Can you edit, present and do research? Do you also enjoy explaining the news? Then we’re looking for you, because NU.nl is looking for a full-time editor who wants to make explainer videos.
As an explainer video maker, you make a video every day in which you provide an explanation or context for the news, so that visitors to NU.nl understand the news even better. You pitch ideas for these videos in the video team’s morning meeting and use the rest of the morning to produce the idea, such as arranging speakers and finding footage. During work you spar with your boss about the content, sources and the presentation or voice-over texts.
You use the afternoon for the online interviews and the final editing, so that the video is finished at the end of the day. So you control the production from start to finish.
What does such a video look like?
Roos, Coco and Bas have already made many of these kinds of videos for NU.nl. These examples give you a good impression of the productions you are allowed to make.
