Media Supervisor
Sarah Lawrence College

  • Project Details
    Sarah Lawrence College seeks a Media Supervisor that will serve two separate academic performance programs in Theatre and Dance. Both located in the Performing Arts Center, each program operates separately with its own curriculum, faculty, and performance season. Theatre and Dance, however, are often interwoven as students are encouraged to make work and take courses in both disciplines. Each program works together to consider the scheduling of season projects to avoid overlapping tech weeks and performances. The Theatre and the Dance Program are each communities of generous and engaged artists who value diverse, intentional, and rigorous research, process, and creation. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum that prioritizes equality, care, and experimentation, both strive to create an artistic environment steeped in joy to envision and build a responsible future.

    The Media Supervisor oversees all aspects of media in the performance spaces, productions, events, classrooms, and rehearsal studios of the Performing Arts Center. While supporting the needs of both Theatre and Dance productions, this position also includes an affiliate teaching faculty position in Theatre instructing two courses in Media Production and Design, enrolled with students from both Theatre and Dance.

    The Media Supervisor maintains sound and video in Performing Arts Center spaces, maintains media equipment budgets, schedules and oversees a student media crew, manages student employment of the media crew, and mentors individuals and teams of student media designers for the Theatre and Dance production seasons. All students taking sound and video courses and media crew members will work closely with the Media supervisor for advising on design projects, patching, and troubleshooting through a technical process. The Media Supervisor reports weekly to the Directors of the Theatre and Dance Programs regarding show builds, crew timelines, budgets, and updates on production elements.
