I'm an extremely versatile Assistant Producer, wether it be in the office, on location or in the studio. My expertise lie in fact checking, Casting, maintaining difficult relationships, organisation and general helping the team morale. I have an excellent phone manner and have excellent organisational skills, using spreadsheets for almost everything, just in case other people need to know what I am or they are doing at a later date.

I have excellent casting experience, from glamour models for advertisements to needle in a haystack casting with vulnerable homeless people, people with special needs and extremely sensitive casting for Crime Stories, For example, finding families that have been torn apart by murder and asking them to talk about it, maintaining these relationships and offering them constant support, in particular one case, it hit the headlines again, while we were filming and the mothers chose to ask for my help, of which, I obviously still give.

As you can see from my CV I also thrive in the creative side of television, I have often been an integral part of a team that has come up with ideas that have been broadcast, right from the development & planning stages, creative meetings, setting up interviews, securing locations and generally getting the pre production right through to post.

I also have a lot of experience in the post production process, fact checking, dealing with compliance lawyers, using ITN source and sigma, for archive footage and helping the edit producer get through the process to online.

I can also shoot on C300, FS7 and XF305. Read Less

Proactive, problem solving & professional.

Having worked with Gideon on a swath of projects over the course of a year I can say he's one of the keenest, most open people I've worked with. A great all rounder who you would want on your team.

Great on location, in the suite and working the phone for pre-production.

Chris Skarratt - Deputy MD (Silversun Media Group)
