Huge Public Relations and International Communications agency with offices in more than 40 countries and 300+ staff.
You will work as part of a BROAD creative team comprised of Copywriters, Designers, 2D & 3D Animators, Producers, and a full Post Production Team.
In this role you will be strategically helping an artistic vision come to life, from concepting and brainstorming the idea all the way through crafting and executing it. You will direct videographers, DOPs, editors, animators, designers, and photographers to develop the work, overseeing the project from inception to completion.
From the initial brief, you condense a client problem by providing a creative solution, understanding the issue that the brief is trying to solve, and being able to present different creative options that answer the brief and are deliverable on budget and in time. Once a route is agreed on, you will create a treatment that contains a storyboard, narrative and is brimming with visual references and techniques. Throughout, you collaborate with the Producer / Project Manager to determine how the film / photography will be shot; location, styling, cast, design, etc.
You will brief the editor / photographer, making decisions and directing, and present the edit / images to the client, continually listening to feedback, pushing back gently when required, and making amends. The ability to take criticism is vital, whether this criticism is coming from the client or your own internal team.
You’ll be involved throughout the project up to its completion, acting as an overseer to the other designers and editors – you are responsible for ensuring all work is of a high quality and in keeping with the client’s vision, constantly communicating with people, and providing clear direction.
Have strong management skills to lead a team, be able to communicate visual ideas and be able to work as part of a team.
Always present ideas and treatments that are able to be delivered on budget and to hit the client’s deadline.
Solid understanding of production. Able to understand what is going to be achievable further down the line and how this is possible.
Work to a schedule and budget, be able to prioritise, and remain calm under pressure.
Throughout the process, you remain commercially aware and are accountable for helping to make sure everyone stays on budget and on schedule.
Push yourself. Try new approaches and be up on trends in film, photography, design, and art direction.
Make sure you think about all aspects of content creation – imagery, tonality, pace, messaging,
Able to work under pressure and under deadlines, with strong follow-through abilities
Solid communication skills
Ability to work cohesively as part of a team
Flexible and helpful
Able to multi-task
