Posted 11-07-2014, wanted

Affixxius Films is looking for a Lighting Camera Operator to join their rapidly-growing team in what will be a vital and exciting production role. Candidates must have film/video production experience and must be committed to the production of creative, effective commercial film material for clients of all types. The successful candidate will be technically adept, have a positive and ambitious attitude and share in our desire to improve. Their production HQ is in Loughborough, in the East Midlands, and this will be a full-time, permanent position.

Working both in the Academic and Commercial arms of the company, the ideal candidate will be adaptable and able to maintain high standards whilst working across a variety of sectors and subject matter.

Day to day duties are varied, but will include the following:

Setting up multi-camera interviews
Gathering B-roll with the use of grip equipment
Engaging directly with customers on shoot
Processing footage prior to edits
Arranging the booking of equipment for up and coming shoots
Maintaining in-house equipment
Planing and implementing lighting set-ups

A strong grasp of the production process is essential and the ability to work with a variety of cameras, lighting and grip equipment and basic sound gear is required. Applicants should be able to work well in a team or independently. The ideal candidate will be able to set-up and light interviews and scenes quickly whilst maintaining a high polished look. Any experience gained in corporate and educational video is advantageous but not mandatory.

Applicants should be aware that this role involves a great deal of travel nationally and on occasion there may be international travel required. The ideal candidate will also be required to drive a company-provided van, therefore a good driving competency and clean license is required.

Starting salary will be between £16,000 and £18,500 per annum (depending on experience and quality of applicant, at the company's discretion), to be reviewed regularly. This salary range will not be negotiated and candidates are obligated to be aware of the salary range when applying for the position. On satisfactory completion of an initial twelve-month period, a rise in salary may be offered.

Please note that on offering the position to the successful candidate, the company reserves the right to place them on a fully-paid four-week trial to ensure that the personality and competence ‘fit’ with Affixxius Films is correct.
