Is it time to start a two person media production team?

In this age where activated events are so easily reported on social media, there is an increasing need for companies big and small to be able to share really good content with their fans, followers, and prospects.  Rolling Thunder Review is looking to help a small team (two people to start) build their own media production company.  

We have instant work available.

We don’t want to hire an existing media company to capture our activations.  Why?

  1.  Many of our projects are just getting off the ground (ie, we are bootstrapping).
  2.  We love supporting college students (resume building, career building).
  3.  We believe (and have been proven) that college students are often more creative and capable than they may realize.
  4.  This is potentially a lot of fun.

So, here’s what we need.  TODAY.

  1.  Someone with really good video skills.  And this person has some decent equipment.
  2.  Someone with really good video editing skills.  Editing, compiling, capturing a story.  Extracting still shots from video, etc.
  3.  Their enthusiasm to work closely together, possibly starting their own media production company. 
  4.  A cool company name, logo, and mission statement (we will help you with this).

These two people will produce awesome content, and present it to our marketing team as well as our product innovators and brand developers.

A little editing by a budding college student can go a long way towards producing a compelling 30 second shareable video via many media channels and outlets in the marketplace (without using terms like robust or optimize or disrupt).

HELP WANTED:  IOS/Android App and WordPress Web Developer.

Looking front end and back end web/app developer for a user-facing budgeting and savings tool.  The tool involves a basic calculator function, similar to a mortgage calculator app/website, such as:

Successful completion of the app will include certification and release to the Apple and Google App Stores.  Qualified candidate will have knowledge of multiple code languages and technologies. Experience with social network account creation APIs a plus but not required.

The second element to the project is to be able to have user registration and tracking, with login, such as:

The purpose of the project is to service anybody with a “DIY Ethos”, people who may do their own repairs or home improvements, by helping and encouraging them keep a log of their projects and “reward” themselves for saving money.  

“Minimum Variable Product” for the project is here:


I have worked for a Fortune 500 company for 18 years.  On the side, I am founder and key contributor to, the go to site for information about authentic sauna.  I also build authentic Finnish saunas. I wrote a book on how to build a sauna, which has sold several thousand copies. I have helped several hundred people build their own sauna.  I have over 3,000 email addresses of like minded DIY enthusiasts who will represent a good target representation for this product.

I enjoy doing a lot of my own home maintenance and improvements but never treat myself for saving money vs. hiring. This project keeps track of my DIY projects and gives me permission to treat myself once and awhile.  

Ideal candidate will have their hand in a project that will go to market.  In addition to this resume builder, with successful deliverables, I will be a solid reference for candidate as they pursue their career objective.  We can arrange for a fair “pay for project rate” or hourly based on deliverables, whichever works best.
