Mad Cow Films are looking for a full time up and coming off-line editor to join our ranks. This is a great opportunity for someone to work in-house at one of London’s top, award-winning advertising production companies.
Applicants should be proficient with Premiere Pro and have a working knowledge of After Effects, Photoshop, and other Adobe programs. A keen interest in creative software and programs that increase productivity and improve workflows is also a plus.
You will work closely with Directors & Producers cutting content pieces and also occasional TVCs. A friendly disposition is key as you will be required to liaise with clients and creative companies, occasionally acting as the sole representative of the company due to other shooting commitments of the Director or Producer. You will also be required to communicate with post houses and sound studios so a good knowledge of conforming, grading and the post-production process as a whole is desirable.
Along with the main editing work, you will be assisting the production team as a whole with day-to-day tasks such as cutting reels, creating animatics, versioning, uploading new work to the website and using our asset management systems to maintaining good health of the systems and the servers within the company. You will also be asked to source sound effects, music tracks (and track lay as required)
We are looking for someone who is self-motivated that can take on briefs and work individually on projects without daily supervision, but also work well under the pressure of strict deadlines, client presentations and be good at adapting to each project’s specific requirements. Someone who likes to stay busy and will lend a hand when it’s needed- we all work as a team here and everyone all help each other out where we can.
We’re not looking at paying typical Soho / Shoreditch edit house wages as this is a position for an editor so circa £ 25-28K depending on experience. There is also a bonus system for bigger projects undertaken.
