Potion is seeking an energetic Business Development Producer to join our team. The Development Producer combines the skills and executional responsibilities of a producer with the tailored focus of finding, creating, and developing new projects and new opportunities.
S/he is the tactical gatekeeper for the studio and works with Ops, Production, and Management to convert opportunities into projects, projects into programs, and programs into reputation.
The Development Producer is a gatekeeper catalyst for Potion in a few key ways:
1.) PR/Communications Management – Before opportunities present themselves, Potion always seeks to create the conditions where they can be made manifest by positioning itself as a well-regarded home for world-class creativity. The development producer does this by pro-actively managing Potion’s outward-facing media (social, website, and outside programming) with an eye toward raising our profile, strategically sharing our work and culture, and making sure we are active participants in the major events, award, and discussions in our industry and professional community.
2.) Client/Opportunity Management – When opportunities present themselves in the form of RFPs, RFIs, RFQs, phone inquiries, or other means, the Development Producer functions as the day to day manager and shepherd of that client’s project and the development of the opportunity to the point of SOW signing. The Development Producer must build both credibility as an individual and for Potion as a whole with an eye toward bringing the opportunity to Potion, and building a long-term relationship with the prospective client partner.
3.) Project Management – In addition to managing opportunities to the point that they become projects, as the title suggests, the Development Producer will also manage appropriate projects through their life cycle. This includes the standard responsibilities of a producer including serving as our client’s point-of-contact, managing client communications, product expectations, and representing the studio in day-to-day operations. Internally, the Producer manages the progress of our projects through each design phase, protects against scope creep, maintains the project schedule and budget and offers mentorship to Production Interns and Associate Producers.
