JOB VACANCY - Video Assistant Internship

Featured Monday, 02 November 2015 18:52

We are hiring. If you have good AV skills and good customer service skills - we should talk.

 JOB VACANCY

Location - SYDNEY AUSTRALIA

Duration - Summer holiday trial (long term possibility)

If you have training and/or experience working in videography, have an interest in YouTube and would like to get real world experience, this may be for you.

The job brief

I am seeking an assistant to work over the summer holiday period, from mid November until January/February as a start. All things going well, I am looking for someone to continue longer term (part time/ full time negotiable). The role will be mostly in studio, Southern Sydney.

The role will involve helping with video and audio production, editing of videos, customer service and general studio/office duties. 

It is paid - rate of pay negotiable with successful applicant based on experience and number of hours agreed per week (between 2-4 days per week).

I see the role as ideal for a 2nd or 3rd year video production student over summer holiday - but I am open to anyone with the right skills and attitude. We are a fun and creative team who love to have fun whilst we work - but also grind hard to meet deadlines and achieve great results.

You will get experience, access to latest and greatest gear, to work with a fun and motivated team, potential to travel and shoot in different locations and chance for long term employment. We will get a talented, motivated and fun team member to help us reach our 2016 goals. Necessary on the job training provided. We need someone who can think for themselves & problem solve - saving rather than costing us time.

NOTE - This job is not suitable for well-meaning fans, people outside of Sydney or those without suitable experience. I need someone with applicable skills and a great sense of humour.

Below is a brief list of must have and nice to have skills. The most important aspect will be technical skills and personality.

MUST HAVE

- Existing skills in audio and video production. You need to be able to walk on set and be able to get results

- Existing skills in video editing. Preferable on FCPX software - but other software suites possible.

- Willingness to learn and work as part of a team

- Sense of humour

- Motivated to achieve great results individually and part of a team.

- General computer literacy

- Common sense 

 

NICE TO HAVE

- Some experience in customer service - on phone and via email

- Social media saavy

- Experience with Photoshop/Lightroom

- Own transport

If you fit the bill and you would like to apply, please send us a casual 1 page letter explaining what you can bring to the team - your skills, experience and what motivates you about this opportunity. Send it to info at mattgranger dot com. Likewise if you have any questions.
