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: Spark by Colenso BBDO and PHD

Why we like it: Spark's Santaline has been taking children's wish list requests for the past 24 years, but this year, there will be someone there to answer the phone rather than it going through to voicemail. As the ad explains, the helpers were required to have a jolly disposition and that's on display as the Metlifecare retirees wear festive accessories and take calls with a big smile. It's also lovely to watch as the two generations of children and elderly are connected through a shared love of Christmas.

Who's it for: Westpac by FCB Media

Why we like it: The ad breaks may be full of Christmas spots and the holiday is drawing closer, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop looking at serious topics like diversity in business. Westpac gets straight to the point in this video with the findings from a Deloitte study, commissioned by the bank, that asked businesses to share their thoughts on women in leadership. The video lets the numbers speak for themselves before Westpac shares its views about the value of women's skills and diversity in the workplace. Paired with a print takeover that saw only 29 percent of the New Zealand Herald printed (to represent the percentage of women business leaders in New Zealand), this campaign made us sit up and pay attention.

Who's it for: TSB

Why we like it: Christmas day might see children running to the tree with excitement about what lies beneath but that doesn't mean adults don't have wish lists too. In the spot, TSB explores what makes the best present in the world and the varied responses show it's not always something that can be wrapped up and placed under a tree. We particularly love how the father goes from new sheets for his bed to an around the world trip to show his son all the different cultures.

Who's it for:Trade Me by DDB

Why we like it: If your friend accidentally puts a sculpture head through your parents' glass coffee table, don't fret, Trade Me has you covered. The narrative of parents going away on holiday and leaving the house under the responsibility of their party-loving teenagers is not a new one, but Trade Me's put its own spin on it to show how its service can come in handy to replace anything that gets damaged—or in this case, destroyed.
