Job Description

Is editing your first love, but you feel like you can accomplish more with a team? Are you able to take it to the next level in the edit bay, using your honed talents to sweeten sound, mix music, stylize with color and layer in motion graphics?  Are you capable of developing ideas with peers to elevate their work?  Can you also provide creative leadership for shoots/script writing and ideation?  Are you familiar with all aspects of commercial production - shooting, producing, directing, being grip, capturing audio or even running live video - whatever may be needed for the day? Do you relish the idea of not having to worry about budgeting, sales and self-promotion? Are you in your element speaking to clients, pitching concepts and coordinating a project through to completion when needed?
