Big Slate Media is a Knoxville based content creation company focused on creating video content for clients to promote their business. In addition to video production services, we provide a full-service management of social media accounts, Google and YouTube ad management, email marketing campaigns, and website content management. Our goal is to not only make incredible content but manage the campaign and measure the results.


We’re looking for a top-notch videographer and editor to join the team as our Director of Photography (DP). The absolute ideal candidate for this position is someone who may have their own freelance operation and is looking for an opportunity to focus on their creativity and not have to worry about all the billing, new business hunting, and client management. First and foremost, we need someone who is fun, creative and gels well with our small team and clients. We’re a goofy group so weirdness is welcomed. Secondly, this person would be very adept at technical understandings such as shutter speeds, frame rates, ISO adjustments and other camera operations. We shoot on mostly Sony Cameras so knowledge of those menus and layouts is a plus but not a requirement. Finally, we need someone who is an editing wiz on either Final Cut X or Adobe Premier CC (we use both!). We’d expect strong communication, organizational skills and most importantly, attention to detail.

As a small business, we take our growth very seriously and want to make sure our foundation and company culture is always solid. To support that growth strategy, this position will start as hourly part-time for the first 3 – 4 months. After the onboarding and warm-up period, it will turn in to a full-time salary position.

Compensation & Benefits:

Compensation is based on experience and proven expertise. Below are some benefits: 

  • 50% paid Medical Insurance (after 6 months)
  • Solid paid vacation (after 6 months)
  • Semi-flexible work schedule with a focus on results not hours
  • Relaxed, casual work environment
  • Occasional travel for shoots or events
  • Paid industry training and continuing education
  • Opportunity to earn commission on new business leads
  • Have a direct impact on business processes and growth strategies
