  • Be involved in the development of new ideas from the early stages of pre-production, helping with cinematography, timing and edit suggestions.
  • Spend plenty of time doing conceptual thinking, research and development work, and be expected to pitch and develop your own ideas.

What you'll need:

  • A minimum of 3 years’ industry experience, backed by a degree in the field.
  • Proven experience editing material coming from different sources.
  • At least a basic understanding of audio editing, effects and music selection.
