Project Manager, Cinema Operations
Deluxe EntertainmentBurbank, CA
Full Time Job
The Project Manager will work with the Studio Support Account teams to help schedule and track Mastering work during the specified work shift. Internally this position will be working directly with all of Deluxe Digital Cinema's production departments.
The Project Manager in this role will utilize a proprietary Work Order automation system called Kraken, which Project Managers must quickly become proficient in. This system distributes available tasks to operators-and in some cases Supervisors-through a work order 'queueing' platform that is managed by our team. Priority is adjusted throughout the day to meet project deadlines such as client scheduling and product delivery.
Priority is determined through communiques we maintain with Account Management teams, who organize deliverables on the client's behalf. We receive project details via email, group and private messaging, in-person directives, and in some cases, directly from the client. We apply these updates to the database for consumption by the operators, who will modify and/or expedite the product based on our additions.
In order to transpose work orders correctly, Project Managers must correlate the total product output (per shift) against available resources, including staffing and equipment particulars. A fundamental understanding of digital delivery, DCP creation, quality control practices, and print distribution is essential and provides the language needed to assist team members in surmounting production obstacles.
All candidates must have an understanding of the Digital Cinema Packaging workflow, as well as a basic knowledge of the DI workflow. The Project Manager must be a good communicator, be well organized, work well in a team environment, and have the ability to facilitate multiple projects in a fast paced environment. The Project Manager must be flexible to work whatever shift is available including nights and weekends as well as work overtime as required by the business needs.
