Video Producer

November 2017 – February 2018

Soul & Surf are looking for an experienced video content producer to make engaging content to help tell our stories and raise our online profile.

You should be 100% committed, reliable, composed, a hard working team player, quality-oriented, well organised, have an eye for a story and have great interpersonal skills and of course genuinely enjoy making films.

The job will suit someone who likes more than just surf, with the desire to spend a few months immersed in and to capture the unique, inspirational cultures of Sri Lanka and India.

We want to create a variety of film content based around our content pillars;
which will include:

  • Interviews with our staff, our guests and inspiring outsiders
  • Instructional videos with our yoga teachers, our surf instructors, our chefs
  • Short ‘mood films’ for use across our social channels
  • Longer form story led content

You must own your own camera, sound, lighting and editing equipment and ideally have a water housing. You should be comfortable editing at a quick pace whilst ensuring the output is of the highest quality.

The role will be split with one month in Sri Lanka and one month in Kerala through the months of November-February.

To apply please make sure you include your latest showreel and at least two examples of your work with a few lines about why you’d be a good fit for us.

We are guests of yours (from May 9-May 25) at Soul and Surf. We are having a very nice time, thank you, but we wanted to say in particular how grateful we are that you have Sunil working here. He has done a superb job with helping us with the most odd requests (including finding us a palmist, an astrologer, a gemologist, a jeweler), and he is always enthusiastic, kind, gracious, tireless, patient, gentle, professional, friendly and thoughtful. We are writers for the New York Times and Vice, among other papers and magazines, and we travel a lot, and stay in a lot of hotels of all different kinds, and we have rarely if ever come across someone as good at his job as Sunil. He is always here, always working, always solving problems. Even on his day off he was here and took an hour of his time to help us. We can’t express strongly enough how he seems, at times, to carry the whole hotel on his shoulders. (That said, all of your staff have been terrific).
Thanks very much, we hope to stay here again or at one of your “pop-ups” soon,
Clancy Martin (NYT, Contributing Editor at Harper’s) and Amie Barrodale (NYT, Editor at Vice)

Guest Reviews

We are back in Mumbai (albeit briefly until LA) and already miss Sri Lanka.  What a lovely place you and Ed selected and we feel privileged to have been able to spend some time there. We want to thank you, Ed, Lucy, Josh and the staff at the House for one of the best vacations […]
