VICE x Team
The role of the post production team is to support the production of news and documentary series including our flagship series Vice (Showtime) and Vice News Tonight, and other programs for broadcast on Vice's own channel, Vice on TV, or distributed internationally for Vice World News. The team is responsible for providing and managing all post production resources - including editors, assistant editors, archival, color and mix - for the successful delivery of broadcast and digital content on time and to the required specifications. We work in a fast paced environment and value excellent organizational skills, as well as the ability to adapt to the challenges of changing circumstances. We are a passionate team which strives to foster an environment that values creativity and collaborative working.
The Scope of Assignment x You
The freelance Post Production Supervisor role is required to work in conjunction with the Senior Post Supervisors with the key responsibilities being to manage and schedule editors and assistant editors on a day-to-day basis, as well as work with the ingest, graphics and archival team leads to assign appropriate resources. This involves directing and managing the team to build and maintain edit schedules and ensure projects are on track for daily delivery and are up to network standards. In addition, you will be required to review planning calendars with production teams to prioritize post-production needs, and maintain open communication with remote teams as needed. Key will be managing and supervising a workflow using Adobe Premiere, ensuring that each production stage is completed successfully. It may also be necessary to identify and hire freelance team members as needed.
You have these:
• Proven track record leading a post production team
• Experience with broadcast television deliverables
• Fluency in Adobe video production workflows
• Experience managing editors and providing technical support
• Experience with edit workflows under tight deadlines
• Established communication and organizational skills
We'd love if you also had these:
• Ability to solve problems quickly and think strategically
• Established connections with freelance talent
• Experience working within a union or Cast & Crew environment
We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they're here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn't invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you've got.
