We are looking for an experienced Production Manager to work on an exciting new landmark wildlife series for a global SVOD!
Working as part of a large, friendly team, we are looking for positive individuals with a collaborative outlook and experience managing a team of co-ordinators & prod secs. Providing direct support to the Line Producer, the Production Manager will also be responsible for communicating key production information to the Producers and editorial team.
Comprehensive knowledge of setting up complex, international shoots is essential including raising contracts/ dealing with permits/ indemnities/visas, boat/ drone permissions, filming under Covid- 19 guidelines, negotiating rates, overseeing tricky logistics+ movement orders and dealing with crews+ fixers. Experience setting up water based shoots (either underwater or topside) would be advantageous but not essential!
Candidates should be confident managing large cost managers, highlighting any issues to the LP. Due to the complexity of the shoots, the PM's should feel comfortable liaising with Health and Safety advisors and insurance and know when to escalate to the Line Producer.
Ideal candidates should have a passion for working imaginatively to deliver editorial ambition on budget!
The PM role will be based in Bristol and includes a mixture of WFH and in the office. Would suit someone looking for part time work (4x days a week). Role starts in Oct 2022 until Dec 2023 (start dates can be flexible for the right people!).
We are an inclusive equal opportunities employer and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups.
