Recruiting New Core Staff! (Script Editor)

Written by 
Recruiting New Core Staff! (Script Editor)

With the new release schedule we plan on implementing in 2012, we are looking for more core members, so that we may be able to get releases out even faster!

The Script Editor position is actually quite lenient with the requirements, so if you think you even have a sliver of desire to be a fansubber, apply! Even if you only have time to do one show per season, apply! Even if you have NO experience, apply! Check after the break for our full position details!

So, what exactly is a Script Editor? A Script Editor consists of the traditional fansub tasks of Timing, Editing, and Quality Control. This position will not have to do any translating, encoding, or karaoke. Why am I calling it a Script Editor? Because I have no better name for this position ^.^

For this new position, I have developed a test that each applicant must take. This will test your skills in taking a pre-made ASS script from a TV-Rip and timing it to a BD-Rip, then choose typsetting to fit the show, and editing the English for better fluency.

Most of the test is described in the instructions file contained in the test package below, so I won't spend much time discussing it here. If you are already freaking out because there's a test... calm down. Even though, the instructions are long and detailed, the test is actually MUCH easier than it seems :)

I am not looking for a 10-year veteran of fansubbing. Even if you are a complete newbie, we're willing to help you grow. The only requirements that you must already have are a good grasp on the English Language and a good eye for great typsetting. Well... as long as you're not stupid or annoying to teach :P

If you are interested, be sure to download the test package and follow the instructions provided. If you want to take a look at the instructions only, they are provided seperate from the full package as well. Good Luck, and I look forward to seeing all your results.

One detail that is not included in the Instructions is that the DEADLINE for all applications test results must be submitted by December 15, 2011.

Hi Ametatsu.
I have sent you an email inquiring about the script editing/QC position.
# Sammy | 2011-10-10 22:42
Can we apply for just editing, just QC, etc?

If you email me at with your details, I'll keep you on a list in case we do need just an editor or QC. The chance of that is actually higher than you think :P
