Global Cycling Network (GCN) is looking for script writers to help research and develop its long form content. We are looking for Road Cycling Script Writers with at least 3 years script writing agency or in-house experience to join our team.
As Script Writer, you'll be responsible for researching, developing and writing long form documentary scripts for video content ensuring that it delivers on our editorial plans to create entertaining, informative content that communicates the personality of the channel.
You’ll report into the Head of Content/Content Director and you’ll work closely with the Filmmakers and production coordinator to interpret and realise the creative vision for our content.
You will work within a production team at various stages: from the inception of a concept/idea for a series or film, to the formulation of a script. You may work to tight deadlines, which vary according to the type of production, a few examples: Historical, Tech, Epic Rides, Weekly Feature or Scientific. For example, weekly feature shows demand a quick turnover of scripts. In contrast, a script writer sometimes has more time to develop their ideas for a documentary.
This is a key role and your skills can determine the quality and delivery of the final product.
You may write for a specific genre which requires a sensitivity and understanding of differences and nuances of writing conventions.
WHAT SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE WILL YOU NEED?
