• work together with composers (outsource): communicate the vision, receive and evaluate their work
• take part in actor auditions and take care of the whole Voice Over process

• follow trends and verify novelties, in order to update ways of creating audio and tools used by the team on that basis

You meet our expectations if you:
• have at least a few years of experience in audio or sound directing
• have created and implemented an audio vision for at least two AAA projects
• always strive for the best quality of your work, even against the limitations of technology or equipment
