- A day’s tasks may include finding a fixer who speaks Bengali in Calcutta, securing permits in LA and developing schedules for talent on commercial shoots.
- Must work at a fast pace and be able to handle multiple projects at once.
- Hands-on experience with DIT and organizing footage is a must.
- The ability to give clear and detailed direction across the production team is a must, as is the need to develop a strong relationship with the post-production coordinator.

- While the production coordinator won’t be tasked to shoot or edit full segments, basic Adobe Premiere and camera operation skills are a plus (but not required).
