    I read the rules and can’t find anything that prohibits this since it is directly related to DVD software, and I can’t think of a better group to put this in front of. Please administrate me if I offend [​IMG]
    Many of you know me, some of you don’t. I’m the Managing Director of a DVD facility in Los Angeles. I’m hiring several positions in the coming weeks. The first two are DVD Authoring positions. Ideally I would like people with Authoring experience, but programming experience on NT and/or UNIX platforms and a love for DVD would suffice. HTML doesn’t count as programming experience around here. I need people that are fast, efficient, and detail oriented.
    The other position is in Quality Control. This position requires a VERY good set of eyes. You will be looking for tape hits, compression artifacts, and testing every button on the discs.
    It’s a great opportunity if you want to get your foot in the door at an established DVD C&A facility and learn the intricacies of making a DVD. We have lots of big toys. The positions are junior and pay $12-$16/hour depending on your qualifications.
    If interested please fax me your resume at 310-899-7230. Don’t bother sending me an email at my hotmail account, I haven’t read it for a long time.

    Morgan,
    I've worked in the entertainment industry for about 6 years now. Mostly all in video games. I was thinking about moving over to DVD. I have a few friends that have made the move. Do you know of or could you point me in a direction of any Producer/Director jobs for DVD's? Thanks in advance.

    Most DVD producers are independant. Your best bet is to intern/work for one of them until you get up to speed. Or you can take the bull by the horns and approach the studios directly with a proposal and a budget.

    Shoot.
    Morgan,
    Is there a possibility that I can telecommute from the Silicon Valley? That would be lovely. A pure dream job.
    BTW, Love your website's informative view of 16x9 on a 4x3 set found here: http://www.bitpress.com/16x9/16X9.htm

    Speaking of telecommuting, I live in Las Vegas and work for a company in Annandale (D.C.) VA. It sure is sweet! I write Portfolio Management software for money management firms.
    I just fly back to VA. about every two months or so to say "HI". With my broadband connection and e-mail there really isn't a reason for me have to be there...
    Muahahahaha
    My daily routine:
    6:45 roll out of bed
    6:50-6:55 make a bowl of cereal
    6:55-6:56 avoid the traffic while walking upstairs (my dogs)
    6:56-3:00 or 4:00 Work
    Rest of the day is mine..
    Who's yer daddy?

    The jobs are entry-level Steve, experienced authors are actually paid quite well.

    Sorry Phu, you can't telecomute unless you have an emulator, a digital betacam and a T3 connection.

    Damn. I think I qualify (if so, at the most basic level).
    BUT, I'd have to move to Calf. AND take a huge cut in pay to do it.
    No way, esp. w/cost of living in Calf. so high. Sorry. [​IMG]
