Freelance Videographer Needed for Nationals Opening Day at The Bullpen: Tuesday, April 5th from 9am to 7pm (ish)

About the Job: We are looking for someone who would be interested in filming The Bullpen throughout the Nationals’ Opening Day festivities on Tuesday, April 5th. The Bullpen is a large outdoor venue located in Navy Yard, right across the street from Nationals Park. This would be an awesome opportunity for a film/videography student looking to build their portfolio either for a class project or professional development for post-graduate job prep.

What we’re envisioning: We’d like to have shots of people having fun before/during/after the Nats game, the bands playing live music, bartenders serving drinks, people ordering and enjoying food from the hot dog stands and food trucks at the venue, and shots of people hosting private events up on our new roof decks. We want this video to be fun, exciting, laid-back, and generally showcase The Bullpen as THE number one place to be before, during, and after Nationals home games. Here is a link to a video that Famous DC filmed during Opening Day last year- we really liked this overall vibe but would love to go with something a bit more exciting, that showcases the space more, and definitely gets people pumped up about partying before Nats baseball at the closest venue to Nats Park. Here’s the link:

Who we’re looking for: We’re looking for someone who has experience in, or is trying to build experience in, video editing, creating marketing videos- both one-minute videos for Instagram and Facebook but also longer videos for YouTube, etc. The ideal candidate would be available beginning around 9am through about 7pm (possibly later) on Tuesday, April 5th at The Bullpen, located 1201 Half Street, SE- right across from Nationals Park. The ideal candidate will also have a relatively quick turnaround time on the final product, preferably no more than 2-3 weeks’ time if possible. 

How to Apply: If you think you’d be a good fit for this job, please send your pay rate and resume, along with any sample videos you’ve done in the past, to our Communications Director, Liz Bogie- her email is No phone calls or drop-ins will be considered.
