Job Video – Cat’s Corner is Hiring a Studio Manager

In the spirit of Akoha‘s Python Wranger video, I too am going to give video recruiting a try… Many of you might not know I’m the founder of Cat’s Corner, one of the most beloved dance schools in Montreal, and we’re hiring. So here we are, a video job ad for our open Studio Manager position:

Making this video was fun and easy. Etienne from E Motion Productions came to our studio and went right to work, shooting all the raw dancing footage in about one hour. The shooting for the talking parts of the video took another two hours, for a total of about three hours of shooting time. After all the raw footage was taken, it took Etienne a total of about two days to do all the editing and voila; magic!

I was concerned at the beginning about how much effort it might take from my already overloaded staff to produce the video, but it turned out to be minimal when you have the help of a professional videographer. Besides, it was fun for everybody involved! I do hope in the video we’ve shown that we’re a fun bunch of people to work with.

I’d love to hear your comments so please comment below… and please let your friends know if you think they might be a good fit for this position.

The full job description follows (also available on the Cat’s Corner website in English and en Français).

    Excellent choice of “60 Minute Man” for the advertisement, that song is very smooth to dance to, one of my favorites.

    BTW, I’m not certain but I believe I saw one of the male swing dancers in the video just this past evening at the Jam Cellar in Washington, D.C. Small (swing) world!
