Senior Video Producer—Engagement

At the Brooklyn Museum, we believe that art is an instrument for change. From Egyptian queens to the kings of hip-hop, we celebrate the transformational power of art in all its forms. Help us tell stories about art, and about our institution as it nears its 200th anniversary, by leading video storytelling and production at the Museum.

Reporting to the Director of Digital Content, the Senior Video Producer will manage the strategy, production, and post-production of the Museum’s public-facing video content for the web, social media channels, and other digital properties. In collaboration with teams around the Museum, the individual in this role will project manage, direct, and produce creative and accessible video content that tells stories about the Museum’s renowned collections and exhibitions; supports major events, anniversaries, and milestones; brings people in to our popular public and education programs; captures the bustling daily life in our building; and celebrates the vibrant communities of Brooklyn.

As the head of our small but mighty video team, the Senior Video Producer will oversee a videographer and video fellows, as well as manage contractors for external video production support as needed. This is an opportunity to establish an original and distinct style for our video content, develop content strategy to support the relaunch of the Museum’s visual brand and a new website, and play an integral role in expanding our digital reach in a moment of celebration and transformation for a beloved community institution.
