Digital Producer

Detroit

Overview

Role Overview:

As a Digital Producer within Imagination’s digital production department, you will be responsible for project managing diverse film, post-production and interactive projects, covering everything from shoot/edit, motion graphics, animation (2D and 3D), real-time, interactive experiences and immersive technologies (AR / VR / MR).

Reporting to the Head of Digital Production, you will work closely with executive producers, senior producers, creative directors and technical leads, from budgeting and scoping, to execution and final delivery. You will help manage internal stakeholders and account teams throughout the lifecycle of a project and bring all your experience to the table to ensure Imagination delivers innovative solutions of the highest standards.

You will have in-depth knowledge of film making, animation and post-production for all formats, and should be at home on-set, as well as in the edit suite. You should have a creative opinion and be willing to actively contribute to the vision, including writing and editing treatments. More often than not we work outside traditional broadcast standards (16:9) or social media formats, on large resolution (10K+), multiscreen canvases, so the ability to think creatively and critically is important.

 

Additionally, you should have experience working on other digital and technology-based projects, from UX to UI, software development and technology integration. You will be experienced managing multiple projects running concurrently.

 

You are a doer, a team player with a sense of leadership and flexible can-do attitude. You love working with creative geniuses on high profile projects and getting the job done right.

  • Prepare and manage project plans, resources and schedules
  • Evaluate and mitigate project risk throughout the production cycle
  • Build relationships with external suppliers and vendors
  • Create a positive team spirit amongst production team members
  • Escalate any issues to the Head of Digital Production

 

Qualifications:

  • 4+ years of experience in film / interactive production at an agency / production company
  • In-depth experience in film production, animation and post-production for online, social as well as non-traditional screen formats
  • Knowledge of UX/UI, interactive design, digital production and a variety of technology platforms (handheld devices, touch screens, gesture, AR/VR/MR etc)
  • Fluent in Microsoft Office, G-Suite, Keynote and project management tools like Teams, Smartsheet, frame.io etc
  • An understanding of Agile production methodology principles
  • Excellent teamwork and strong communication skills
  • Ability to work onsite and on weekends during install and events

Our Team

Our relationship with Ford was initiated over four decades ago. Today, Ford Motor Company is a pillar client for whom Imagination works globally. Our primary responsibility, as a long-standing partner agency, is delivering connected experiences across channels, supporting Ford’s dialogue with diverse audiences, external and internal. Ford looks to Imagination for breakthrough experiences, whether auto show exhibitions, product launches, media presentations or training programs. In addition to producing and managing such events, we generate content and collateral.

 

Our Core Beliefs

We have identified four foundational beliefs that underpin Independent Creativity. More powerful than generic corporate values, they motivate us to act, to foster the behaviors that lead to success:

 

  • We believe curiosity is the root of original insights and ideas... so we look at the world with fresh eyes, we experiment, invent and up-end conventions.

 

  • We believe rigor results in better choices... so we ask precise, provocative questions.

 

  • We believe bravery tames the unknown... so we demand ambition, confident that together we can meet ‘never been done before challenges’.

 

  • We believe respect builds stronger teams and continued success... so we recognize the uniqueness and unique potential in each individual, we are accountable to each other, we play as a team.

 

Imagination is an equal opportunity employer, committed to a culturally diverse workforce. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or protected veteran status.

 

 

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION STATEMENT

Imagination believes that diversity, equity and inclusion are more than just words, and more than a legal framework or a moral obligation - they are guiding principles that, when acted upon, make us stronger, more innovative and more creative as an organization.

 

We commit to not only significantly increasing our efforts to effect change today, but also to ensure that our efforts will be sustained for the long-term. To support us on this journey we have appointed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board to help shape our plans to bring about positive change, to help us learn and keep us all moving forward together.

 

We believe the responsibility for a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace ultimately rests with all of us.

 

We believe that all employees should feel a sense of belonging at Imagination - regardless of their race, religion or belief, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability or background.

 

We believe racism has no place within our workplace or our work culture and we reject all forms of hatred, prejudice, intolerance and discrimination.

 

We believe that Black Lives Matter and it is our expectation that all employees become actively committed to making unbiased choices and are anti-racist in everything they do.

 

Our Imagination community must share and live these beliefs, as diversity makes us stronger.

 

Our priority is humanity and our efforts toward a more diverse, more equitable and more inclusive workplace are never done.
