Job Description

Studio Manager - Singapore

Full-time – Permanent – Based in one-north, Singapore

As the Business School for the World, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world to change lives and transform organisations. The unique global perspective and multicultural diversity of INSEAD are reflected in all aspects of its research and teaching.

As part of our ever-growing offering, INSEAD is presently recruiting for a full-time and permanent Studio Manager for a position based at our Asia Campus in one-north, Singapore.

INSEAD is excited to announce that it will be building a multi-purpose, dedicated audiovisual recording studio at our Asia Campus in early 2023, and we are looking for an experienced and creative Studio Manager who will manage the studio operations. You will assist with the production of learning content to be used in various digital learning platforms such as the INSEAD Learning Hub. You will support in-person productions (at the studio and other on-campus locations) as well as virtual/remote productions using Zoom etc. The learning content will be produced in collaboration with thought leaders such as INSEAD faculty, alumni, other practitioners, research centres as well as other departments at INSEAD.

The Studio Manager is also responsible for handling the post-production phase in collaboration with various internal and external producers. Broadly, this involves selecting and organising footage, sourcing additional media such as music, performing color grading and cleaning up audio, often while trying to meet brisk deadlines. You should hold the finished videos and audios to high standards, aiming for coherent storylines, seamless transitions, visual and aural appeal, alignment with the creative vision and consistency of format.  

Reporting to the Head of AV Production – Learning Content (based on our Europe Campus), you will work closely with the members of the Learning Innovation team based on the Asia Campus in Singapore.
Due to our international nature, we require fluency in English to understand the content of the videos and audios, and to liaise with internal and external stakeholders. 

Main responsibilities include:

Video / audio production Set up, operate, and maintain the studio equipment - video cameras, lighting, audio recorders/microphones, teleprompters, etc. - for high quality video and audio production. This will need to be set up and operated within the studio and other on-campus locations for both in-person as well as virtual productions.

Live production Ability to operate the equipment to stream and record live events (webinars, classroom sessions etc.), including live switching, live streaming in the studio and other on-campus locations for both in-person as well as virtual productions.

Handling requests Manage productions such as, fireside chats, in-person/remote interviews, in-person/remote podcasts, classroom sessions etc. for faculty as well as other internal and external stakeholders. Assist with productions of any other requested footage using the studio or on-campus facilities or remote production tools, and editing the footage whenever needed. Track and report to team leadership on status of various requests.
Footage Assembly and Editing Transform raw video and audio footage into a finished product. Select footage to keep and assemble into a fluid sequence, varying the camera angles and trimming as necessary. Design and edit audio/video/graphic material to create videos, podcasts, or other content, in formats relevant to the various platforms and nature of the content.

Working with Stakeholders While the Studio Manager usually has the freedom to make key decisions based on a brief or script, it is vital to consult regularly with major stakeholders to clarify requirements, receive feedback, and make adjustments throughout the entire post-production process. Provide guidance to the talent being recorded and facilitate the directing process. Suggest approaches in terms of style and pace throughout the production workflow. 
To succeed in this role you will need to be able to fulfill the above responsibilities as well as possess the following:

  • Fluency in English and an international mindset as you will be working with stakeholders on all continents.
  • Deep knowledge of the latest video and audio production techniques. Knowledge of graphic design techniques is a plus. A continuous learner!
  • At least 3-5 years’ experience of video and audios productions, and post-production editing. You will be asked to provide examples of previous work or do a practical test if you reach final interview.
  • Familiar with multi-camera studio equipment and more specifically Black Magic Design’s Ecosystem: cameras, lighting, live switching, livestream and green screen production.
  • Fully proficient in at least one of the following industry-standard post-production suite: Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve.
  • A curious and creative mindset that is able to think outside of the box when required while having a great attention to details along every stage of the production process!

In return for all the above, you will have the opportunity to work on audiovisual learning content for the world's leading educational institute while collaborating with the best international leaders in education and research.

If you are interested in applying, please forward your CV and cover letter to [email protected] with the subject title “Studio Manager - Singapore” or HR reference "HR9".
