We’re looking to beef up our web presence and need someone to make us look real purdy. To that end we’ve put an ad up on Culture Works for a web designer/graphic artist intern. We’ll also be posting an ad for a social media intern in the coming days. Here’s the text to that ad and a link. If the gig interests you or you know someone who it would interest, drop us a line:
Web Developer/Graphic Designer
Date Posted: Nov 09, 2012
Application Deadline: Nov 23, 2012
Start Date: Nov 30, 2012
Term: Internship (Volunteer)
Dangerous Dust Productions
We are a newly established, edgy and ambitious film company in downtown Toronto. This past summer we shot our first feature film, a scifi comedy entitled A Brand New You, which is presently in post-production.
Our mandate is specifically to make films that target under-served demographics in Canada, North America and beyond. We want to make movies where real women have strong leading roles and where non-whites play more than taxi drivers and gang members. And we want to do it through cutting edge, gut-splitting comedy. Besides being the right thing to do, we also believe that it makes good business sense for indie filmmakers to target “niche markets” that are generally neglected.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic intern who wants to put their awesome and creative web design/development skills to work for a film company that, like them, is just starting out. We are developing a slate of films and know the value of having a quality home on the web – both for our company and for the films that we are developing – as part of an overall social media strategy.
But while we have big ideas, we don’t have the skills necessary to realize a web strategy on our own. That’s where you come in. You are ambitious and excited to show your stuff as you build your portfolio. Perhaps you just graduated or are looking to strike out on your own as a freelancer. You love film and film marketing – especially the opportunities that exist in the age of web 2.0. – and you have lots of fresh ideas just looking for an opportunity to be applied.
The selected candidate will work out a development plan as part of a social media strategy with the production team and will be fully credited as part of the marketing team across our media properties, including in film credits, on IMDB, etc.
The successful candidate will have an eye for cutting edge design and illustration, as well as a solid knowledge of web design and web platforms. A techno-geek artist hipster, preferably with a knowledge of film and film marketing campaigns.
