JOB ALERT: Rapid Pictures seeking a Runner *FILLED*

Posted by on May 25, 2017 in Blog

Busy West London Post Production facility Rapid Pictures requires a highly motivated London based Runner to start in the next few weeks for a 10 month contract (£16K per annum pro-rata)

This is not a stepping stone into Production, so please only apply if you are interested in working your way up to become an editor (via the tech department). We are very keen to train and promote internally and provide a really enjoyable, collaborative working environment. Check out @rapidpictures on twitter for our social highlights!

To be considered, you must be hard working, eager to take on a challenge, polite and have a positive attitude towards everything. A good sense of humour is essential and the ability to put people at ease.
Hospitality or catering experience would also be a massive advantage.

You will be expected to take turns on reception, look after clients, make beverages, keep things looking tidy and will be rewarded with a friendly and enjoyable working environment. As long as you put the hours in and have an enthusiastic approach to post production, there will be lots of opportunities to learn the ropes.

When applying please include why you are different from other applicants, why you are interested in post production rather than production and what your end goal in television is.
Please apply with a covering letter to

I just wanted to say a massive thankyou for getting us over the line on Your Garden Made Perfect (and of course Homes)
I just wanted to pass on a little note from our BBC Commissioning Editor which specifically applies to the grade, but is echoes through the detail and finessing achieved with the online and the amazing soundscape.
“… the show looks spectacular. The grade has done a phenomenal job – please do thank the colourist for me…”

The idea of delivering an HDR series to Amazon without stepping into a cutting room was somewhat daunting but Radiant made the entire experience seamless. The sound and pictures were, I’ve no doubt, the best they could possibly be thanks to Ben, Andy and their creative team. Working with them is always a pleasure but this time, they exceeded all expectations.

It’s always great working at Rapid. They’re brilliant technically and nothing’s a problem. They made a very long, complicated series easy!

Rapid really exceeded all expectations I had for the two months I spent there. All the staff I encountered took great pride in their work and the company - they create such a positive and friendly atmosphere. The facilities themselves are flawless; support was always immediate and effective. I’d return in a heartbeat.

Few post houses combine homeliness with professionalism.
Rapid gives both and more.
