The Apple Media Product (AMP) Video Operations (Video Ops) team is looking for additional support to their growing team. This role will act as a Project Manager/Project Coordinator/Title Manager working as the liaison between several teams and external vendors to ensure the proper distribution of Apple TV+ original content. This particular team is helping with the distribution side of the house for all TV+ originals. This role will work between the various teams such as platform, mastering, localization to get project updates for specific titles, then work with the external vendor who will pull together the final package for distribution that is released on Apple TV+. Example: (I completely made these sequences up) Consultant works with the TV+ Production team to see what they want to do about promotion for Ted Lasso. TV+ Production team says they want to do 120 placements of Ted Lasso in 10 different countries. Let’s say country #1 is the US. Consultant then pulls the country code in their internal database for the US (1), regulatory country warnings for the US (i.e, rating (R = 93) and why it got the rating (language = BS, smoking = SK, alcohol = AC, crude humor = CH) show title: Ted Lasso code (27), language: Ted Lasso English (522), which then produces an order code for the play sequence. Country 1 then equals 1-93-BS-SK-AC-CH-27-522 Country #2 is Mexico, which will then generate and entirely different order code and regulatory warnings depending on the country. And so on and so forth. Each of these requests will generate a play sequence that is sent to the external vendor and internal teams for distribution. It must be the right codes and the right order in which the viewer sees it (i.e, correct language, ratings/warnings, Apple TV+ logo, episode start, title card). This person will be responsible for working with all parties to ensure it’s not only delivered on time, it’s also the right requests and in the right order. COMMUNICATION AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL ARE SO IMPORTANT. Right now, this process is entirely manual, so having a good eye and strong communication as well as strong project tracking skills are hugely important. This person will have to look at large quantities of data and excel book of numbers. There’s currently a set process to do this, which includes pulling from an Excel doc and working within Quip to track all the proper information. Experience within Video Operations or Digital Servicing (which is NOT the same as media servicing).
