As part of our busy in-house creative agency we require a strong, confident, fully rounded and fun in-house editor. Key skills are the ability to edit and manipulate motion and stills content to create simple, characterful on-brand and witty content for our social media platforms from gif’s to cinema graphs to short form films and anything in between – the ability to keep up with the social media world’s rapid changes is a must and the wherewithal to adapt. We aren’t just looking for great technical skills we’d love you to be creative and a good conceptualizer too.
Fluent in the following: Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator and 3D work. Ability in motion graphics using After Effects (stop motion & 3d Modelling/Animating).
Comfortable in delivering edited masters from tech specs supplied, that can be re-purposed for the platforms below:
1) HD TV in-store screens (no sound) as Pro res 422 HQ masters & MP4’s (for client internal use).
2) Video and animated gifs for social media - tech specs for Insta stories, Instagram & Facebook feed etc. for example.
All deliverables require, on the whole: landscape & portrait versions, untitled and titled of each edit (i.e. with/without copy) & a variety of cut downs.
Desirable: (but on a nice to have only as likely to be outsourced to our various post house & CGI vendor specialists) to have an ability to:
a) Transcode raw footage (convert raw footage to a less heavy format to be able to use for the offline). We don’t tend to have a DIT on set to convert the files for offline.
b) Grade using Base light for example.
c) Online using Flame for example.
d) QC if possible.
Projects range from:
1) Animating new & existing assets (stills) using stop frame, Parallax or cinema graph & all other new and ever evolving edit techniques.
2) Motion – create edits from new & existing footage to create: cut downs & looped films made up of separate films
An amazing multi-tasker, we want you to be the go-between that connects the creatives with our creative production team being a key, integral team member of Creative Production.
You’ll be the gatekeeper of editing processes & what’s achievable within a realistic time frame, but can also maintain agility on last minute projects within reason. And at the end of a project, ensure that the edits, gif’s, etc. are delivered to creative producers to the agreed timelines & filed appropriately.
