We are looking for a freelance Production Co-ordinator to plan and co-ordinate video & stills shoots.
This is an opportunity for a Production Co-ordinator to become a Producer. If you love the excitement of a shoot, if you thrive on taking charge, keeping things in order and making sure everyone is happy, then this is for you!
You will oversee and co-ordinate everything associated with shoots. You will be involved in the conceptualisation process of every shoot and be responsible for turning those concepts into a reality: you will be choosing the best locations, selecting the most appropriate models, finding the perfect wardrobe + props and doing anything else needed to make the shoot a success. Your resourcefulness to make things happen, an uplifting spirit in all circumstances and the ability to take control are essential to the final output of the shoot.
The job does also come with some administrative tasks, preparing the studio for shoots etc.
We need you to have great negotiating skills, be organised and logical, be able to find creative solutions to whatever problems comes your way, be eager to make stuff happen and happy to work alone or in a small team.
We’d prefer if you do have film/shoot shoot experience (in a producing/planning role)
Interviews will be held on 19th and 20th June. Shortlisted applicants will be given a small project to complete by the 25th June. You will be given a brief of 2 different proposed shoot ideas, 1 in studio and 1 on location. You will need to put a plan of action together, something that shows us how you would tackle the task of organising the shoots.
The successful candidate will be asked to work with us on a trial basis for 2 months (15 days per month), thereafter we can commit to a contract of 15 days per month minimum (20 days maximum) until March 2015. You will need to work some weekends.
Pay is £100/day
