JOB: Media Coordinator/Director

MEDIA COORDINATOR/DIRECTOR for Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment

There is a lot to oversee when you’re working in an arts facility of this capacity, so you have to be totally comfortable with a mix of responsibilities and skills. Get ready to work odd hours and deal with an array of people. Also, you must take charge of all media interviews, even when wearing a Wonder Woman costume. In addition to dealing with the public face-to-face, you must know when and how to interact with the people of social media. Be of assistance during major Lowe Mill A&E events. Despise bouncy houses. Shoot and edit videography work, and photograph events, artists, artwork, random things, and more. You help control the overall image of the facility. The entire image, so stay strong. Sometimes people can make you mad. Know that you can’t say what you really want to say. But also, you have to know when to stand up for yourself and for the Mill. It’s important that you are comfortable with weirdness; sometimes things can get a little strange. Go to various meetings and gatherings about town as a/the representative for the Mill. Take charge when you have to, even if it means overseeing an entire event, swanning, MC’ing and photographing said event all while wearing a handmade pumpkin costume with a broken platform Mary Jane shoe that an artist kindly tied up with wire. The important take away here is that the Mill is fun and magical, but the job is very serious, so if anything, just remember that.

As the Media Director of Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, you must:
1. Manage all social media platforms
2. Photograph events, artists, artwork, and several other things
3. Design, shoot, and edit promotional videos
4. Take lead and oversee ALL Lowe Mill A&E promotional material
5. Deal with the media and the public
6. Enjoy a good adventure
7. Take lead with various events, meetings, opportunities, etc.
8. Be organized

Here are some pretty important skills required for this position:

  • Photography (experienced)
  • Videography
  • Video and photo editing
  • Knowledge in Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, Google Drive, MailChimp, WordPress
  • Knowledge in all social media platforms, primarily Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
  • Basic graphic design skills
  • Mac OS X
