Beam Aboard!

Much like Community Theatre, Priority One is a weekly production that is entirely produced by a team of volunteers! Not a single member of the team earns an income for their contributions. We’re seeking volunteers from diverse backgrounds and with various points of view to fill several positions. BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and Non-Binary Community Members are encouraged to apply!

#IDIC

What inspires us all each week is the fun we have producing a podcast in the Star Trek Multiverse. Each of us contributes our talents and time because this is a labor of love! We’re all passionate Trekkies that love the franchise and love contributing to the Star Trek Community!

Please, consider joining the team and helping us carve our own little corner of the Star Trek Multiverse — in podcast form!

Live Long & Podcast!

Audio Editors

Priority One Podcast always welcomes talented audio editors to help produce the quality content listeners have come to expect each week.

After each episode is recorded, Audio Editors (AE) are assigned one of our core segments to manage that week. AEs will then sync the tracks provided by the hosts and begin the process of editing the segment for final publication.

Editing includes:

  • Syncing the hosts’ tracks
  • Editing for retakes/rereads
  • Remove silence, breaths, and filler sounds/phrases/words (like “ums” & “ahs”)
  • Cleaning up stutters/stammers
  • Enhancing the audio experience with sound effects or other embellishments

The core of each segment is scripted. Therefore, AEs are encouraged to follow along with the script to help guide them through the editing process.

In their raw format, a typical segment is no less than 3min and no longer than 30min. Therefore, the weekly commitment may vary but should not exceed more than 5 hours each week. Please note, that recording lengths can vary with some interviews and/or special event coverage.

Experience working with Adobe Products is welcomed by not required. More importantly, we encourage creativity and experimentation! We’re making theatre of the mind!!!!

Video Editors

Priority One welcome talented Video Editors to help supplement our weekly audio production. Projects may include short-format recaps like our “Captain’s VLOG,” cleaning up our weekly livestreams, or helping us with special projects like convention recaps.

Video Editing includes:

  • Manipulate and edit film pieces in a way that is invisible to the audience
  • Trim footage segments and put together the sequence of the film
  • Input music, dialogues, graphics and effects
  • Create rough and final cuts
  • Ensure logical sequencing and smooth running
  • Continuously discover and implement new editing technologies and industry’s best practices to maximize efficiency.

We’re looking to fill several of these positions to help manage the workload — much like we do with our team of Audio Editors.

Experience working with Adobe Products is welcomed by not required. More importantly, we encourage creativity and experimentation!


Graphic Artists

The Priority One Podcast Graphic Artist helps establish the branding of the production, managing many artistic assets for the organization. They combine art and technology to communicate ideas through social media images, assets for priorityonepodcast.com, and printed pages.

Their core responsibility is providing visual content on behalf of Priority One Podcast to the coolest community of Star Trek gamers, podcasters, and bloggers on the planet.

This highly creative candidate is responsible for the visual representation of Priority One Podcast on websites, marketing materials, advertising assets, and other visual forms of content. The Graphic Artist reports directly to the Executive Producer and will be expected to keep them informed of all artistic projects pertaining to Priority One Podcast.

While every day as an Graphic Artist is different, this is what the key responsibilities may include:

  • Branding – the Graphic Artist will collaborate with the Executive Producer on creating logos, print materials, and web advertising representing Priority One Podcast
  • Creative Content – Creating new and exciting visual content for visitors including – but not limited to – featured images, social media art, original art for new blogs, original art for podcast episodes, and any other visually creative content
  • Website Development – Collaborate with the Executive Producer and Web Producer in creating visual assets for the Priority One Podcast website.

In part, the Priority One Podcast Graphic Artist should be an enthusiastic team member and proactive about the visual content on the site. They should feel free to take it upon themselves to use their creative talents to help improve the overall look and feel of the show. They are welcomed to feel invested in their projects in the same way hosts are invested in the audio podcast. The audio-podcast audience will be the Graphic Artist’s audience.
