Assistant Editor/Colorist Los Angeles, CA http://www.velem.com/ Apply Here: http://colaborator.com/jobs/1172 Velem seeks an experienced Edit/Color Assistant for our LA office. The successful candidate will be able to reliably follow direction, but also be capable of self-supervision and taking the initiative to improve workflows, spot errors, and anticipate problems before they happen. Essentially we are looking for a very organized and dedicated, technically savvy, and "calm under pressure" assistant to prep projects and also support our artists during supervised sessions, as well as make deliverables. Although not immediately applicable, there is a lot of room for growth for someone who has a broad appreciation of the media landscape including music, design, film, photography, and fashion. Technical requirements include a thorough understanding of common NLEs and graphics applications (Adobe Creative Suite including Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop as well as Avid and both FCPX / 7). It is also expected to be very experienced with DaVinci Resolve and prepping a project for color as well as re-conforming. It will be expected that you can fix normal workflow hiccups without requiring IT support (i.e. restarting a frozen machine etc), and also understand the difference between codecs and compressions (H264 vs a ProRes), as well as color space (sRGB vs Rec709). The ability to figure out an odd tech spec or render glitch on a deliverable will be essential.
