Las Vegas Review-Journal Features Scott Whitney in Article About Podcasts

LVRJ-ScottPhoto-160110

We were excited to see Michael Lyle’s Las Vegas Review-Journal article, “Spreading the news and views – Podcasts offer another medium for telling people about Las Vegas”, on the front page of this past Sunday’s LIFE section (1/10/16).

The article opened with a story about Scott Whitney’s 2005 Halloween costume – he dressed as a “podcast” – and continued with quite a bit of information about the Living in Las Vegas podcast, along with several other podcasts about Las Vegas (Downtown Podcast, Five Hundy by Midnight, and Vegas Fanboy).

Here’s a link to a PDF of the article (it’s not up on the lvrj.com website at the moment.)

Just got the link to the RJ Article.

We’re Hiring: Production/Studio Manager

PodWorx, Inc., is an online broadcasting company that specializes in podcasts, web tv, and live streaming video productions. We are Nevada’s most experience live streaming broadcaster and podcast production company.

The company, along with our two other businesses, the Vegas Video Network & Vegas Video Co-op, are growing. As a result, we’ve created an opening for a part-time, PAID, Production/Studio Manager. We believe this position will eventually be moved to a full-time position.

JOB DESCRIPTION: PRODUCTION/STUDIO MANAGER
We’re looking for a unique individual who wants to roll up their sleeves, work hard, and get deep into the inner workings of what is arguably the next step in broadcasting and video production.

If you’ve ever wanted to get in on the ground floor of this exciting new way of reaching a worldwide audience, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.

Sounds interesting? Excellent. You’d be a great candidate if you are personable, well-organized, professional, enthusiastic, and willing to work crazy hours. You should be VERY comfortable around technology — you’ll be helping with. . .

  • pre-production (cameras, lighting, sets, graphics, guest prepping),
  • production (video, audio, cameras, live chat, live streaming),
  • post-production (audio, video, graphics, software, computers, social media, online),
  • field work (audio, video, lights, live streaming)

Naturally, you are a fast learner with an affinity for all things technical, so regardless of the work you’ll be asked to do, you’ll catch on quickly and get the job done. You should have a creative eye and mind, and must write well. As time goes on, you’ll be expected to do everything from writing show notes to being a technical director for any of the VVN shows or VVC video shoots. In other words, we expect the Production/Studio Manager will be able to run all aspects of the studio.

This position will require 16 to 20 hours a week of your time. There will be a mix of morning, afternoon and evening hours. As mentioned previously, we expect this position will become full-time.

If you’re confident you’d be a good fit, let us know. Send an email to jobs @ vegasvideonetwork.com. The subject of your email should be “Job Opening: Studio Manager”. If your email doesn’t have the correct subject, it will be ignored.

Include your resume, tell us about your technical capabilities/experience, and let us know why you’d like to work with our company. You should have a minimum of 7 years of real-word experience in a film and/or video production environment. In your email, provide a link to your previous work. Please describe your level of experience with video production software (NLE, motion graphics, design, etc.) and equipment (cameras, lights, switchers, etc.).

You must have your own transportation and be able to pass a background check. You must live in Las Vegas, as well.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
