Video Production Specialist

  • St. John the Evangelist Parish
Full time Media-Journalism

Job Description

St. John the Evangelist Parish is a dynamic parish, located in St. John, Indiana, just 40 minutes outside of Chicago.  We are a large, active and growing parish focused on evangelization, and our media ministry is an integral part of our efforts.  Even before the recent COVID closures, we recognized the need to grow our media footprint and that has become even more evident in these uncertain times. 


We are currently seeking a full-time Video Production Specialist to assist in growing and enhancing our media exposure. This position will be responsible for assisting with all aspects of video production (planning, recording, and editing). Our ideal candidate will be highly creative and engaged in generating and implementing new ideas.  Strong organizational skills are also required as assisting with mapping out projects and meeting each step on the timeline is essential.


For maximum success in this position, the following skills are essential:

  • Experience with Adobe Suite (Premiere, After Effects, etc.), Google Suite and Macbook
  • Video and audio set up and editing skills
  • Ability to operate DSLR and PTZ cameras for capturing live and recorded videos
  • Knowledge of technical aspects of lenses, film, filters, light and camera settings
  • Background in arranging studio sets to best suit the settings on the camera, and control the lighting equipment, film stock, audio and cameras
  • Strong planning and preparation skills such as maintaining, cleaning and testing all recording equipment and cameras to ensure every tool is in good working order each day before filming starts
  • Commitment to staying updated on new technology and current industry trends to ensure we are using the latest technology and methods

Because we are filming Catholic content, a strong background in and commitment to the Catholic faith is preferred.

 We offer a comprehensive salary and benefits package, part of which is the use of a house owned by the parish. Interested and qualified persons should send resumes and portfolios to Kris Ziegelhofer, HR Coordinator, at hr@stjohnparish.org.
