We are hiring a Video Editor!

Native Films is a full-service video production studio based in Salt Lake City, UT, specializing in commercial and documentary content for brands in the outdoor/apparel industry. On the surface we create beautiful and compelling videos for our clients. Beneath the surface we tell stories that change people.

Ben Knight once told me that the video always comes together in the edit. No matter how much planning is done, the Editor is the single mind at the end of the line who truly tells the story. The Editor’s vital role in the storytelling process directly affects our brand, portfolio, and the trust of our clients.
