Amber Crosby Agency Contractor

Video Producer, Project Manager, Editor

United States - Last active: 9 days ago

As a video producer, I have worked on a wide variety of content over the last five years, ranging from commercial-style narratives to B2B service explainer videos. Having produced engaging and dynamic video content for small businesses and multi-billion dollar global enterprises alike, I have a strong ability to oscillate between the micro and macro aspects of any production. Some of the responsibilities I take on as producer of a production typically include: working with the client and creative team to help determine the best form of video for their messaging goals and brand voice, facilitating the client completion of a creative brief and asset delivery, creating a detailed budget breakdown and concept proposal, forecasting a project timeline, writing an SOW contract, assigning team members to the project, casting voice over artists and actors when needed, scheduling speakers, finding and booking locations, creating call sheets, acquiring insurance certificates, renting specialty gear, sourcing and booking specialty crew, ensuring feedback and delivery dates are remaining on track, monitoring project progress for quality and scope creep (intervening to reassess scope vs. cost when necessary), tracking project expenses, attaining all cast and crew paperwork, completing required billing and invoice documents, and making sure all finished video files properly delivered and archived. In addition to working as a video producer in both independent contractor and in-house positions, I have also performed project management roles. I worked for two years as a full time in-house producer and project manager at an award winning PR firm in San Francisco. In my role as project pipeline manager there, I tracked all projects in current production in order to assess what incoming projects our team could potentially take on and when, while weighing our revenue goals against our bandwidth. I provided advisement on how to most effectively allocate our resources, which internal team members should be assigned to upcoming projects and where it would be necessary to bring on additional contracted help outside of our core team. When it was required to bring on additional help, I often identified, vetted, booked, and briefed contractors. I often also did this to facilitate remote production, in some instances international production. The project pipeline I managed generally had approximately 20 projects in some stage of production at any given time, and I frequently leveraged contractors on a per project basis in order to meet our client's desired deadlines. Outside of producing and project management, I am adept on-set, have working knowledge of production equipment and variety of cameras, as well as strong video editing skills. I majored in editing at the Academy of Art University (graduated in 2009) and have worked as a contract editor for over five years for a number of San Francisco based production companies. I am proficient with a range of video editing systems and am familiar with standard post-production workflow protocol. My ongoing professional goal is to work as a producer, project manager, and editor to help create media that reaches its originally envisioned potential.
