Static Media is looking for a few enthusiastic, detail-oriented freelance Script Editors to join our team. Script editing is the process of translating our published articles into the videos that are published across our many YouTube channels. The Script Editor creates a detailed document that's essentially a roadmap for our talented video editors to follow.
Topics range from movies and pop culture, to women's lifestyle, celeb gossip, weird scientific discoveries, and the best hot dogs you can buy. We do a little bit of everything.
