In my position as a digital producer for CBC Kids, CBC Parents, CBC Kids Social (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest) and CBC Kids Youtube, the list of things I do adds variety to my role and is ever-evolving.
I write for kids and adults, package pieces, copy edit, video edit, pitch projects, manage stats, produce and direct video content in-studio and over Unity, and have even won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Live Production, Social Media for our Facebook Live event: CBC Kids Kindie Class of 2020.
Oh and I forgot — sometimes the team I’m working with include Gary the Unicorn and Mr. Orlando the security moose.
