About the Job

We are looking for two NYC-based Ass’t Editors with prior experience working on archival-heavy documentaries for a major doc series for a premium outlet.

Seeking candidates with major doc credits, great vision, storytelling chops and style as demonstrated in any genre of TV.

This is non-union. BIPOC AEs encouraged to apply. A passion for television history, especially Black TV and popular culture is a plus.

Work can be a hybrid of on-site and remote, however we encourage the AEs to work on-site at our office in downtown Brooklyn as much as possible. We have a socially-distanced office environment. We edit on Avid.

Dates: Positions begin early January to late February, and end late summer 2022 (approx).

Technical Skills:

-At least a 5 years experience working in post-production on documentary feature films or television series with Avid Media Composer
-Experience with 4k footage workflow
-Experience synching and grouping multi-cam shoots
-Experience with archival elements
-Experience working remotely, as well as experience assisting editors who are also working remotely
-Basic understanding of codecs and frame rate conversion
-Experience with media management
-Proficient technical skills, with the ability to trouble-shoot and solve problems
-Basic knowledge of spreadsheets and Google docs (though advanced skills are not a requirement)

Preferred Skills:

-Experience working with archival assets and FileMaker Pro
-Experience up-rezzing, prepping and delivering Avid sequences for color correction and sound mixing
-Experience with DaVinci Resolve
-Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, specifically After Effects and Media Encoder
-Experience creating and assembling deliverables
-Experience working with shared storage systems, such as Isis and Terrablock

Please send resume and cover letter. Thank you very much for your interest.
