Filmmaker at MOTIF
Role
Salary
Location
Reporting to
Closing Date
Interviews
Background To Post

We’re MOTIF – a production company based in Gateshead and we’re looking for a Filmmaker to join our team.

We’re a bit of a different proposition from your normal business in this industry. We’ve got a diverse body of work and have ideas and opportunities to make that even broader.

You’ll probably want to have a look at our website to find out what we’re all about, so it’s here: www.motifpictures.co.uk so you’ll be able to see a bit more about us there.

Who Are We Looking For?

We’re not that interested in telling you loads about what we’re after – mostly because we want someone to come in and make this job their own. However, in order to be the right person for us, we’ll need you to be:

A good human being who we can get on with. Someone who genuinely wants to be with us and to push themselves to improve, diversify their skills and be the best they can be.
Able to film – clue’s in the job name but you’ve got to be able to use a camera
Able to edit – we’ve got post-production facilities on site and you’ll be expected to be able to use them. (We use the Adobe suite so Premiere Pro and possibly a bit of After Effects or the desire to learn it)
Able to communicate with us and external partners and clients. A big part of the job will be working with our corporate clients, helping to build relationships with new companies and also adding to our work across factual and scripted commissions.
Someone who can think for yourself, show initiative and want to develop and make your own films, videos, TikToks, podcasts or whatever. We’re all in this industry because we love it – or at least we should be – so we want that to shine through from you.
The big questions are always and obviously salary and level. To be honest, we have an idea of what we can pay the right person but we want to talk about that with you. In terms of your previous experience, we’re open to the right recent graduate with the right degree but ideally you’ll be able to show us a body of work that you’ve created over a couple of years that you feel shows you as someone who can do all the above.
Number one rule though, don’t bullsh*t us on your skills or experience levels. We’ve been around this industry for a long time so can smell it a mile off. However, if you do manage to convince us you can do something that you can’t then we’ll find out pretty quickly.

This is a permanent position in the company with an initial six months probation period.
All the normal stuff applies about pensions and how we’ll look after you.
For our part, we promise that if you put effort and commitment into working with us, you’ll get back far more.

How To Apply

Please send CVs and anything else you’d like to tell us about you and what you’ve done to hello@motifpictures.co.uk
