DigitalFilm TreeUniversal City, CA
Full Time Job
DigitalFilm Tree, a post and production veteran facility in Los Angeles, is a leader in cloud based dailies, remote editorial and finishing, VFX, archival services and on site/in house needs. We are an authority in cyber security for media & entertainment with ongoing R&D efforts that have contributed meaningful software applications to our community. As a multi talented collective of thought leaders, DigitalFilm Tree is hoping to add another super hero to our team in our Dailies department.
GeoDailies™ offers seamless integration for productions near and far and is supported by DigitalFilm Tree's interdisciplinary, hands on team of post, IP, and networking wizards. Services include camera raw storage with media asset management and transport, international production servicing, and enterprise supply chain management. By moving dailies workflows to the cloud, clients can further minimize the amount of hands needed on-set to manage footage, physical shipping of media, and eliminate both the human risk and budget consuming task of physically preparing drives.
A GeoDailies Operator is organized, flexible, responsive, and a team-oriented individual who is hands-on, a good problem solver, and exhibits a proactive style. Must demonstrate an ability to work within our collaborative environment, and has excellent skills in building relationships, communicating effectively, and serving the needs of others.
Soft Skills we seek:
• Interdisciplinary: meaning we all possess more than one strength across the scope of facility needs (i.e. our CTO is also our Senior Colorist, our Director of Content is also an authority in billing and data security, our Online Editor is also one of our content producers, etc.)
• Clear Communicator: Context is incredibly important to us. Because of the large scope of innovation we put forward, teams could easily lose track of what hand is doing that impacts the other. We prioritize efficiency, but never at the cost of leaving anyone in the dark.
• Endlessly Curious: While we respect the advancement being made outside of DFT, we know we have an incredibly gifted team of people in house who are and have built some of the most progressive M&E platforms in use on cutting edge shows. So we're constantly learning, building, breaking, battle testing and imagining new solutions for our client partners and do our best to remain brand and workflow agnostic.
