At Suited and Booted Studios we offer a full in-house moving image production service for a wide range of sectors including corporate videos, internal communications, advertising and marketing.
Established for over 17 years we are based in the heart of Bath. As a company we are constantly evolving and growing. With a client profile of mid-range companies and organisations who are looking for a high quality, creative and bespoke production, our main focus is on great storytelling that is shot beautifully.
Our dedicated team offers a friendly and supportive environment to work in and we are looking for a new camera opp to join our busy team. You must be not only an excellent camera opp with the ability to make even the most dull subject matter look beautiful, but you must also be creative and willing to work as a self-shooting director. It would be an advantage if you know your way around a Premier based edit suite too.
You must be talented, creative, experienced, and easy to work with, a self-confessed camera geek and be prepared to go the extra mile for our clients and the company. Being well organised, full of creative ideas with a good sense of humour and the skills to make anything look beautiful through the eye of a lens are basic requirements.
From working with clients to developing and distributing content, through to final distribution of content, at Suited and Booted Studios we pride ourselves on our ability to listen to a client’s needs, offer ideas and provide creative solutions that work for them.
Many of our clients are repeat customers and the relationships we build with them allow us all to stretch ourselves. We always strive to do the best we can and relish the challenge of making everything we do look beautiful. Our days are always busy and we are always looking at creative ways to expand our clients’ horizons and give them imaginative solutions to their moving image needs.
While some companies may only allow the creative directors to input into ideas development, we are a creative team and expect everyone to input. We share ideas and get together at least twice a month to discuss new ideas & possibilities.
We think we are a lovely company to work for and as a team we are always interested and excited by our work and strive to do the best we can for our clients at all times.
We want all members of our team to develop personally and grow in their work and expect people to be constantly pushing themselves to make better and better work that inspires not only our clients, but us as creative’s.
If you think you can fit into this ethos, if you feel you have something to bring to our company, if you want a bit of a challenge and are prepared to grow with us as a company for the next couple of years, then apply!
