They are documentarians. Filmmakers. Designers. Web-developers. And they come together to make world class branded content for clients. Welcome to Courageous, CNN's innovative studio. Last year Courageous produced over 500 films and numerous other events, interactives, podcasts and custom assets last year. Their work is compelling, substantial and truly innovative.

**The Job**
CNN's Brand Studio, Courageous, is looking for a full-time filmmaker - a NYC-based Multimedia Storyteller who will join a thriving business that grew by over 50% last year. The company was founded by over 4 years ago and is still run by filmmakers for filmmakers. This can be seen in the quality of storytelling and cinematography as well as the breath of techniques employed. We pride ourselves on pursuing unique, compelling stories for a wide variety of brands and telling them with a sweeping, cinematic style. While most of our work is short-form video, a significant and growing portion is comprised of interactive articles, virtual reality, live-broadcast ads, experiential events and long-form documentaries. Our work is delivered to an audience of hundreds of millions via CNN, HLN, and Great Big Story via TV, Digital, Mobile, and OTT. Our mission is to create experiences that the fans of our properties will find meaningful, engaging and conversation-worthy while fulfilling the goals of the brands sponsoring the content.
As the ideal candidate for our Multimedia Storyteller position you will be an endless fountain of creative ideas and an adventurous filmmaker. You naturally find relevancy in the seemingly mundane and can miraculously spot narrative hooks wherever you look. You then possess the ability to shepherd that idea from initial concept through creative development and production. Developing great ideas is an important part of the job, but the real magic comes in the thoughtful way you bring those ideas to life. We're creatives, not content farmers. Clear communication (and a great attitude) is key. Be ready to make 10+ films in 2020.
**The Essentials**
+ 5+ Years Experience telling compelling stories (This could be as a journalist specializing in video, a filmmaker, an animator, or an advertising creative)
+ Proven experience is a must.
+ You care deeply about your craft and have a strong working knowledge of how to lead a shoot in the field plus a demonstrable understanding all the moving pieces involved in a multifaceted production process.
+ Excellent writing skills
+ Some real enthusiasm for the pitch process
+ You're 'good in a room' and poised in front of clients / commissioning execs / an EIC
+ Good at working with clients directly and great at handling feedback
+ Able to juggle multiple projects in a fast-paced but supportive environment
**The Perks**
+ Paid time off every year to volunteer
+ Access to well-being tools, resources, and freebies
+ 2018 Best Company for Working Mothers at orkingmother.com/best-companies-turner
