1769 Media Production Supervisor

Recruitment #pbt-1769-062265

Introduction

Under direction, the Media Production Supervisor supervises a unit of Media Production Technicians and Media Program Specialists which is responsible for the production of live and videotaped production programs, public service announcements, on location productions, and in-studio productions.  The Production Supervisor supervises the producers, monitors the quality of productions, and handles many of the administrative tasks including estimates, budget, schedules and project delivery. 

 

SFGovTV has experienced an increased workload due to greater demand for its meeting coverage and video production services.  In response, the operation has increased the number of staff and has evolved into a more complex operation.  To handle the increased complexity, SFGovTV has restructured into two operational groups, one for its routine meeting coverage, program playback and administration tasks and the second for all other types of video productions and mayor press coverage.  These video productions are usually larger projects that are generally more time consuming and require a higher level of video production skill from the staff.

1. Produce, engineer, direct, shoot, edit and supervise video productions, including single camera "film style" and ENG (electronic news gathering) type productions, studio productions, multi-camera remote productions, and coverage of public events

3. Supervise, evaluate and train production staff

4. Prepare complete production budgets

5. Makes policy and budget recommendations to management

6. Communicate in writing and verbally with representatives of City departments
