I have worked with some of the most prominent producers, directors, actors and assistant directors during my stay in London. I am an experienced set PA, with an understanding of a plethora of departments and roles. I strive to go above and beyond at every available opportunity, I am experienced in: distributing call sheets and managing paperwork, arranging meetings, crowd/background control, wrangling talent, helping move equipment, facilitating communication between departments, distributing radios and organising travel and accommodation to name just a small amount. I’ve spent more 14 hour days in the freezing cold being harassed by wind, rain, and members of the public than I care to count and yet I’m still incredibly passionate for and dedicated to the film industry.
The services that I can offer are: excellent communication skills, determination, perseverance, organisational skills, administrative skills and IT skills.
Production Assistant, Production Coordinator
Abu Dhabi, UAE
I have five years of production experience in my hometown of New York City, on projects ranging from promotional videos to feature film. I started on the History Channel series “”The Men Who Built America,”” to help with wrap. After this, I joined a boutique production company as a producer’s assistant. I procured crew, locations, permits, and services such as production insurance from external vendors. During production, I was in charge of work permits, petty cash, catering, transportation and other rentals, and acted as 2nd AD. In between, I enjoyed performing similar duties on many short films while attending NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where I graduated with a BFA in Film and Television Production. I recently relocated to Abu Dhabi and had the opportunity to work for the 2017 Dubai International Film Festival. The role was fast-paced and required constant problem-solving. Most importantly, it gave me an idea of the industry in the region, which I look forward to expanding on set.
