Production Coordinator for a small, fast-paced video production team that puts out a tremendous amount of content for The Company's brands.
The individual must have extensive video production experience and be able to manage all crew and coordination for simultaneous global productions.
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.
Duties and Responsibilities:
- Work with an internal production team to organize an increasingly complex web of producers, videographers, and other crew members on both commercial-quality and documentary style productions.
- Manage the day-to-day workflow of production logistics for a vast amount of content - everything from 10-second social videos to 30-minute documentaries - with a primary focus on organizing crew and schedules for 1-15 day global productions, and be hands on with building and managing budgets for these productions.
- Be the hub between the in-house production team, producers, and external vendors and collaborators that touch a video during everything through the delivery of the drive.
- Mount productions in the pipeline while building systems and structures to better organize the production process and footage delivery as the Project scales.
- Be the day-to-day point person for all crew needs, and the hub of communication from the office to the field.
- Oversee the management of house gear, and develop a system for gear tracking and distribution.
- 2-3 years experience working as a video producer or associate producer for a brand, network/editorial provider, or agency.
- Production coordination experience
- Experience managing a diverse range of content being shot worldwide.
- Know the nuts and bolts of Sony and Canon gear
- Ability to run 3-5 crews at a time across the globe.
- 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.
- Ability to give clear and detailed direction across the production team
- A 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).
