I never know how to answer that.

Running and creating online media content that maintains their current and has tapped into the free-market demographics by providing incentives for the end-user, a more efficient system of delivery. Less

Darby Smart

Before scheduling a screening call would you be able to create a video following our guide lines listed below?

2 Answers

No.

No, for me too. Wouldn’t even look at my resume or portfolio. Very unprofessional to ask for free work upfront when creators have examples. Passed on them immediately. Less

a. What the hardest challenge you've overcome? b. Do you know what KPI/CTR means? c. What's your experience with video and how did you get into it? d. What editing software do you use mainly? Do you use premiere? e. I believe they asked me how I take criticism and how I responded to an instance of failure.

1 Answers

a. (very personal response) b."I'm not sure about KPI, but I studied the terminology and retained that CTR means click-through-rate." c. (Gave a backstory beginning from when I was a child and my dad would always get the newest video camera, etc) d. "Ohohoho yes, I use premiere, and after effects." e. I said that I take criticism into account and don't take it personally. My desire is to deliver a working video for the client that will drive business. I mentioned a project in which the client wrote a scathing review that went on for paragraphs, telling me the footage was useless. I let them (the interviewer) know I went in with the wrong equipment because I needed to create a portfolio and knew I could portray a certain story in that event and was ready for criticism. I read the entire scathing review, thanked him for his input, and then edited a video he really liked. He responded with "I have no idea how you extracted so much gold out of that footage." Less

How can we make good videos at a reasonable cost?

1 Answers

Scale. Plan a large shoot on location over a weekend and generate enough material for 30+ videos. Less

Survios

They had a handful of scenario-type questions, like dealing with a difficult employee (what do you do?). They even acted it out a bit as if one of the producers was the bad employee who didn't want to go a stand-up. So that was rather interesting.

1 Answers

I tried to role-play through it and approach it the way I would in a real setting. I thought it was a fine interview. I would have appreciated feedback to understand what sort of responses they were looking for. Also, I would have appreciated a more prompt response from recruiting rather than waiting for 3 weeks.
