BBC SPORT

Job Introduction:

The BBC Sport’s Younger Audience’s Team are looking for a videographer / short form film maker to join us.

The team is brand new and focuses on sport and fitness content for 16-34 year olds. We’re aiming to find the subjects that this audience are into and find new ways of giving them the Sport content that they want or that they didn’t know they might enjoy. We’ll be developing new ideas, creating content, taking risks and testing it out. We’ll also be developing ideas and working closely with BBC Taster, BBC Three and Radio 1.

Role Responsibility:

The majority of your time will be spent shooting footage; whether it’s on an SLR or ipad. You’ll script short films with fun, humour and imagination.

Using your understanding of the 16-34 year old’s diverse audience and your knowledge of online trends you’ll be able to suggest ideas for and offer creative and interesting ways of making content; whether it’s a 6 second clip or 3 minute short film, idea creation is really important.

You’ll work closely with the rest of the Young Audience’s Team by undertaking research into sport, fitness, gaming, events and trends. This will involve finding and contacting appropriate contributors; finding locations for filming and selecting suitable video footage and music.

The Ideal Candidate:

You’ll be a confident film maker with previous experience of creating different types of short form films.  You’ll know your way around an edit package; whether it’s a simple cut that just needs graphics or adding audio and sound effects.

You’ll demonstrate an understanding and interest in the 16-34 year old audience from what apps they’re using, what’s trending for them and what’s boring them to pieces.

It’s important that you demonstrate a passion and understanding for sports and/or fitness.

As a regular user of social media you’ll be able to think about different themes and how they work on different social media platforms; you’ll have a good understanding of online trends, social media sites and apps such as YouTube, Twitter and Instagram.
