We are seeking a Content Producer to join our production team!

 

ROLE:

The Integrated Production Department at Carmichael Lynch is a creatively led team that focuses on craft, efficiency, collaboration, problem-solving and storytelling. We are a talented mix of proactive, curious and kind people who love to use both the left and right sides of our brain.

 

As a Content Producer, you’ll be responsible for the management of day-to-day production needs of medium to large-scale branded content, such as TV/Digital/Social films, audio content, still shoots, brand activations and branded entertainment.  

 

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

You’ll be a problem-solving partner to the integrated production team, creatives, account management, project management and strategy during creative development and pre-production to understand the scope of a project, create a schedule, manage the budget and bring in potential creative partners.

 

Alongside your creative cohorts, you’ll work closely with external partners such as production companies/directors, fabricators, illustrators, photographers, editorial houses, animation/graphics artists, music companies, recording studios and post-production/finishing facilities based on who’s best suited for the creative idea as well as the scope/timeline/budget of the project. You will also work closely with our internal studio to produce content both for still and video needs.

 

You’ll partner with Business Affairs to identify and manage risk, secure clearance rights, generate production estimates for client approval and cast/budget for SAG talent both on- and off-camera.

 

You will work closely with Talent Payment Specialists to negotiate all on- and off-camera talent according to SAG rules based on content usage and distribution.

 

You’ll be accountable for managing the production budget, schedule and communication with partners throughout the project. You’ll work diligently to solve problems, managing multiple projects without losing sight of the big picture or the smallest production details and stay one step ahead by proactively communicating clearly with your Carmichael Lynch team and clients.

 

You’ll have ownership over the details and logistics of your production. This includes communicating status and next steps clearly to the team, tracking your budget, creating the schedule and production plan, overseeing the bidding and awarding to creative partners, managing the master deliverables and spec list, coordinating meetings and ensuring the job is wrapped and organized according to agency policies. 

 

You’ll work closely with creative, project management, business affairs, account management and external partners to build strong relationships based on trust, creative excellence and collaboration.

 

You will develop and nurture relationships with the production community while staying current on inspirational cultural content, up-and-coming talent and new potential creative partners.

 

WHO YOU ARE:

  • You understand the value of creative partnership with various types of collaborators and are inspired by challenges big and small. Maybe you’re someone who likes untangling a knotted-up necklace.
  • You like to wrap up every last detail, keep people informed, take pride in a well-crafted email and learn by observing.
  • You are confident in what you know and equally confident that you have room to grow. You approach every opportunity with an open, curious mind.
  • You like partnering with others and value building strong, genuine relationships with people.
  • You have a creative point of view and a solutions-driven mind.
  • You have a track record of gaining trust and respect by consistently demonstrating sound critical-thinking skills while maintaining composure and integrity in stressful situations.
  • Your main character vibes include being a self-starting, go-getter who can manage a zillion things without breaking a (visible) sweat while keeping your sense of humor.
  • The friend your friends know they can count on. You have a willingness to go above and beyond and lend a helping hand.

 

What We Believe:

We believe that when the best of strategy and creativity come together, brands stand apart.

  • A competitive, equitable salary (reviewed annually to ensure equity and competitiveness).
  • A strong, vibrant, continually evolving diversity, equity and inclusion belief in thought and action, encompassing our agency and our employee resource groups (ERGs), recognizing all voices need to be heard.
  • Competitive, company- and employee-sponsored benefits, including medical, dental, vision, 401(k) (company matched 50% of first 6%), PTO (vacation/sick time) allowance, 18-week maternity leave, 12-week parental leave, 19 paid company holidays, family-building benefit (adoption, surrogacy benefit), tuition reimbursement and much more.
