About the Job:
Ezra Productions is looking for an experienced, HUNGRY Production Coordinator with experience coordinating video productions in the $5,000-$250,000 ranges. Experience in marketing and/or advertising is mandatory. Experience coordinating branding, web design, photography, and graphic projects would be ideal. You should have a sizeable and growing Rolodex of industry contacts (i.e. producers, directors, writers, cinematographers, editors, motion graphics artists, etc.). You'd be encouraged to come up with creative ideas for pitches. This position is on a path to Producer or Creative Producer.
You will be working directly with the CEO, who travels between LA and New York. The job will require flexibility and the ability to work nights and weekends as needed for project-based deadlines (especially at the beginning while you get up to speed). You should have an entrepreneurial mindset, love thinking with both sides of your brain, and be a natural problem solver.
Specific responsibilities include:
-Sourcing, vetting, and hiring contractors using your ever-expanding rolodex of directors, cinematographers, editors, writers, art directors, web designers, graphic designers, photographers, and other brilliant creatives, at a moment's notice
-Creating, reviewing and managing bids, budgets, and schedules
-Liaising with clients and vendors to ensure that all projects meet or exceed creative and budgetary requirements
-Facilitating auditions; scouting, securing, and permitting locations; sourcing and setting up accounts with vendors
-Drafting and distributing contracts for independent contractors and clients
-Prioritizing and managing multiple projects at once (both internal and external)
-Tracking sales and expenses and completing monthly finance reconciliations
-Maintaining internal production tracking calendars and tracking drafts and deliveries
-Helping create beautiful and smart presentations and budgets (of $5,000-$250,000) and managing them from concept to delivery
-Hiring and supervising interns
-Managing equipment inventory
-Submitting work for industry awards
You love business, communications, advertising, marketing, digital media of all kinds, and making clients happy. You should keep up-to-date with successful advertising and marketing and advertising videos and campaigns.
We all wear many hats, and you'd be expected to do the same without ego. You will work on a variety of projects, you'll have a lot of ''first times,'' and you are the kind of person who would approach it with grace and composure. We are really looking for the right person who is as passionate about the business as we are.
The position will start out as temporary because...why get married before going on a few dates?
Other Skills: Proficiency in the Adobe Suite of products, Powerpoint, Wordpress, and other design and marketing skills would be a welcome addition.
Your Personality: Razor-sharp, professional, polished, friendly, outgoing, empathetic, trustworthy, extremely detail oriented, witty, eager, hungry, a ''no-task-too-small'' attitude, passionate, and tending towards perfectionism but knows when to let go.
Your Aesthetic: Clean, modern, high-end, fashion-forward.

Experience producing projects with budgets from $5,000 to $250,000
Excellent math skills
Proficiency in the Adobe and Microsoft suites
Clear and eloquent communicator (both written and verbal)
Ability to work independently
Desire to make the world a better place
The ability to prioritize multi-task
