PRODUCER / PROJECT MANAGER (for Animation)
GIANT ANT is looking for a dynamic, organized and clever Producer / Project Manager to lead clients through our process to successful videos. We make short, high quality videos using live-action and animation (and a mix of the two) for a growing list of forward-thinking local and international clients.
ABOUT THE ROLE:
The Producer / Project Manager is our primary point of contact on a handful of client projects at any given time. Tasked with leading clients through our animated video process--from concept development to approval cut--this person is accountable for keeping clients informed and comfortable with their project progress, responsive and timely on their feedback and approvals, and ultimately happy with their Giant Ant experience. It's truly a key role in our delivery of great videos.
The successful Producer / Project Manager leads with grace--knowing when to push, when to pull and when to reassure. They can confidently drive the project ahead solo but are adept at calling for help and looping-in teammates at the right time to keep it all on track and use time wisely. They are comfortable talking numbers and wrangling meetings but also able to jump into a creative discussion when prompted. They are a juggler of many tasks, always keenly aware that they represent the voice and face of Giant Ant for a list of clients dear to us.
Requirements of the role include: meticulously organized, intensely detail-oriented, delightfully self-aware, and blessed with the ability to communicate clearly and concisely with people of all stripes. A working knowledge of the animation world is an asset but not a requirement (if you're clever we can teach).
In addition to the client leadership responsibilities, the Producer / Project Manager is expected to play a lead role in developing and improving systems and processes that continue to enhance our offering to clients. And like all small studios, a willingness to jump into a number of different roles throughout the day is required.
This is a full-time position starting immediately and working in our Vancouver Chinatown studio. Compensation is fair (based on the experience you bring) and includes benefits.
ABOUT GIANT ANT:
We're a small (11 people) creative studio delivering high-touch animation and live-action videos to a very select group of clients. Our team is young and talented, creative and innovative, and in the process of building a studio that gets noticed. We work hard (sometimes long), put love in all of our work and value our open, friendly and creative studio culture.
