Description

SCAD seeks a creative, adaptable and resourceful filmmaker/producer to lead and manage video projects from start to finish. The filmmaker/producer is responsible for lighting and shooting a diverse range of high-quality video content; maintaining video, lighting, and audio equipment; and naming, transferring, and storing media. This employee will be responsible for working in the field and in studio productions, both as an individual and as a member of the visual media team.
Delivering world-class creative is what we do. Our award-winning, in-house agency leads the charge in creating smart, engaging content that embodies the SCAD lifestyle and personality — and allows SCAD to continue producing the most creative students on the planet. SCAD transcends traditional university culture with innovative academic programs, museums, film festivals, fashion shows and signature events that cultivate creativity beyond the classroom. If you’re passionate about creative, collaborative by nature, and up for the challenge to bring something special into the mix, then let’s talk.
This role entails managing freelancers, working closely with videographers, editors, media managers, graphics, communications manager and other department team leaders, and producing high-quality videos.
The ideal candidate has management experience and a firm sense of what’s widely shared on online video and social platforms, as well as a deep knowledge and passion of internet social trends with an excellent creative eye and communication skills. Videography, audio, media management and editing knowledge is a must.
