The Job role I have looked at is editorial side of  a magazine. I have looked at this because I do enjoy making magazines. I did do my FMP last year on a magazine which took a while to do , as I had so much information , but it was good fun designing a magazine how I wanted it to look. It's all bout the layout , colour , images how there going to be positioned , text as well and other stuff as well. It be good to write you're own articles about the latest gossip or whatever.It be good to get you're work published out there for the public to read. I enjoyed making a magazine , this is idea of a job for a career. 

What's it all about:

Magazines are about the publishing side of getting you're work out there . Magazines are about articles, commissioning, administrating and a lot of planning is involve because you need to decide on how you're article is going to look , so you have to decide on what layouts you're going to use so what works works well, you have to decide on how you want the font to look so for e.g big or small , colours , and how the images are going to look(best to have the images around the text). When joining the magazine crew you work with the senior staff , on the main elements Commissioning , Planning , Administrating and Production Work of achieving a successful magazine .When working at a magazine business , it depends on the company on what the project is and how big the project is.

Postgraduate who has finished education who wants to proceed in further so into higher education level can do courses such as editorial (publishing) that involve placements and getting a contract with someone who works in a magazine will provide a good experience. You will get to meet other people too along the way who works in  magazines. Pre entry certificate or postgraduate qualification in journalism maybe acceptable for entry position. With magazines it is all about writing your own stuff about a subject.

Here I have found a few websites that will help with becoming a editorial magazine. The publishing training center provides all sorts of courses for editorial side of publishing , marketing , advertising and grammar etc for publishing a magazine .The publishing center provides high quality standards of training across the UK . The publishing center is well known for excellence in the publishing industry.

  Here I have found another website that helps with publishing you're own work , with the use of training involve . They have over 7000 staff all over the world . Macmillan  is one of the largest and best known international groups. It does meet the high standards of education , fiction and non-fiction publishing forms with providing courses.

When working in the media industry , it can be hard as you are working against other companies with bigger or smaller promotions . It can be tense as you know that you have to up you're game. In the media industry today you have to show of you're skills with using you're best advantage of producing high standards of you're work . The company may push you to develop you're work even further of a successful
 editorial person . It has said that editors often become their own manager , where it leads to a much calmer route. Some editors do work from home , whether it's to be closer to family , or you want to work for yourself . Freelances have a benefit of  getting the magazines done in you're own sort of time , still having a social life so there is no need to travel . Free lance rates vary , there is a benefit of holiday pay , sick pay , pension and maternity cover . As you're out in the wide world you do start to make contacts with working with other people as well, who can help you explore the world of different contacts that means they may have a job that you are looking for . 

Here I have looked at the Prospects website to find out the information on the job description and working activities that you must be able to do within the job. This is a good website for finding a career that you want to take on in your life . 

Here I have used the editorial side of a magazine of what the job description is . An editor can take more than one role when becoming a editor for a magazine so for e.g advertising , editorial , researcher editor, the press , journalist  and commissioning etc which all link together when promoting and advertising .

This shows all different agencies that work around the UK , that gives skills of publishing  printing and marketing etc. The jobs will help you prepare yourself for the media industry.They all have the professional standards who will help you achieve what you want and will teach you onto a successful career in editorial , marketing, journalist, fiance  and editor etc. There's all different jobs within the media sector that you can choose from . The jobs at the agencies you can work part time or full time depending on the company .

It's always good to gain portfolio showing of you're work so for e.g photographs , magazine articles , short films ,radio and you're skills with sending you're work to companies .It's a great way to show of you're talent with showing it in a book with it being presented professionally. It be good idea to attend workshops to help you find out what it is really like with being practical so the tasks that are needed to be done and also with talking to the people who work in the industry . Events are good with showing off you're work so competitions are good way to get you're work seen . Here it shows I have looked at website to create a portfolio , it has information on about film studies so you can research further in the film industry .You can see on there as other people have published their work to the site as well. The BBC will get you're noticed . You may find yourself being un paid if you do work experience . Competition of works is everywhere , you have to up your game so you need to be ready to work hard . Networking is essential so you have different contacts. You should send you're CV  to as many production companies as you can . Then follow up with a phone call to show you're committed to the job role .

