Role responsibilities

Your Role

When a Higher Education video or animation project is converted by our Client Services team it gets passed over to you. From this point onwards you will have full contact with the project right up to the point where the assets are delivered to the client.

You will start by assigning a Producer to the project and finalising (you will often have produced the Gantt chart for the Client Services team as part of their quoting process) the Gantt chart. You will work with our Studio Manager to book the correct internal team member resource for the project and you will book freelancers when required for location work.

Once resource is allocated you will liaise with the client and book suitable dates for the Producer to attend the Discovery (kick-off) meeting and the shoot. You will create the project schedule and call sheet; book the hotels and transport and co-ordinate pre-project calls between the client, the Producer and yourself.

After the video has been shot, you will support the Producer during the post-production phase and often work with the Studio Manager and the Editor, to clarify various elements of the video edit. For the right candidate there will be opportunity to offer creative input, when experience suggests this will add value to the project.

During the pre and post production stages there will often be project scope changes, you will agree changes with the client (with advice from the Producer) and be able to use our system to log how such scope changes effect the budget, this ensures all scope changes are in one place ready for when you create the final invoice.

You will then deliver version 1 of the video to the client and help to collate feedback. You will liaise with the Producer, Editor and/or Motion Designer on amendments – working closely with the Studio Manager along the way when resources time-frames need adjusting.

Once the 2nd and 3rd rounds of feedback and amends are complete, you will deliver the final video to the client along with the invoice and inform Client Services that the client is now ready for the post-project debrief. Project finished!
