Deadline: September 1, 2021
We are selecting a pool of young professionals that will help us create 15-30 second video clips of Cincinnati-owned and operated businesses. These videos will be deployed through our interactive videos, designed for consumers to explore their own experience.
We have various creative roles with our Storytelling Team. Each provides an opportunity to pick up gigs based on your availability. Think of it like Uber. We are arranging for the video production of small businesses all over Cincinnati.
This may be the perfect fit to make income using your creative skills.
If you’re good with a camera, in front of a camera or can edit film in post-production, this could be a good fit for you. This Storytelling Team opportunity is perfect for college students wanting real world experience to build their portfolio.
Keep It Cincy is based around the idea of supporting local small businesses so that they may thrive in their own communities by shopping and buying local. Think of it as buying from your neighbors instead of from an Amazon warehouse. Every neighborhood has hundreds of local businesses operating from storefronts and out of homes and each day, everyone has the choice to buy local to create more prosperity and growth in Cincinnati neighborhoods.

Keep It Cincy makes it easier to find and buy from Cincinnati-owned and operated businesses. How are we doing it? We create interactive videos to conveniently explore Cincinnati-owned businesses. This digital experience encourages people to visit, buy and enjoy local.
Our Interactive Videos are curated combinations of the 15-30 second video clips. Each digital experience is built with a specific kind of consumer in mind whether it’s a young couple looking for an interesting new date night or someone visiting from out of town wanting to experience the unique neighborhoods of Cincinnati.
We have a growing list of video clips of all varieties. Some of these will go beyond the Mom & Pop shops and highlight the culture of Cincinnati.
We are looking for 3 Storytelling roles to help create our video clips for the small businesses. If you have the capability and skills to fit more than one role…WONDERFUL. Our gig-based arrangement in making these videos allows Storytellers to fill in where needed and build teams.
Cincinnati is home to some of the most unique neighborhoods in the area.
Okay, we might be a little biased, but we love and believe in our local communities here. The foundation of the Cincinnati-based startup, Keep It Cincy, is centered around exactly what the name conveys. In a world where big tech companies rule the “convenience” factor for shoppers and the food industry, Keep It Cincy wants to keep dollars local to help each individual neighborhood thrive through the support of its own residents and neighbors.
Unlike other businesses that have that cliche “lightbulb moment,” the idea of Keep It Cincy has been around forever and was actually created by its own residents that have a passion for buying local, but what it lacked was awareness. In the age of 2-day delivery and near-immediate food delivery, we saw that while people might want to shop and buy local, the convenience of what big tech companies provide you with is hard to pass up when in a pinch.
To provide a solution to this problem, Keep It Cincy is driven to become your “tour guide,” one might say, for buying and shopping local. By incorporating current trends like vertical video, and more interactive elements to display the voice and ideas of the local shops, the viewer is provided with a unique experience learning about their local community of businesses. From flower arrangements to restaurants and even home renovations, Keep It Cincy has you covered. The best part is that everyone behind the scenes of Keep It Cincy are all local Cincinnatians as well. From the photographers, designers, video editors, social media team, and of course, the business owners themselves, everyone is working together to grow their communities and ultimately, Keep It Cincy.
As mentioned above, we are choosing a select group of creatives for our first cohort of Storytellers. Please submit the form below. DEADLINE: September 1, 2021. Note, we would like to see a link to your portfolio; website, tiktok, youtube, or instagram.
We will be inviting everyone selected to our group interview on September 15, 2021. You will receive notice either way by September 8, 2021 if you are moving on to the group interview the following week.
Final note: You must reside in Cincinnati Metro…gotta Keep It Cincy!
