Videography

Athens Habitat is in the process of developing video assets for marketing and outreach. We need students who are comfortable behind the camera, interacting with people, and editing in Premiere Pro on Mac to create videos capturing the personal side of our mission. Assignments may include capturing video of ReStore donors and customers, partner families in their homes or on the build site, construction volunteers, Habitat events, and “behind the scenes” with Habitat staff, as well as shooting training videos. Currently we’re simply using mobile phones for video capture, but students with their own gear are free to use that instead as long as it is compatible with our hardware and software.
