Editor/Animator | Job Description 

  • Salary £25-£30K depending on experience
  • 3 month initial contract with a view to an extended contract/full-time position.
  • Immediate start required
  • Application closing date: 23rd March 2020

Overview

Hello! We are Huxley, a film and animation studio specialising in branded content and we’re on the hunt for a top-notch video editor/motion graphics animator.

As well as being an experienced editor who knows Adobe Premiere inside out we also need someone who is proficient in creating titles, treatments and motion graphic animations in After Effects. 

This is not a junior role – we are looking for someone that knows how to tell a story and can do so with commercial flare. You will be working on all kinds of branded content from mini docs and promos to tv adverts. You need to be able to work with producers, creatives and directors to realise a vision, but we also welcome ideas and creative solutions in response to a brief. For this role we need someone who can hit the ground running without being afraid to ask questions and communicate challenges or creative ideas. And whilst tech skills are important, we also want you to bring something new to our company and help us up our game! 

Person qualities and technical skills

  • Minimum 3-4 years in-house agency/production house experience.
  • Experience – We are looking for high-end execution in Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Illustrator.
  • Creatively charged – Push us to try new approaches and techniques. 
  • Speed – You’ll need to be well organised and able to work to tight deadlines autonomously.
  • Sound FX editing/music sensibility.
  • A team player who’s happy to take direction and respond to feedback with a calm creative head.
  • Be meticulously organised and confident in tackling technical and creative problems.
  • Communicate challenges, ideas and questions with clarity.
  • Stay up to date with the latest trends, software, plugins etc.
  • A multi-tasker – We’re a small team so you’ll need to happily hop between multiple projects.
  • Ability to be flexible with working hours (though this is rarely required)

Desirable

  • Colour grading in DaVinci Resolve
  • IT skills – server/networking knowledge
  • Advanced Illustrator/Photoshop level
  • 3D Animation skills

Next steps

This is an exciting time for Huxley and this role is an opportunity to become a key part of our team. If this all sounds good, we’d love to hear from you, however, please only apply if you’re confident that you tick all the boxes!

Application closing date: 23rd March
