job title suggestions
on Mar 22, 2007 at 2:51:35 am

I'm presenting a change in job title to my company which develops video games. When I started the job I transferred over from doing 3D, and since it was a new video position they gave me the title "Video Technician". I'm looking to change the title to reflect the creative and artistic aspects of the job, and I want it to sound like a step or two up from my current title to reflect the increase in pay that I'll also be requesting.

Here's what I do: My main work is capturing HD video and editing the footage in a music video style for use in trailers, and T.V. spots and other cuts for marketing purposes. I use Final Cut Pro for editing, Shake for compositing, DVD Studio Pro for authoring, Motion for creating animated DVD menus and particles for compositing into my cuts, and very rarely Soundtrack Pro for sound FX design. I'm responsible for setting up and maintaining all equipment and software since my IT dept. doesn't do Macs. I also shoot HD footage with an HVX-200 for "making of" videos and reference footage for animators.

I'm looking for suggestions on alternate job titles that encompass all of what I do. The caveat is that it most likely can't include "director" in the title since I'm the entire video department, so I have noone else working under me to direct; but maybe someone can think of an appropriate title that describes directing without implying the directing of other employees.

I forgot to mention that since I'm capturing footage from the game engines, I'm also responsible for setting up and operating the cg cameras for each shot.

I take it "lucky bastard" is not an option? :-)

How about "Video Magician" or "Video Sorcerer"? No. Hmmm. Video Producer?

"Hmmm. Video Producer?"

I'm not sure... What do you think? :)

Hmmm. How about "Digital Imagery Specialist" or "Motion Imagery Specialist"?

For those places where the titles can be less formal, "Digital Alchemist" might sum it up. ;-)

video editor (it's all editing to me)
digital video artist
vidiot
the dude (or dooder)
multi-tasking button-pushin' fool

get creative, man. It's just a title. Your business card will be the only place it's on. Personally, I have always liked "the dude."
