Hello, I regularly direct Location Location Location for Channel 4 along with shows such as Eat Well For Less, Come Dine With Me and Four In A Bed. I also have strong edit producing experience on shows such as Alan Titchmarsh - Love Your Garden for ITV 8pm. Prior to this I was a Senior Producer/Director at RDF for just over two years working on one of ITV’s most successful series.
 
As a former journalist/feature writer I can definitely write commentary and presenter links, conduct interviews, get cracking soundbites, identify stories and think on my feet. I  have extensive location experience and am as comfortable directing multi-cam shoots with jibs and steadicams, as I am hand-held single cameras or self shooters. I have bundles of experience working with presenters too.

I’m able to lead small teams of assistant producers, researchers and runners, and regularly work closely with them to help build their skillset and confidence. I have also been responsible for 50 plus people on location in the past. I have produced, directed and seen my shows through the entire filming process from pre production through to onlines, commentary records and final mixes including hour-long programmes, 45 minute episodes, half hours as well as VTs and shorts. I have experience of entertainment, formatted, factual, ob docs, sport, live, studio and reality series and have enjoyed them all.
 
I can turn my hand to established, long-running, fast turnaround series as well as high end drama. I have extensive experience filming actuality as it unfolds. While working on Dr Who Confidential I was on set of Dr Who for the entire series filming behind the scenes in a reality style. I had to follow the action of the scene as it happened and I only had one chance to capture it all naturally.  I had to think on my feet extensively and constantly react to what was happening on set and make decisions about which story to follow. It was quite typical to be following a few stories at once.

I have been running edits for more than 10 years now, so I am a very strong edit producer. I’ve ran three edits simultaneously in the past and have just finished running two at RDF. I’ve also cut other producer’s ob doc footage as well as multi cam rushes. I have worked as a P/D (including Edit Producer) on more than 30 one hour shows for the main terrestrial channels. 

As a former feature writer I can identify stories quickly and structure programmes with ease. I can turn my hand to all styles of voice over, I can spot a great soundbite and plough through interviews and hours of footage efficiently and quickly. I’m adept at spotting what elements are missing and feeding that back to the PD on location or can fill in the gaps with clever commentary if filming has finished. I really do know how to run an edit and maximise use of an Editor’s time.

I have been involved in many series where the production company wanted to revamp the look and feel of the show, so am very comfortable helping to establish new series. I have been involved at this level on shows such as Dickinson’s Real Deal and Bargain Hunt. I have also been brought in to work on brand new series where everything was yet to be established this includes shows such as Art School (BBC2) and Fool Around (T4/Channel 4). I’m used to leading edits and setting the tone and style of a series. 
 
I hope this gives you a better flavour of me! Oh and I enjoy travelling during the winter months!

Best wishes

Tracy
