These are some of the opportunities you'll be delivering in this role.

The Photo & AV Studio team has the enviable position of straddling two worlds in the entertainment industry: the making of TV/film and global visual communication strategy.. At its heart, Photo & AV Studio is all about telling stories. We specialise in capturing and creating editorially-driven photo and video assets from the productions of the series, films and documentaries that shape, enhance and support the visual identity of publicity campaigns for our Netflix content.
