World Vision constantly gathers high definition, top-quality video footage featuring our work in the field.

The intern will be responsible for reviewing footage from prior trips and editing together thematic b-roll collections and will upload these files to our global library (ie: “smiling children from Uganda,” or “Cambodia health clinic”). By editing the raw footage into short, excellent b-roll clips, the footage will be easier to use and will be more accessible in the global library. This intern will allow our teams to make better use of existing footage, avoid duplicate trips to the field, and will assist our advocacy and fundraising efforts. Intern responsibilities will include:

  • Reviewing archived footage from previous projects and extracting key clips that can be used in other projects.

  • Streamline the archive by creating thematic b-roll clips that will be used in future projects.

  • Exporting final projects into web-resolution files.

  • Uploading files created to the Global Digital Asset Management library for use by staff worldwide.
