We're looking for a cinematographer & video/film editor to take over his/her position in our production organization. If you have experience of the very latest technology, it may reduce the competition you face. General computer literacy and an aptitude for working with digital equipment to achieve results are also important. You'll be expected to have pre-entry experience and will need to show evidence of having worked on film or video production or post-production, preferably via an up-to-date and well prepared showreel.
You will work alongside directors to give films and music videos their own unique aesthetic style. Responsible for managing camera crews and lighting crews, you oversee the selection and manipulation of technical equipment to create striking images on screen. You will be planning the technical execution of each shot. You'll also figure out what equipment and staff will be required. You are then responsible for handling the procurement of equipment and the recruitment of camera operators, gaffers, grips and other technical production specialists. Throughout this process, you need to be mindful of budget restrictions and time constraints. You'll be responsible for assembling recorded raw material into a finished product that's suitable for broadcasting. The material may include camera footage, dialogue, sound effects, graphics and special effects. This is a key role in the post-production process and your skills can determine the quality and delivery of the final product. You'll usually work closely with the director to achieve the desired end result. Digital technology, specialist computer software and high-quality digitization of sound and pictures have effectively replaced the traditional manual method of cutting film. In some instances you may be given creative freedom, while in others you'll just be required to operate the necessary machines.
