If an obstacle is encountered the director will flag to creative leadership and production management and propose a solution or a pivot.
Directing – Lead creative on the day of the shoot, directing hosts, crew and other elements, utilizing the team’s time for maximum creativity, minimizing unnecessary downtime, capturing all necessary assets including thumbnail photos, social and more and filling out wrap report and conducting an editorial kick off meeting with post production.
Continuous Improvement – Keep an eye on opportunities for improvement on a go-forward basis, conducting and sharing a self assessment after the video has gone live and ideating ways to make the next video better than the last
