The ideal candidate will be a practising filmmaker, screenwriter, or digital media storyteller with professional experience in film, television, games, and/or digital/interactive storytelling. Experience with narrative storytelling in film, television, or new media is an asset.
It will be important to the Norwegian Film School and to the experts whom the school consults to assess the applications that it is possible to obtain a good impression of the applicant's artistic qualifications for carrying out the project. It will therefore be decisive that emphasis is placed on good documentation of these qualifications through the presentation of previous artistic activity and other relevant material.
Applications must either document recognised competence at assistant professor level in the artistic field in question through a confirmed transcript of an expert opinion, or alternatively, documentation material must be enclosed that can form the basis for carrying out such an assessment in connection with the assessment of other aspects of the application. Such documentation will have many similarities with that required in the section above. Completion of a Master of Fine Arts programme in a relevant field will also count as such documentation.
Documentation can include letters of reference, acceptance letters from festivals, competitions and the like, IMDB-listings, features/reviews from mass media, and the like. It is important that all relevant experience and artistic works are properly documented.
The candidate will spend a great deal of time working independently, and must demonstrate excellent organisational abilities. In addition, the candidate must possess excellent oral and written presentation skills in either Norwegian (or a Scandinavian language) or English. In addition, the candidate must possess good collaborative and interpersonal skills. It is expected that the candidate is able to act as a creative inspirator to others.
