All positions are from 1 October or from as soon as would be possible.
Deadline for applications are 25 Sept 2019.
Video Producer and Director
Are you the person who “gets shoots done”? We’re looking for the leading creative driver for an exciting new series of online videos that we’re shooting. Want to know “like what?”
Think Viceland, Complex and Nowness.
You’ll be responsible for producing and creatively directing all our daily web-series. You’ll be responsible for quality production and outputs as well as the narrative, working with the filmmaker and editorial team. This is a high-paced, high-output position which requires constant problem-solving solutions, but ultimately you get to tell incredible stories and change South Africa’s visual culture understanding.
You’ll be producing our own 10and5 internal series, in addition to working with our branded content clients to deliver treatments and the final work.
Ideally you have experience in production work – you understand how a video goes from treatment/concept all the way through to online/offline editing and final mix. You understand formats intimately. You’re pissed off that most content is shit and want to make better work that truly reflects South Africa’s great creative talent.
Does this sound exciting? If so, apply below for shortlisting or get a full job spec from firstname.lastname@example.org.
The world of TV and content has changed. You need to be able to shoot today, deliver tomorrow morning. You need to be able to create impactful stories with basic tools, but still be able to know your way around high-end cameras.
We’re looking for a lead-cameraman/filmmaker who will work with our producer to shoot our online web-series. You need to be completely comfortable with shooting run-and-gun style, unscripted formats and can jump in to direct if need be. You’re also able to edit if necessary and can quickly put together rough cuts. You hate bad sound and can mic a person up and check levels on your own. Ideally, you have aspirations of a DOP and aesthetics are really important to you. You can set up and shoot in a studio if needed, but you are also entirely comfortable shooting on location if required.
We shoot quick with small teams. You’ll be shooting our semi-scripted web series content and overlap with some branded content for our clients too. Working with the producer and editor, you’ll be able to deliver a video a day.
Sound interesting? Apply below for shortlisting and add your showreel, or mail email@example.com for a full job spec. We also have a 2nd/junior assistant role open. Please indicate if you are interested in this in your cover letter.
Video Editor (Online/Offline)
See what we’re doing? We’re expanding our video team. As video editor, you’ll be responsible for all the storytelling aspects of our video production. You’ll be the one that edits everything together and creates the final packages.
You have to understand storytelling and narrative. You’ll also understand how to deliver under pressure and deliver a regular stream of video content. As much as you can edit offline, you should be able to grade and add titles to bring a product as close to online edit as possible. You’ll have a bank of tools and presets that help you with your workflow in order to deliver work. You’ll be able to edit quick promo’s and create social media video content, but you’ll also be able to deliver longer format (up to 15 mins an edit).
You’ll also work across our branded content as well as the regular web series and be able to time juggle between them.
PLEASE NOTE: NO e-mail applications will be considered. All final applications MUST be done through the online form.
