Video Production Manager

  • Auckland Central - Britomart

We're on a mission to help New Zealanders of all ages make informed decisions throughout their lives that will help them get ahead financially.

But it isn't always easy cutting through the noise and grabbing attention, which is why we need you.

The Commission for Financial Capability doesn't have an exciting name, yet our approach is anything but dull. You might know us for our award-winning website but there's much more to us that that. When we had to report to the government last year about retirement income policies, we used stop-motion animation with Ken, Barbie and a team of superheroes.

We’re big believers in video to deliver our messages and to help bring about behaviour change. We want someone with filming and post production experience with a contemporary creative style to join the team to plan and create video content for the Commission and Sorted’s online channels. It’s an end-to-end role … planning, filming, interviewing, scripting, editing and motion graphic design as well as contributing to the wider team’s creative strategies. You'll get to take on a wide variety of projects.

Here's what you need to bring to the party:

• A production degree and possibly post-graduate qualification in digital media and film production.
• Creative storytelling experience.
• Knowledge of how to set up and operate a multi camera shoot
• Experience at capturing a quality audio
• Lighting experience (2-3 point lighting and when to use lighting over natural light)
• Experience operating a DSLR still camera for portrait and event photography.
• Proficiency in the use of Premier Pro (or other industry standard edit software such as AVID or Final Cut Pro as well as Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects to support editing work.
• An understanding of how video interacts in social media and know your way round the ins and outs of directing a live broadcast and know how to work with a virtual team.

Also, non-negotiable:
• You must be well-organised and able to plan, prioritise and manage time.
• Resilient so you work well under pressure, are adaptable and resourceful to overcome problems and consistently meet deadlines.
• A team player who enjoys collaboration.
• A passion for, and understanding of, financial capability.
• A demonstrated high level of intellectual, creative, conceptual, strategic and analytic ability.
• An eye on the rest of the world, so you keep innovating and ensuring we stay ahead of the pack in the way we communicate.
• The confidence to provide insights and recommendations that will improve the Commission's cut through and reach from a design perspective.

We can offer a job that changes lives, in a work environment that's busy but still makes sure there's time for some laughs. You'll be working with a passionate team, in Britomart.

Who’s it for: Forsyth Barr/Summer by FCB New Zealand

Why we like it: New Zealanders are notorious for taking serious decisions lightly and this tongue-in-cheek ad by FCB for Forsyth Barr’s Summer KiwiSaver scheme gets that tone just right. A human-sized sheep in trendy clothing talking about his negligence towards his financial responsibilities is enough to get a chuckle out of anyone. The thinly veiled analogy to ‘not be a sheep(le)’ and take responsibility is not preachy but light-hearted.

Who’s it for: ANZ by TBWA

Why we like it: We all know it’s rare to see a heart-to-heart between two men on television so it’s nice to see just that in ANZ’s new KiwiSaver ad by TBWA. The way KiwiSaver is brought up in the ads is pretty clunkily approached but adding other topics such as dating, household chores and life makes the ad an endearing watch.

Who’s it forSpark by Colenso BBDO

Why we like it: Matariki season is bringing with it a lot of joy and pride nationwide this year. Spark’s unique video embraces what is important about our very own New Year – family, traditions and knowledge. More an educational resource than ad, the care taken to make the imagery and sentiment culturally appropriate is evident in the decision to include all nine Matariki stars. The animation artfully articulates the stories behind the constellation while the te reo Māori script is as much soothing as it is exciting to see the language celebrated.
