With 35 years proffesional experience in the film industry.
As a 1st Assistant Director I see my role as integral and vital to any production – being the Director’s support, the Producer’s Representative, and the Crew’s motivation. Having worked my way up through the ranks, my day-to-day perspective is fueled by years of hands-on experience within various disciplines of the industry.
Fundamental attributes of being a First AD, as I see it, are to anticipate where delays or problems could occur, and to take steps in advance to prevent them. Also to ensure that the AD team under my supervision is a hub that allows information to travel in all directions between the technical, creative and logistical teams, to hopefully accomplish works of art. In addition to this, flexibility is key due to constantly changing logistics. To this end, I am painfully aware that schedules must be adhered to for budgetary reasons.
Specialties: Ability to give orders effectively and adaptable to change at short notice.
Appart from the normal work, I work with all sorts of animals and children. Car shoots and stunts are part of my every day work.
