RECESS is a traveling Music and Ideas festival on college campuses centered around entrepreneurship. We are a small start up backed by Mark Cuban with the mission of inspiring the next generation of world changing entrepreneurs.

We are looking for a young and ambitious editor who is highly self motivated and loves creative freedom and working on lots of diverse projects. This is not a 'getting coffee' type internship, from day one you will be working as a member of our team as we formulate quality video content.

The office is located right on the Venice boardwalk and we have a very casual office culture. However everyone at RECESS is self motivated to work extremely hard on their projects; being a start up, there is always work to be done. We always collaborate on ideas so being able to voice your opinion is greatly valued.

We have extensive footage from our last tour that needs to be developed into high quality pieces of video content to distribute to our media partners like Inc. Magazine, Mad Decent Records, Virgin Airlines, Good Music All Day, and more. As head editor you would work with our creative team to help direct the projects, and then execute them. Since we have 4 components to our event - a networking carnival, a speaker series, a college Shark Tank, AND a concert - videos are diverse in style and content, leaving open plenty of room for experimentation. You'll be working with concert footage from the likes of Diplo and Calving Harris, as well as speeches and panel discussions with some of the world's foremost entrepreneurs. You will be involved in all aspects of a project, from conception to uploading to our media channels, providing extensive experience.

So if you want to work with a small group of intelligent highly motivated individuals working to make the world a better place, RECESS is for you. We're a small company with potential for growth and this is a chance to get in early. In addition, there may be opportunity to COME ON OUR FALL TOUR across the United States, dates TBD. Need to work 2-3 days a week, with at least 1 day at the office, other two spent editing offsite.

Please email Colin@recess.is only if seriously interested.
