Marketing Director

The marketing strategy around an entertainment brand, whether that is a product or entire company, is ultimately the responsibility of the Marketing Director. This person creatively designs marketing campaigns that reach out to the target audience to persuade customers to make a purchase.

Personal Manager

In the life and career of any entertainer, the personal manager is often the most important member of the artist’s machine. The lines between personal manager, business manager, and talent agent can be vague and blurry, but this person has the greatest impact on every professional decision made within the client’s career.

Localization Producer

Localization is the highly involved process of preparing a game developed in one part of the world, to be released in another; it entails enacting linguistic changes, as well as augmentations concerning culture, hardware, and software.

Advertising Account Executive

The advertising account executive works within a record label or third-party ad agency to drive album sales and public interest through the development and implementation of paid advertising campaigns. This person receives an assignment from the director of advertising and will typically work with a short roster of artists within a specific label division or genre.

Paint Foreman

The paint foreman may be hired by the paint coordinator and begins work during pre-production on a film or television program. This person is second in command of the paint department and must be capable of assuming the role of the crew head in the event that the paint coordinator is unavailable.

Advertising Music Director

From simple jingles to fully orchestrated original compositions, visual advertising is far more impactful when accompanied by a soundtrack. Advertising media companies are hired by clients to contribute original songs to promotional materials and rely on the expertise of music directors to guide production of soundtracks that seamlessly support commercial advertisements and engage audiences.

Interactive Art Director

The ways that consumers choose to interact with media are changing and evolving at a more accelerated pace than ever before. To stay relevant and better engage with consumers, entertainment media companies employ artists and web developers who have the talent and expertise to produce new, innovative web products.

House Manager

The house manager is chiefly responsible for the care, comfort, and safety of the audience during every live performance at a show venue. This person is a supervisor over all departments related to the front of house operations and works closely with the stage manager.

Talent Agent

A talent agent is responsible for securing employment opportunities for his or her roster of clients, which may include performers, screenwriters, composers, designers, and a number of other creative professionals in the entertainment industry. An agent differs from a talent manager in that an agent is licensed and operates under strict state and local laws.

Production Coordinator

Artists and scripters are adept at developing world-class MMOs and first-person shooters, but left to operate an office, inevitably rival factions would be warring over the supply closet and rationing what little scraps of carbs and caffeine remain in the kitchen. Even in free spirited, creative environments like a game studio, there must be one who keeps the wheels turning and ensures that the team functions like a well-oiled machine.