Average salary's are around £26,000. After to 10 - 15 years , senior editors salaries range from about £23,000 to £40,000, with higher salary's possible in the larger publishing . Working hours can be very long 9-5 with some extra hours , often without payment , for overtime. Work may involve extra hours as deadlines approach and need to be done dead on the deadline .     

Code of Practice:
It's said that you must not give any in accurate information about a person when publishing about them in an article.Your not allow to let any information or even pictures to be misleading, you can't say anything that will ruin their reputation so for e.g if they tell you something in confidence . The editor has to have a lot of respect for their people who they are writing about . If there is anything that you have put in there you're senior manager looks at it and if he notices something about it you have to correct it straight away ; you will have to write a apology which will have to published on the article at the bottom of the page .The editor has the right to protect and to keep some information private,if they spill it out in the magazine then that is known as defamation. Depending on the editor they could make it out more than it needs to be . The editor will have to justify it with their people first before it is broadcasted and published out into the world .The editors (photographers) have to get permission from the person before they take a picture . Journalist's they must not intimidate or harass the person, if they want to decline on the situation. If they are asked to leave  they should do so immediately without question. The editors and journalist's have to respect these people and they must ensure that they meet these principles and perform in the right manner . Journalist's have the right to protect each individual and protect a persons confidential sources of information .

They run a variety of activities and services . BFI has a database where you can type into the search bar about the history , the different types of film companies.

With this you don't need a degree you just need a portfolio and dedication to show you're skills. 

Free Lance Work:

Most of  video /film editors today are employed on freelance basics where they are working on a short term contract.  Editors may work on different variety's on post production so programs , films , music and advertising etc . The final stage of  the process requires to have skills produced online who is working in specialist post production . The editors  are responsible for their final product, the required specifications that are needed . The skills required will be colouring ,special effects  and footage to a finish film production whether it is online or offline. Freelances in the other stages look at their equipment and they may extend their skills into camera or sound work to keep them employed to get some contacts . For freelances career  you can make money from home if you're self-employed by editing you're own work and then publishing it . They always start off from a small production then it soon reaches to big projects . It's always good  to have  a good relationship with directors ,editors and production managers. It all pays off in the end as you start to meet new people and you will have a variety of contacts . More of a career development starts when you see you have the experience to proceed further with the skills required and bring practical strategies with you . The media industry is all about getting contacts , the people who you work with may provide you with a contact or even themselves may sign you up if you have the basics skills there looking for . The hours can be long as you're there editing away it takes time to get it perfect .

Here I have looked at the Prospects website to find out the information on the job description and  the work activities that you must be able to do within the job. This is a good website for finding a career that you want to take on in your life .

Here I have used the film/video of what the job description is . A film/video is an editor can take more than one role when becoming a editor for film /video so for e.g broadcasting ,TV operator , floor manager , runner , production assistant and film/video producer . They all work together on different floors within the company to work together on broadcasting a TV program, there's all these different elements that take place on center stage and behind the scenes.

This shows all  the different agencies that work around the UK , that gives skills on what to expect from the media industry. They help you with providing their skills to the test with helping you out in the media industry. The jobs will help you prepare yourself for the media industry.They all have the professional standards who will help you achieve what you want and will teach you to a successful career in being a professional film editor. There's all different jobs within the media sector that you can choose from . The jobs at the agencies you can work part time or full time depending on the company .

Salary: /Hours:
The starting salary's range from £18,000 - £25,000 for those employed by a television or post -production studio .With experience the salaries can range from £20,000 -£35,000 . Range of typical salary's at senior levels is at £37,000 - £70,000, if there working on a high project then they will get more money . Editors who work as freelancers are paid on contact basics . Hours vary depending on the production and may be standard office hours .Shift work may be involved if editing studios are booked at night. When there are deadlines to meet , long hours will be involved and overtime may be required .   

