Who are you?
The ideal candidate will need to be confident with being the sole lighting and sound technician, and not be afraid of heights. Excellent social skills and both written and verbal communication are desirable. You will love entertainment, have excellent time management skills, be confident in working alone, have a good awareness of health and safety… and of course cooking popcorn and making ice-creams. Experience working in the events industry or passion with lighting and sound and with Digital Cinema equipment is highly desirable but not essential.
