About Media Zoo
Media Zoo is an award-winning Production company based in state of the art offices at Imperial Wharf by Chelsea Harbour. We are one of the fastest growing media agencies in the UK offering creative solutions and skills across Film, Learning and PR.

The Role
You'll be joining our new team in Zurich and will therefore be responsible for the creative approach and smooth production of a range of projects. You will take each project from client brief and creative treatment through to scripting and development, pre-production, shoot, post and delivery. The films will range from branded content, internal and external communications, PR, learning and promotional. What is consistent is each film we produce must convey a message in the most creative and engaging way possible.

The ideal candidate will have a varied production experience with some brand or communications background. They will have produced similar films to us and can clearly demonstrate they can take a project from brief through to delivery. This is also a client facing role and we are looking for the right balance of client management, producing background and creativity. If you do not have experience in these areas, this role is unlikely to be right for you.

Key Responsibilities
  • Developing creative treatments and be hands-on taking them from client brief through to delivery.
  • Deliver projects on time and to a very high standard.
  • Operate our in-house Avid edit suites.
  • Self-shooting, with a view to developing, directing and interviewing skills.
  • Client management.
  • Budgeting.
  • Scheduling.

The ideal candidate
The successful applicant will have had experience in making corporate, branding or communications films and be able to demonstrate knowledge across the entire production process. This will be through hands-on experience in writing, directing, shooting and editing. Much of the content we create is engagement based and you will be able to clearly demonstrate how you have produced films in the past that have engaged an audience.

You will be able to interpret and interrogate a client brief and devise the best narrative, visually engaging and creative approach to solving it. You will be a communicator and a storyteller and enjoy the challenge of making films that resonate. You will be calm under pressure, demostrate excellent attention to detail and professionalism.

The right candidate will be able to show a track record in project management, be hardworking, diligent and passionate about delivering high-quality content regardless of scope, budget and timeline.

We are looking for a self-starter with a can-do attitude that can hit the ground running. You will take ownership of your projects and enjoy the pace of working in a busy agency environment.