Code of Practice: 
Before the program is broadcasting it needs to be fully justified with writing a report about it . It must be accompanied by a recording report, editorially justified and complaint before delivery .The programs must be used with a HD Cam or a SR stereo . The program must be delivered to Reaps Reversioning unit .    
The programs should be made to the BBC'S obligations. You should take care when editing the final product.You need to make sure that you have edited it right into the right standards , once you send it for delivery that is it and it's then branding into the BBC so there's no going back . It needs to be in the right format Mov , before being signed off to delivery . It needs to be copied by the BBC Executive and signed off a form before it is delivered. It's always a good idea to have the script production list with the report .It can be useful to sub-tilers in advance as it helps with the submitting process. An accurate transmission form must be filled out so it ensures the correct program is transmitted from the right output area. The BBC handles loads of these so a thousand tapes a week . All the music and sound effects used in the programe must be reported  this will meet the agreement of the BBC with the copyright.

Free Lance Work:

Most people in the media industry work as free lances and run their own work as a small business. This means that business is done in you're own hands without a time limit . It focuses more on the carer you want to lead without being pressurized into getting the task done. You can set out you're own goals , you can get things done in you're own time as well as having a social life . But it can lead to a quiet life as you're working for yourself which can be quiet .With free lance you have a quieter life of people not telling you what to do because that can be stressful getting it done on a strict time limit . James Smith is a runner working on strictly come dancing over 2 years.When he first joined he wanted to be runner, he sent out 170 letters to two different production companies and the BBC got back to him first .A person from the BBC - Helen Bishop got back to him, she looked at his CV and put it out to Strictly. His ideal job would be floor manager ( Al Conley )"best floor manager" he said he works well with the crew and  the talent.

Here is the BBC website it shows you can apply to the BBC online . They offer 1,700 work experience a year , covering all the types of work they offer . You can easily search and apply for the job roles you're interested in .

Here I have looked at the Prospects website to find out the information on the job description and  the work activities that you must be able to do within the job. This is a good website for finding a career that you want to take on in your life . 

Here I have looked at a Runner /broadcasting film and video of what the job description is . A runner works with other teams with the floor manager , broadcast engineer , broadcast presenter , and television production assistant etc .

Here I have looked onto the Agency Central it shows the jobs of a runner in London with earning£20,000-25,000 a year . It depends on the growth of the client and what skills they have got to offer to the job . The job position is a job manager which works on the floor and as well as being a runner . They need to have a degree. You must be able to use Microsoft word , excel , power point and office . It be better if you had an interest in design.The jobs you will do are studio runner , answering phones from clients and other people , desk research , maintaining office supplies and etc .

Salary: /Hours:
A salary for a runner have increased a little bit over the past few years. The average starting salary for a runner is approximately £7-£8 per hour . Most of them are freelancers but are employed full time or on a short contact . The hours can be long as hell and unpredictable, often up to six days a week during the production . Broadcasting is 24 hours operation  and the working style reflect this . You may have to work nights , weekends and public holiday's . Film and TV shoots often want to make the most of the daylight for filming so early mornings and late nights are common occurrence .   

Code Of Practice:
You will have to obey what you're manager wants you to do . You have a role of keeping an eye of you're clients to make them feel at home, getting drinks, ordering food and etc . If you don't obey with these roles , if you turn really against it then that is going to look bad on the company and it won't look good on you either.You're manager won't be too impressed by you're actions, then deep consequences will have to made depending on what the situation is for e.g swearing , shouting at the clients- taking it out on them if you're having a bad day, you may be sacked from the job . This won't give a professional look at all , it could ruin their reputation as a company. I don't think you're team will be happy,so just get the job done and obey the rules on what you have been asked to do then you'll be fine .
