Posting Summary:
The McIntire School of Commerce is looking for a motion graphics artist to join our team. Primary job responsibilities will be to work with media department and faculty to create and edit animations and motion graphics for online video lectures and multimedia projects. Strong design, layout and conceptual skills are mandatory, but the ability to convert abstract concepts into visual examples, as well as acute problem-solving skills and strong listening and interpersonal skills are also a must.

The ideal candidate will work well under often tight deadlines and be capable of working independently on multiple projects simultaneously. This position may also require some time in the studio or on location helping the media team during video productions.

Multimedia projects will include promotional and marketing videos, student and alumni profiles, corporate documentary-style pieces, and instructional content for use in classes or as stand-alone material for online-only classes and programs.

In addition to the technical skills required, the ideal candidate will also be able to adapt to changes in schedule or resources, be open to collaborative suggestions or changes, and have a passion for good story-telling regardless of subject matter. The McIntire School of Commerce will be producing large volumes of educational media in the years to come, and the Multimedia Producer position will have a profound impact on the look and quality of that content.

Please attach a cover letter, CV/Resume, and a demo reel (include both video and motion graphics if you have them and indicate what role you played in the production of each segment)
