APPLICANT CHALLENGE: To help us better evaluate your capabilities and overall chemistry, we invite you to share a bit about yourself with creative responses to the following scenarios.
SHOW US HOW YOU WOULD RALLY THE TROOPS TO BLOW OUT AN OPENING WEEKEND: Imagine you are the community manager for Legion M which now stands at more than 50k members and growing steadily. Legion M has a new movie hitting theaters this weekend after almost a year of production ups and downs. It’s vital that this movie has a strong opening weekend to build momentum for future monetization windows. Having premiered at some prominent film festivals earlier this year, the movie has a polarizing effect on audiences. The result is either high-praise for the director’s unique approach and genre-bending subject matter or absolute slams from audiences and critics that simply do not get it.
In your heart, you believe this movie could present a seminal moment for the film industry and with enough momentum out of the gate, you firmly believe this movie could be a breakthrough success artistically and commercially. You have a Legion of 50k people willing to back you up and help make history. Send us a video of you describing one creative but realistic idea you would implement to motivate and rally this enthusiastic community of 50k people to give this movie the chance it deserves.
Don’t worry about the quality of the video, no points will be gained for production value, we are solely looking to see your personality and creativity come across. Please upload your video below.
SHOW US WHAT AN AWESOME COMMUNICATOR YOU ARE: Please submit existing writing samples (i.e. blog posts, articles, etc.) or if you don’t have anything on hand, write a short piece (500 words or less) about one of your favorite movies, and why we should go see it?
SHOW US HOW YOU BANTER: A huge part of this job is communicating on social media where attention spans are short and space is limited. Pretend for a moment that you are managing the Legion M Facebook page and there are three posts you need to respond to. Answer them, the same way you would on Facebook (assuming the option to delete or hide the post doesn't exist).
- What is Legion? I've never heard of it.
- Hey Bro! Will you guys fund my movie?
- WHY DOES LEGON DO LIVE AMINAL TESTING ON ENGENDERD ANIMALS!!!!. WHY YOU WANT TO FILL THE WORL WITH YOUR HATE?!?!? PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE ME SICK.
SHOW US SOME LOL: This is wide open, share one of your favorite jokes, funny stories, or anything that will make us laugh.
