What’s the job like?
It’s Monday morning. You get to the office, get settled, grab a coffee from the Keurig, and open your email. You see some tasks assigned to you by the Creative Director (CD) or Senior Producer (SP). They may have asked you to finish up that edit you’ve been working on, make revisions to an existing video, and/or start writing a new script for a client. Some tasks may take a few hours, others a few days. You go to work.
At some point each day, you check and update the social media calendar, making sure all posts are ready to go live. You also think through what upcoming social media posts are needed and brainstorm the best ways to create them. Maybe you need to drive to a client’s business and snap some pictures or dig through extra footage to find a great clip.
It’s now Wednesday, and it’s a shoot day! That morning, we all meet at the office and load the truck with gear. We travel to our location and spend the morning shooting interviews, then break for lunch. After we eat, we head to another location to shoot some b-roll. After we’ve got all we need, we call it a wrap and head back to the office to drop off the gear. Everyone goes home.
Next morning, you secure yesterday’s footage by uploading it to a harddrive. Then, you return to your regular office tasks, be it editing, social media posts, or screenwriting.
By the end of the week, you have tons of great social posts and you have a completed video and/or script to be reviewed by the whole team before sending to the client for final notes. The client writes back that they LOVE it. We all go out for tacos to celebrate!
What does Oak Film Co. have to offer?
We like to bring a bit of the Silicon Valley worklife to our little corner of the South. From frequent company lunches, to professional development sessions watching the latest movie, we are constantly team-building and having fun between jobs.
Here’s an idea of what the typical perks of being an Oak Film Co. crewmember involve:
Very flexible vacation policy
Free coffee in the office
Frequent team lunches
Free Swag from clients
Okay, sounds kinda cool, but what do you pay…?
Well, like trying to price a video project it depends on a few factors, what’s your experience level, what all do you bring to the table, etc? We will certainly make a fair offer once we meet and see how the fit is for you and the team!
Our ideal candidate would be able to start in short order, but we’re flexible for the right person. If all this sounds up your alley, we’d love to hear from you!
Please email us your resume and cover letter telling us about yourself and why you want to work at Oak Film Co.
We look forward to learning more about you!
