WANTED: Executive Producers and Producers
Earlier this year, the Guardian made a geo-located audio app called Streetstories (www.guardian.co.uk/streetstories). Set in Kings Cross, London, the app triggers off stories by GPS, so as you walk the streets in the area, stories, music and sounds are automatically triggered by your location.
We may be making more so are now advertising for Executive Producers and Producers who can be part of a talent pool.
Specifically we’re looking for:
1. Exec producers: who can oversee the full production of the app. Have an editorial vision for the content and ensure quality of all the assets and technical implementation, working with our in-house and out of house developers, design team, product manager and marketing team.
2. Producers: Researching stories, recording and editing content on location and in studio. Producers may be working in a mixture of media so skills in audio, video, photography and written skills would be an advantage.
On Monday 23 July we will be running an assessment day. You will be shown how the apps and related software work and also the skills needed to make a successful app. You will then be tasked with recording and editing a piece to be submitted on Wednesday 25 July for assessment. We’ll tell you about storytelling techniques for audio on location but if you wish to start thinking about your piece now it will be set in the area of Angel, Islington (N1) and we’ll ask you to record and edit us a 2 minute story for use on such an app.
If you would like to be considered for this pool and attending the assessment day please send you CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th July 2012
In your covering letter please outline your main areas of expertise and why you feel you are the right person to join this pool with Guardian News and Media.
