Closing Date


Contract terms: Freelance (you will need your own computer and software)

Contract period: 19 Oct 2020 to 13 Nov (approx. 10 days’ work across 4 weeks)

Fee: Fixed Fee of £1,500

Role purpose:

To manage the production of video content for the Radio Academy Festival, a virtual conference happening from 9-13 November, including pre-recorded and live elements.

Responsibilities and outputs:

  • Support session producers to work with their guests and speakers to make their at-home visual set ups as good as they can be, including advising on lighting, sound and framing. There will be approx 20 sessions in total, and around 60 contributors.
  • Oversee the remote-recording of any pre-recorded sessions (using Zoom or similar), working alongside session producers, guests and speakers.
  • Editing the pre-recorded sessions in-line with the session producers’ requirements, for timely delivery to live playout and for on-demand publication. There will be approx 8-10 pre-recorded sessions.
  • There is the possibility of this role shooting some contributors in their office or studio locations. This will be subject to the availability of Covid-safe environments and other logistics.

Skills and Experience:

  • This is a freelance role. You will need to use your own computer and all necessary software, and have a fast internet connection to handle large video files.
  • Experience of self-shooting with basic equipment, and the ability to convert that knowledge into advice for contributors managing their own at-home setups.
  • Track-record of editing videos to a high standard, delivering to tight deadlines.
  • Experience of publishing to on-demand platforms, with quality metadata and images.
  • Access to your own basic self-shooting equipment would be an advantage (camera, sound, and basic lighting), but not essential.
