We’re Hiring

Paul Broadie

We’re on the look out for a Camera Operator/Editor to join our team

Job Description

What we’re looking for:

This is an exciting opportunity for a creative and enthusiastic individual with a real passion for the filmmaking process and a head for business, to come in and help the company continue to grow. The role will primarily be split between production (camera operating, camera assisting, sound recording) and post production (editing, grading, motion graphics). But beyond that we want someone who can contribute creatively to our projects; who can work closely with our clients; who can help with the day to day running of the company where required. We work as a team and everyone is given the opportunity to contribute ideas, and to bring their ideas to fruition. For us ability wins out over qualifications every time. If you can show us that you have a real gift for filmmaking and that you’re hardworking and enterprising, then don’t worry about not having the right qualification.

Because we are just emerging from the uncertainty of the Covid pandemic, this post is being offered for an initial 3 month period, with the hope that after that time it would become permanent after that time.
