We are seeking a post production runner for the film department in Studio RM; a creative studio that specialises in color grading and post production for film, print and digital.

Post-production is the last stage of the film process and involves creating a finished programme using the footage from production, refining elements such as sound, editing and colour grading grading and VFX. At Studio RM we have colourists, editors and VFX artists working in the studio, working on TVCs, online campaigns and music videos.

The role of the runner is an opportunity to gain vital experience and knowledge of the film post production process, offering valuable understanding of how a studio and artists operate and is often seen as the first step for people aspiring to roles in film and post production.

What does a post-production runner do?
