Roles & Responsibilities
Commercial bidding, teeing up jobs for production, occasional line producing, and overseeing production teams on multiple projects at once and ensuring they’re delivered on time and on budget.
Ability to be in the weeds of production (budgeting and line producing), capable of communicating with freelance production teams, guiding and improving the creative product, and also fostering deep client relationships.
Work on multiple projects at once that are at various stages from creative/production/post rather than just going from set to set.
Experience bidding and producing Non-Union jobs, and either experience producing union jobs or a desire to learn how to bid and/or produce them occasionally.
Equally comfortable producing a more robust $500K+ job as you are getting scrappy on a $40K quick shoot.

Strong crew relationships and genuine interest in our industry and the people who help make it all work.

Competent in all areas of commercial production with deep understanding of agency, brand and production company dynamics with a strong track record of producing quality content in both NYC and LA.
