Pioneer DJ Lab - Video Production Placements

Pioneer DJ are offering work experience placements at our London studio in the UK. 

The kind of work will range from creating entire videos, to helping on shoots, helping with editing, help with camera work, administration, replying to people on Youtube comments, and much more. It will really be a varied role.

We will be taking on work experience placements according to your availability. Ideally we would be looking for a minimum of three months and we would be happy if people could do between 2-5 days a week.

These placements will be ideal for video production and music production students or graduates looking to gain work experience in an exciting East London music industry hub. People who really impress are likely to be commissioned as freelancers for ongoing work, so it's your opportunity to impress and kick-start your career.  

APPLICATION

To be in with a chance, I would like you to create and present a video and upload it to Youtube. The objective is to create a review of your chosen Pioneer product with the intention of making the general public understand exactly what the product is and why you would want to use it above other products. In this video you should highlight at least one performance trick. You should both demonstrate the trick and explain how to perform it. We will be looking for the following:

  • Good presentation skills
  • Clear and easy to understand information
  • The production value, based on your resources
  • How quickly you complete the work
  • Planning skills

When you finish the video, I would like you to write me an email with the link to the video and a brief summary of how you produced the video. I would also like to see your planning documents, such as any loose script, or shot-list, etc. Please also include your CV and any showreel you may have of video and DJ work. 

 

Deadline

Please complete your video by the 14th May 2012 and send me a personal message via this forum.

 

Any questions, please let me know below, and good luck – I look forward to meeting you!

David.

Do we have to use a pioneer tabletop/mixer etc.? because i only get to use those in the clubs.

I would like to join in but it would be weird to go into the club to make some random movie explaining how a mixer/tabletop works...

@Sammy > I would imagine using Pioneer is quite important. If you were going for a job interview, your interviewer would want you to demonstrate you know all about the company that you hope will hire you; not about their competitor.

@David > Nice to meet you, and excellent work with those videos you worked on!

@David & @Gavin > I believe many would like to know if location matters?

Technically, I'm in 'London' right now. (Canada) ;)

@Sammy > exactly as Gavin said, we want people that love pioneer equipment but if you don't have access then maybe you could borrow from someone, perhaps during the week. This is where the all-important initiative can shine through. But the main thing is the video should demonstrate you can actually make one. We need someone who can land running.

@David > I'd definitely love to take part, but unfortunately I'm in the wrong London.

If you have some time, would you mind taking a quick look at some of the videos I've done so far, and provide some feedback?

I'm really tempted by this but 5 Uni assignments to be done in this time aswell males for a head melt for time. Is there any way of submitting a cv even for future consideration?

I will have a video soon enough. :)

Any indication of what the pay will be? I need to know if it will be worth it for travel costs etc.

 

I'd do it if the pay covered travel costs as i've just finished studying audio engineering and am looking for full time work and this would look good on my CV. That's if my pure talents aren't snapped up by Pioneer for the long term ;)

Gavin, I live just north of brighton so not actually that far. With a young persons rail card, a london travel card is about £10-12  (if travelling after 9, getting into london at 10am earliest).

I know thats not a huge cost but some interns i've seen pay slave labour rates!

I will hopefully be recording my video this thursday so i will post it up then.
