[job] Cool screensaver artist seeks summer assistants

I’m passing this along for my frien=
d Cathy Davies.  She’s a great person to know- well connected in the te=
ch/ art world and a cool person in general.  Her current endeavor&=
nbsp;is making arty screen savers.  The pay’s not exceptional, but the =
job is *very* flexible, and could easily be combined with another full/part-=
time job.

I’m seeking two part-=
time assistants for my small photography/software business.
This is a pai=
d position at $10/hour. Assistants will work with me eight hours one day per=
week — the day of the week is up to you, and weekends are a possibility.My studio is located in Highland Park, 90042.

rong Photoshop skills
Basic familiarity with web page construction, publi=
shing, HTML
Familiarity with Flash, Illustrator, Aperture, After Effects,=
Actionscript 3, other programming or visual applications a BIG PLUS.
d writing skills

What you’ll do:
This is an artist’s assistant pos=
ition — but it is also a position at a small company.
It’s good for your=
resume for both reasons, and an excellent position for current students.We’ll be working on building, testing, and marketing new screensaver applic=
ations, so you’ll have an opportunity to learn new software skills, and get =
first hand experience with how a small business works. You’ll help solve bot=
h technical and creative problems. There will be boring stuff like tracking =
stats and accounting, and exciting stuff like shooting in the field, and lau=
nching a new product.
