Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) seeks the services of a creative producer to provide audio video content to advance CPB’s priorities in education and journalism, as well as to support public media stations’ work. The producer must be available upon short notice and will often be expected to provide the final product within a few days of receiving the assignment.
CPB anticipates most of the shoots will take place in the Washington, D.C. metro area, although several may be in other locations throughout the United States. The producer will be required to provide a wide range of audio video services at CPB’s request, which may include but are not limited to those described below.
A. produce strictly promotional AV content for CPB supported initiatives and/or public media programming to showcase at system events, national stakeholder meetings and online (such as CPB.org), as well as for use by stations at local stakeholder meetings and events;
B. film CPB sessions at industry events and other meetings for use on CPB.org or potential future use in promotional videos (approximately six one-day shoots per year). Such events include:
o CPB participation at station events;
o CPB-sponsored activities at the PBS Annual Meeting;
o CPB’s participation at the APTS Public Media Summit;
o CPB’s participation at the Public Media Development and Marketing Conference; and
o CPB’s Board of Directors meetings;
C. develop AV content for promotional use by stations and on CPB’s website;
D. film interviews and brief testimonials ranging from 30 seconds to 5 minutes in length. The testimonials may include CPB senior executives, public media talent, or key stakeholders in public media; and
E. edit existing AV and digital content.
The producer will be compensated on an hourly basis and the contract will extend for a term of three years. At the expiration, CPB will have, in its sole discretion, the right to renew the agreement for two additional one-year terms. CPB estimates approximately 800 hours per year for audio video services and anticipates needing a comparable amount each year during the contract term.
Examples of content CPB has previously contracted may be found at CPB.org as part of CPB initiatives including American Graduate and Veterans Coming Home.
