suites is highly beneficial:
  • Mistika
  • Nuke Cara VR
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Photoshop (basic digital painting using Wacom or similar tablets)
  • Unity
  • Unreal
  • Videography experience

If you have real initiative, you're a self-starter, fast learner, a problem solver, and experimenter, skilled at time management, good at communication, and have the ability to collaborate well with a small but ambitious team, you should continue. If you aren't - please close your browser.

Requirements

  • Two years editing experience in Premiere Pro and/or Final Cut are essential.
