Announcing Blue Chalk’s Portfolio Open Call

We’re excited to announce Blue Chalk Media’s first portfolio open call for talented producers, editors and cinematographers who are interested in joining our team.

With an ever-growing workload, we’re putting together a strong list of new and emerging talent that will become our first stop for filling junior and entry-level positions going forward. 

For the last three years, we’ve offered an annual summer internship. While our initial intention was to hire just one intern each year, the pool of talented creatives was so deep that we consistently ended up hiring multiple people from the hundreds of applications we received.

Anticipating that we may face a similar scenario this year, we’ve decided to end our traditional annual internship and move to a more flexible open call process instead.

So, what are we looking for? Our ideal candidates will be available to work from our Portland office and will be experienced in visual storytelling, extremely organized and well versed in Adobe Premiere. Most importantly, they will care about the stories they tell and the people with whom they work. If hired, they can expect to work on everything from story conception and pre-production to principal photography and post-production.  

The majority of new production roles will be based in our Portland, Oregon, office, but we’re also open to discussing the possibility of working from our New York office in certain cases.

The open call is aimed at students and recent graduates. Those with more experience are invited to fill out our Creative Partners form.

It’s also important to note that, unlike our summer internship program, we will be selecting candidates from this open call on a rolling basis. This means that even if you don’t hear from us right away, your chances of joining our team haven’t ended!

If you would like to submit your work to our open call, please apply on our website. The application deadline is Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, but we recommend you complete the form sooner rather than later, as we will be reviewing portfolios and hiring as we go. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
