This photo of Jane was taken in December. Doesn’t she look hopeful? We spent hours planning a video series about soup we planned to publish to Youtube. We woke up early, went to Lindentree Farm, said hi to Moira and Ari (farmers), gathered vegetables, and filmed Ayr chopping, seasoning, blending soup. The kids came home from school, everyone ate soup together. We felt high on our achievement.
Then we looked at the footage. It was good, but it wasn’t great. Angles were off, Ayr should have worn a different shirt, at one point the light changed significantly and the white balance went off. That’s when we thought: it may be time to get a professional.
I sort of studied film in college. A lot of my friends are talented documentary filmmakers. They helped me write the job post and I’m really excited. It’s going to be a part time (3 day/week) salaried role (around $20k/year), totally embedded in the world of Clover, with FREE Clover food and access to our editing studio next to the HUB. Jane and I have been screening folks by phone. It’s been really inspirational talking to the candidates. People are doing great stuff!
We posted the job 2 weeks ago, and narrowed the field to 7 people who will be doing working interviews (meaning making food, sweeping the floors, meeting the team) next week. We can’t wait to meet you all in person!
