Louder Than Words is one of Sydney’s premiere video production companies. We
are a small but busy team with a focus on producing stories that help transform
our client’s businesses through social content, corporate videos and TV
Whilst we have an amazing family of contract staff whom we use on a project by
project basis, we currently have need for a highly talented, self starting and
creative all rounder to work full time from our beautiful Redfern studio.
Primarily we’re looking for someone who is a rising star on at edit suite. Expert
knowledge of Premiere Pro, After Effects & DaVinci is mandatory and experience
in Cinema 4D would be highly regarded. In your application we’ll be looking for
examples of motion graphics, beautifully cut live action, TV commercials that
you’ve cut and examples of compositing. Of course you’ll also need to have a
solid understanding of sound, including the ability to mix and master TV
To be right for this role you’ll need to be able to conduct a high quality edit quickly,
take a brief concisely and make decisions that will work towards a creative and
efficient end result. Whilst you’ll be working with our team most days, you will
need to have the skills to work with our clients when they come in for an edit and
occasionally be present at pitches to discuss your ideas.
Excitingly, you will also play a large role in the technical side of our company,
helping us to ensure that our edit suites are the best in the business. You will need
a strong level of technical know how and the ability to work with our Managing
Director to implement the best solutions on an ongoing basis.
Apart from the editing side of this role we are also looking for someone who
knows their way around a camera. Whilst we don’t expect camera operation to
play a large part in this role, it would be advantageous for you to be able to get out
and shoot for some projects. General knowledge of lighting, audio and general
camera techniques are needed.
Finally, we’re looking for someone that fits with our culture. We’re all about getting
our hands dirty and finding solutions for our clients whilst having fun at the same
time. We love having a laugh, are pretty chilled and get our kicks from doing what
we love - film making. Importantly, we have big goals and are all about growing
the Louder Than Words brand. Whilst we don’t expect you to burn the midnight oil
like some agencies, we aren’t clock watchers either - so you’ll need to be the kind
of person who’ll put the hard yards in when needed to make things happen.
So, what do we offer in exchange for your mighty range of creative skills?
1 A fun, flexible working environment
2 A light filled, creative space in the heart of Redfern
3 A modern work vehicle for use during shoots and for client visits
4 Brand new, top of the line edit suite, which you will help customise as we
are currently in the process of upgrading
5 A great variety of projects to work on - from TVC’s through to motion
graphics and corporate documentaries
6 Creative autonomy and a selection of great Directors to work with
7 Top of the range filming equipment
8 Awesome clients
9 The ability to put your mark on our projects and be part of a growing
The role is generally 8-5 Monday to Friday, with flexibility occasionally required for
unusual filming hours and edit deadlines.
Salary is set at $75K + super + work vehicle for company travel but may be
negotiable depending on experience.
We are looking for an immediate start. To apply, please send a ONE PAGE
document outlining a bit about you, why you think you’d nail this position and a
link to relevant work.
Please don’t send huge amounts of random links or work that you’ve only done
minor work on. Also, tell us a bit about yourself - we want to get to know the real
Only short listed candidates will be contacted for a meeting as we expect a large
number of responses.
