Lead Filmmaker

Are you a multi-skilled video creator, with experience in directing, shooting and editing film for clients?

The Modern House is an estate agency that helps people live in more thoughtful and beautiful ways. Inspired by the principles of modernism, they represent design-led homes across the UK which celebrate light, space and a truth to materials.

The Modern House is looking for an ambitious and forward-thinking Lead Filmmaker to drive the next stage of the brand’s film development.

All of the agency's film work is currently outsourced to freelancers, so this is a newly created role for someone who can learn The Modern House’s approach to film and help to develop it further. 

The job involves lots of travel throughout London and the UK as a whole, often at short notice, so it will suit someone who is very organised, energetic and open-minded. Access to a car and a driving licence is essential.
