Sustained investment in facilities and equipment allows the school to continue to embrace technologies working at the forefront of film and television production.  We are looking for a new team member to become a cornerstone of the technical team by transferring knowledge of the technical aspects; and equally as importantly, the craft of camera, lighting and grip operation to our students.

This includes the selection and rigging of lights according to production requirements. A knowledge of multi camera TV studio and gallery operation including vision mixing, keying and lighting desk operation would also be a distinct advantage.

You will provide a professional level of technical instruction, curriculum support, demonstration and supervision for the technical facilities, equipment and/or processes for all of the subjects of the School.
