An expert master of madness, the studio manager keeps the studio ready for shoots at all times. Our studio space is where the magic happens, sometimes for multiple clients at once. The studio manager must be aware of when and how the studio is being used and be able to help the Account Executives schedule time for clients to use the studio. On top of being organized, the studio manger needs to have expert understanding of video production, lighting, and set design. A commanding people-person, the studio manager ensures everybody is prepared for their jobs in the studio. They answer last minute questions and help keep everything running smoothly.
Shoots are the busiest time for the studio manager. Before the shoot even lands on the schedule, they collaborate with pre-production and production staff about what will be needed for the day of the shoot. The studio manager plans any logistics such as receiving set design pieces and working with the location scout to help design the space for a customer video. On the day of the shoot, the studio manager oversees all the prep and makes sure everything is ready to go before the customer arrives and the camera begins rolling. This typically involves working in a large team including a Senior Videographer, Cinematographer, Photographer, Production Assistant, Location Scout, and Lighting Technician. Of course, the Creative Director on the project is the main overseer, with the Studio Manager at their right hand before and during the shoot.
