  • Degree in film, performing arts or photography is a plus

  • Permanent, Full-time

We are looking for a visually creative decision-maker and team-player with strong expertise in camera work and lighting.

A Red Bull Cinematographer is responsible for supporting producers and creatives to frame their stories in an outstanding way. You work as a service provider alongside various teams and help determine narrative elements through visual style to meet the goals of any Red Bull project. When you are brought onboard a project where concept is just a thought, you support with your expertise, creative input, and the right additional crew choices to make an idea come true. In Pre-Production you bring your own ideas of visual storytelling to the table and execute an agreed shooting plan in collaboration with involved production departments. When not committed to a client’s project within Red Bull, you help our department of Equipment Rental Services with research, technical comparisons, and recommendations to keep our equipment portfolio relevant and attractive.

Areas that play to your strengths

All the responsibilities we'll trust you with:

Creativity and Feasibility

You are taking over a central role in pre-production of our moving images content. Your goal is to execute ideas despite any boundaries with a creative vision to create outstanding footage. At the same time, you are the one staying down to earth. You are translating ideas into requirements like crew size, timings and the right gear from the beginning on.

You are aware of advantages and limitations of production equipment on-set and in post-production workflows. This enables you to choose the most suitable resources based on a project’s setting.

Communication and Contracting

Communication and organization is mandatory for such a key role in a moving images production. You align with Producers and Communication Managers from the beginning on, manage expectations and keep all relevant participants on the same page.

In many cases you are the link between creatives, budget owners and technical staff.

You are in constant touch with our department’s Equipment Specialists to lock down a detailed equipment list to assure proper quotes and further processing like customs clearance or transport. The goal is to give your production the best starting conditions as early as possible.

You are also able to communicate and argue the needs of external crew for a desired result. You connect the right internal and external people and you lay the foundation for a fast booking process with a strong network of experts


You are an open-minded creative with a hands-on mentality. Handling equipment and managing data can be on your task list and you don’t shy away from that. The natural conditions of sports and outdoor-heavy productions where a second try might not be an option will set expectations of capturing the action on point.

Due to the diversity of Red Bull productions it will not always be a big team’s effort. Sometimes you will be out there as a single shooter where your flexibility and reliability brings a project to life. You are not limiting your executional skills by stereotype setups: Our vast equipment portfolio is manufacturer-agnostic and targeting the right output in a most efficient way. You are experienced with the most relevant camera systems, accessories and lenses in S35 and FF.

Research and Testing

As a part of the team of Equipment Rental Services you take responsibility for gear not only per production. With your input, we are constantly driving our equipment portfolio to serve as many different stakeholders as possible within the World of Red Bull.

You set up and maintain test processes for cameras, lenses, lights and accessories which provide technical know-how to all relevant departments within Red Bull through comparable footage and documentation.

Your areas of knowledge and expertise

  • Degree in film, performing arts or photography is a plus
  • 5+ years experience as Camera Operator
  • Experience in outdoor sports productions
  • Experience with highspeed cameras (Phantom Flex 4K) is a plus
  • Experience with multi-axis gimbal systems (Shot Over F1) is a plus
  • Experience with camera drones is a plus
  • Creative visual thinking
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills
  • Attention to detail, analytical mind and problem-solving attitude
