Seeking an individual who will support our clients’ Creative Content Managers on the AV Studio team (specifically for US/CANADA markets).

Being a passionate and excited storyteller, being hyper organized, and being collaborative are critical to the success of this position.

This person is someone who has the ambition of being a producer and/or editor and can multitask well. Someone who is able to juggle multiple tasks and prioritize effectively against deadlines in a high volume environment with grace and patience.

At their core, they understand project management and have an appreciation for and a passion for creativity, and most importantly for FILM. They enjoy logistics, planning, and creation relatively equally - they are excited by all aspects of the job, not just the shiny fun/glamorous parts.

understanding the basics of production gear.


This person has 3 - 4 years experience working across TV or Films in a marketing, publicity creative or production capacity.
