We're looking for an experienced producer who loves making corporate accounts happy and flexing their creative muscles with our production team. Sound like you? Awesome. Read on.

The word "producer" is thrown around a lot in the world of video and film. And... it has lots of meanings. As a smaller video agency, we're looking for a producer who can wear many hats, but feels most comfortable orchestrating the needs of a client and ensuring our production team has the details to nail the project.

So if you don't necessarily have tons of experience on big sets, but you are crazy organized, know how to make clients feel great, and love working with creative teams — this could be the perfect fit. We're looking for someone with experience with corporate accounts (sounds boring, but it isn't). Someone who can understand the needs of a client, turn them into a detailed creative brief, and even start concepting, finding reference, and jotting ideas to get our team fired up.

Animus Studios is looking for a creative, organized, and experienced producer with a passion for video. As the producer, you’re the glue and the linchpin connecting our team to the details and a client to awesome video. The ideal candidate will have an entrepreneurial mindset and willingness to go above and beyond (but confident to push back when needed). We’re looking for someone we can trust, who takes pride in their work, enjoys being part of a small, growing team, loves the creative industry, and is very organized.

We are seeking a full-time candidate and are offering salary and benefits, including healthcare and retirement. This opportunity enables you to work remote the majority of the time. However, some in-studio and on-location time will be required.

A Little More About the Role

  • Track and schedule multiple video projects through all stages of production to ensure projects are completed on time, within budget, and in alignment with the creative vision.
  • Forecast resources and identify project, timeline, scheduling and provide recommendations for problem resolution in a timely manner.
  • Schedule and lead meetings with our team, freelancers, and clients.
  • Follow-up on and track the progress of each project, ensuring key milestones are met in order to keep projects moving within the timeline.
  • Delegate production-related tasks to appropriate members of the team.
  • Use your creative side to assist in concepting, scriptwriting, and project reviews when needed.
  • Guide thoughtful creative conversations with clients about their goals.
  • Passion for business-oriented accounts is helpful as many of your projects will be in the healthcare, technology and financial services industries.
  • Willing to travel locally to client locations for production and occasionally travel to projects that require overnight travel.

Required Skills and Experience

  • At least 5 years of experience as a producer, project manager, or account manager. Agency experience is a plus.
  • At least 1 year of general video production or related creative experience.
  • Understanding of various types of videos and production workflow is required.
  • Must exhibit high-functioning communication skills, high energy, enthusiasm, positive attitude and poise; be articulate and confident.
  • This is a full-time position and, while we have a studio near Providence, Rhode Island, much of the role can be performed remotely (especially during the current pandemic).
  • A proactive self-starter with a strong work ethic, who understands the details within a larger context and demonstrates good judgment.
  • Experience with client interaction and engagement in a professional setting.
