Permanent, full-time position, starting March.
We seek an individual to join our growing team as a finishing editor, traditionally known as an online editor.
You will become a vital part of our tight-knit team, performing various technical tasks related to our post-production operations across feature films, documentaries, episodic television productions and advertisements.
Ideal candidates will be interested in a long-term position at a burgeoning company, where we will teach you the ins and outs of the obscure and specialised side of post-production finishing.
If you desire to become an Offline Editor, this is not the position for you.
Feedback: We welcome positive and constructive feedback on this job posting. Please share your thoughts directly with our Managing Director, Darius Family, via email@example.com or send an email anonymously.
We run on 8 hour days which includes 1 hour for lunch.
Most of us operate 830am-430pm, though these times are flexible, and the team is free to WFH as they see fit.
A typical day is fast-paced, and priorities can frequently shift as our productions evolve; however, to misuse Newton's Third Law, there is an equal and opposite reaction for every action.
For us, this means; if a client makes a priority request, and we consent to it, then something else in the day's activities needs to be bumped to the following day, which bumps something else and so on. The result is that a deadline must change, or the client must provide further funds to hire additional resources.
Put simply, we don't give people more work and expect them to get it all done in the same amount of time.
A finishing editor is what we consider to be the evolution of the online editor role. In Hollywood, this role is sometimes called a finishing artist. A finishing editor is both a specialist and a generalist.
Your job is to take ownership of the edit after being turned over to us from editorial (Picture lock). You conform the edit into Davinci Resolve and prepare the timeline for grading. You are responsible for adding final graphics, idents, credits and sound mixes. In some instances, you will perform simple VFX work.
You will work with the client to deliver credit rollers and updated graphics packages, subtitles/captions, audio description tracks etc.
And finally, you are responsible for generating the multitude of masters and deliverables.
Ideal candidates will meet some or all of the following:
