Film Maker (FC 19)


Malmesbury - United Kingdom


We need a film maker to join our Group film team in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, making films that bring to life Dyson technology, products and stories. To work with producers and in-house creative, with responsibility of excellence in creative and production standards. This is a global role, making content for international use, setting the standard for our markets to follow. 


The work varies a lot; traditional TV commercial formats, quirky social films, documentary, animation. We have our own on-site 2000 sq ft film studio, but when needed we work with external, specialist teams as well. 
In most cases the film maker will act as an in-house director, creating a vision for a film and working with producers to make it happen in the best and most appropriate way, given budget, timings and other considerations. 
You need to understand spectacular production values, as well as being able to innovate and turn things around quickly and to a vast array of budgets and timescales. You need to be comfortable directing a full technical crew to the very highest level, but not afraid to pick up a camera and shoot and edit something yourself.
The film maker must lead the creative aspects of the film making process, collaborating with other creative teams. It is their responsibility that the films communicate messages and stories clearly and in the strongest possible way.
