Chocolate Films produces video content for museums, art galleries, charities and corporate clients. We run Chocolate Films as a social enterprise, and use profits from the video production services to support a wide range of filmmaking experiences for children, young people and vulnerable adults.

We’re currently looking for a new video editor/filmmaker to work as part of the team in our Glasgow office with 2+ years of industry experience.  This is a small team, so while the job will mostly be in the edit, you will need to be able to work on shoots with the other filmmakers when necessary.

The ideal candidate should be a self-directed learner and motivated to constantly develop skills and be able to work to fast turnarounds and quick deadlines.

This is a varied role that includes

  • Editing a range of video content, from briefs, storyboards or scripts. These are largely factual, promotional and exhibition films.
  • From time to time supporting on shoots as a second camera.
  • Facilitating digital video workshops.
  • Organising and managing hard drives.
  • Uploading and optimising video for online, including transcription and production of SRT files etc.
  • Archiving content on LT07 drives.
  • Liaising with our London office to share and manage footage and work.

Essential skills:

  • Mac user
  • Excellent skills in Final Cut Pro X
  • Basic motion graphics skills in After Effects and/or Motion
  • Creating and optimising content for different social media platforms
  • Good colour correction and colour grading skills
  • Dubbing mixing and sound editing skills
  • Teaching/workshop facilitation
  • Clean driving licence
  • Ambition to be part of a growing team

Desired attributes:

  • An ability to support on shoots if necessary
  • Teaching/workshop facilitation
  • An interest in art/art history and the museums sector
  • Experience of the full production process of a factual film
  • Basic self-shooting skills and willingness to learn (canon c100, c300, fS7)
  • On set sound and lighting skills
  • Generating ideas and writing treatments
  • Experience of teaching with young people
  • Ambition to be part of a growing team

Payment: Annual salary of £24,000 – £27,500 depending on experience.

Employment is contingent on a clean extended DBS check and clean driving license.

Duration: An initial 6 month trial period with a view to longer term position. Regular working week Monday to Friday 9.00 – 6pm, but flexibility essential as weekend and evening work is common. Time off in lieu offered for extra hours.

To apply, please send the following to

  • Covering Letter
  • CV
  • A link to a short factual film that you have edited

Applications will not be considered without the above three included.
