As a film or video editor for LIIIV33 you'll be responsible for filming and assembling the recorded raw material into a finished product that's suitable for viewing. The material may include camera footage, dialogue, sound effects, graphics and special effects. This is a very important role in the post-production process and your skills can determine the quality and delivery of the final product. You'll usually work closely with Artist Christopher LeMark to achieve the desired end result. We are looking for someone who is a creative mind, open, loyal and punctual and one who has a voice unafraid to express his or her creative expression.

As a film director you may work on a variety of productions including the following:
Short films
music videos
Product commercials
Document rehearsals
Concert experiences

Working hours
It's likely you'll be able to do standard office hours but it will vary depending on the production. You may have to do some shift work if editing studios are booked at night. When there are deadlines to meet, long hours and overtime may be required.

What to expect:
You will have to always work within deadlines as it is crucial for us to put out quality content in a timely manner as we're creating and sending media across the country for exposure. You will spend a lot of time filming, editing and partake in phone or face to face meetings. We have a lot of treatments done so you'll always be fully prepped before any work begins.


Your work as an editor will involve:
receiving a brief, and maybe an outline of footage and/or a shot list, script, or screenplay;
assembling all raw footage, with camera shots either recorded or transferred onto video tape in preparation for inputting into the computer; inputting uncut rushes and sound, and synchronizing and storing them into files on the computer; digitally cutting the files to put together the sequence of the film and deciding what is usable;
creating a 'rough cut' (or assembly edit) of the program/film and determining the exact cutting for the next and final stages; reordering and tweaking the content to ensure the logical sequencing and smooth running of the film/video.


You must have your own laptop, high quality camera for filming and photography, cell phone, means of transportation or can easily get around town. You must be open to travel as well but keep in mind these things will be communicated accordingly.
