The Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) is creating a series of short videos with the goal of promoting nature in the Park, our educational programs, and ways to be involved. We require the expertise of a skilled videographer to provide staff and volunteers with technical support and consultation on filming techniques.
These 2-minute videos will be used in our Nature House facility, social media platforms, and various outreach initiatives. We hope for the final product to be one of our more effective promotional tools, inspiring viewers to care for nature through the work and mission of SPES.
This role will require dedicating 2-4 hours per week between March and November (with some flexibility) to fulfill the above duties.

- Curate videos to create a collection of high quality clips that align with SPES branding
- Work alongside SPES personnel throughout the filming and editing process, under the direction of staff and Nature House Host volunteers
