As a Producer at Casual Films, you will be responsible for delivering multiple projects on time, on brief and on budget whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality across our output. You will be the point of contact from brief to delivery, involved in creative development, quoting and client management. The resulting films will be exceptional because of your input. We create both live action and animation and are interested in producers who specialise in either discipline as well as generalist candidates who would like to do both.

We are looking for a hungry and talented individual who wants to work hard and develop quickly in their career.

Be Passionate About Making Clients Happy

Be Can-Do & Proactive

Be Team Spirited & Accountable

Do More With Less

Be Open & Positive.
