The candidate will have a keen interest in colour grading, editorial work, post workflow and scripting/automation, and be able to demonstrate experience working in a high end finishing environment.

Depending on the phase of the project you may be doing anything from transcoding, archiving, loading/breaking down footage, EDL prep, file compressions/postings, to animating supers/titles, QC of masters, pre-colour work and more. The key responsibility is supporting the colourists and artists and prepping their projects to allow them to focus on creativity.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Quality Checking of Masters and Master Files, so a knowledge of film delivery and broadcast standards is preferred. This checking is not just technical assessment but is also subjective assessment; looking for image artefacts that may not have been picked up in the final checks of a master by the Colourist or Flame artist.
  • To show a full understanding of tapeless workflows from camera to final delivery.
  • Must be familiar with digitizing, transcoding, logging, syncing and grouping
  • Must have experience with EDL's, OMF/AAF's, various quicktime codecs, etc and have a working knowledge of frame rates, formats, and codecs
