Journeyman Film Company helps people, organizations and companies to build their story through creative visual content. We make short films and commercials that are authentic, beautiful and influential. Working with a wide range of clients both large and small, we play an important role as builders of the community and the economy!
We’re looking for full time producers to join our teams, east and west. We want to hire proven talent with 5 + years of director/producer/writer experience; in fact, we want to hire the best talent available to us, so that together, we build a leading company in Canada, and beyond.
What you offer:
You can create poetry in the most industrial setting. You direct great performances from ordinary people. And you have a sense of visual storytelling. Most importantly, you can demonstrate a cross section of sample projects for a range of clients similar to ours, and your work is even better! You have reel samples that show you are exploring new trends and breaking conventions in client films.
Storytelling is your game and you want to be part of its evolution in client work. You thrive in a culture of challenge where you push yourself, colleagues and clients to think differently. You are equally comfortable creating a 30 second spot or a 15 minute mini-doc.
You’re more interested in story, craft, and creative approaches, than in the latest technology. You see the possibility to add value with a great idea, even if technical budgets are limited. And you can work with budgets, schedules and deadlines.
It’s an added bonus — but not essential — if you have additional hands-on production skills in shooting or editing. But your main talent is understanding and caring about what clients need, then generating creative ideas and making projects come to life by working with the necessary creative crew.
You have likely traveled a bit, maybe speak another language (French is a plus) and are empathetic and open-minded, and can relate to diverse folks in our world.
What we offer:
We’re looking to hire two people. We are building a team based in Vancouver for a large client project out west. And we continue to build our team based in Halifax.
We offer you the opportunity to work on diverse project challenges. We offer the chance to play a big role in a small company. We offer a flexible and friendly work environment that values work-life balance.
The production industry (typically in TV/film) is notorious for feast and famine cycles, where creative teams come together for intensive work, then disband when the project is over. Journeyman is different. We’re building a company that grows sustainably for the long term.
This is a full time position. Salary will be negotiated based on experience and city location, in the range of $60,000 to $85,000 per year. The company also currently has an employee incentive profit sharing program in place for which you would be eligible. We can offer you a complete health and insurance benefits package through the Chamber of Commerce Group Benefits Plan.
We’re keen to fill this position as soon as possible, ideally between now and May 2014.
Please send us a letter that demonstrates how you think outside the box, and a resume with links to your work, and any questions, to email@example.com. We sincerely thank anyone who takes an interest in our company, but only those applicants to be interviewed will be contacted.
