These films can be both hard news and news feature films about current affairs in Burma. The job requires putting together packages with the footage and interviews we receive from inside Burma, subtitling Burmese sound bites and where necessary, arranging and filming English language interviews with analysts to support the footage we already have. You will also manage the Youtube and Vimeo account and sometimes raw footage will need to be uploaded and embedded within news stories.
