The Production Co-ordinator (PC) is integral to the smooth running of our VFX projects. They will be passionate about Film and TV and have a strong understanding of client requirements. Working closely with the VFX Producer and Line Producer, they will be responsible for ensuring each project is effectively resourced, runs smoothly and delivers to budget and deadlines. A key part of this role is to look after the welfare of the artists and to flag any personal or work concerns to the Producers and Head of People.
The PC will track and coordinate the flow of work and communication between artists and the production team, as well as providing production support to the VFX Producers and Supervisors across multiple projects.
The PC will be proactive and able to work both independently and as part of wider teams. They will have strong people and communication skills, excellent planning and organisational skills and the ability to prioritise. There will be times when project scheduling or requirements change last minute and the PC must be able to quickly and calmly adapt, find appropriate solutions and communicate the changes to the Production team, Supervisors and Artists.
