  • Responsibilities

    We are a small, female owned production company that has just been granted a fellowship for a year at one of New York City's most prestigious media centers.

    We are looking for a person who can assist the executive producer, juggling multiple projects at a time.

    We are looking for somebody with strong writing skills who can take concepts and develop them alongside the producer, and is interested in project management. This includes writing RFPs, developing advertising pitches, doing research, assisting with correspondence, completing marketing tasks ( that could mean anything from a sales pitch, to managing social media).

    This person will also be responsible for all the documentation needed before a shoot, including talent releases, call sheets.

    Basically, this person will be the producers left hand, learning first hand everything from advertising, to documentary filmmaking, to producing short content for the Internet.

    This person must be extremely organized. We need somebody with a good eye who has experience in design and/or video editing.

    Responsibilities include helping the executive producer create visually striking presentations.

    Should know basic design software, and programs like Excel and PowerPoint.

    Must be passionate about the details. Some basic video editing may also become a responsibility.

  • Qualifications

    We are looking for recent graduates or advanced college students who can work 20 hours a week at our office. There is definitely plenty of room for advancement and growth!

    Since producers can come from a variety of disciplines, we are open to all backgrounds, including those studying humanities, filmmaking, the arts. Somebody with experience as an executive assistant who wants to get involved in something more creative could also be a good fit.

    Basically, we are looking for somebody passionate who is eager to learn the nuts-and bolts of being a top-level producer.

    Bilingual (Spanish and English) is a plus but not a deal breaker. If you are a woman--especially a Latina-- you are also encouraged to apply.

    Ideally, you can commit to a full year, but a semester plus the summer could also work. Experience editing video is also a plus, but ok if you're learning.
