Unique Assistant/Entry Level Editor Position
Our production company Joke Productions is seeking an aspiring editor with:
- Great creative instincts
- The ability to choose and edit to music
- Basic graphic and sound mix abilities
- The desire to learn and grow in the unscripted and alternative television business
You’ll be cutting string outs and rough cuts of pitch tapes, which you’ll eventually help finish alongside an experienced editor.
Pitch reels will cover a range of genres including drama, comedy, action, thriller, competition, and more. Applicants must be willing to develop a large editing vocabulary.
This job requires an indie, “get it done” attitude, the willingness to experiment, and the ability to look at reference material in order to match a wide variety of editing styles.
You’ll be working hand in hand with the company owners who will give you notes, guide the creative, and provide scripts/outlines.
Pay is commensurate with experience, however, this is an entry-level position.
We’re looking for people eager to learn the business and take their skills to the next level. If you’re an editor on the level of Walter Murch, we can’t afford you.
This is a great opportunity for someone with a variety of creative post experience who is looking to break into documentary series, reality TV, and alternative television.
We love to promote from within, and this path may lead to full time work on one of our series.
This job is currently slated to last six weeks. While it may be extended from there, we’re only asking for a six week commitment at this time.
If you want to work side by side with the two of us (Joke and Biagio) on a brand new slate of television development, let’s talk…
Please send an email with a short note, your resume, any references, and a link to your reel to:
Los Angeles-based talent preferred.
Joke and Biagio are married and make film and TV. Together they own and run Joke Productions, Inc.
