• Image researching, creating gifs and mood films

• Designing the layout of treatments

• Booking any additional creative researchers needed for other jobs

Other Responsibilities:

• Being on set with directors and, depending on the project, directing 2nd unit / additional visuals as needed

• Assisting production and directors on creating creative lead documents

• For larger scale projects potentially casting extras / small roles or cutting down to selects based off of director’s brief

• Assisting directors in brainstorming ideas and creating tests


• An understanding of InDesign, Photoshop and Premiere Pro

• A deep rooted interest in film, television, photography and graphic design

• A desire to learn all aspects of the trade of directing

• Good vibes and a top notch sense of humour
