Assistant Producer with Shooting/Camera Assisting background, wrangling skills and producing shoots on a short turn around.

Experience shooting casting tapes, finding locations and clearing them, compliance training, conducting and shooting interviews and voxpops, building and coordinating shoot schedules, writing briefings and bios, conducting research chats and building relationships with contributors. Whilst wrangling and camera assisting, I gained experience shooting on different camera formats, using different technical and grip equipment and shooting in various styles such as interviews, B-Roll, actuality, GVs and "on-the-run".

I enjoy building a trusting relationship with contributors to make them feel comfortable working with me by being honest with them, keeping them abreast of the issues that sometimes crop up when filming (time changes, reschedules etc.) and creating a relaxed environment for them to put them at ease whilst on camera whilst coordinating the crew to keep an ergonomic production. When working with Talent, I try to do the same to keep things moving smoothly in a friendly working environment.

I find importance in keeping an open communication between production and editorial to maintain an effective workflow and keep evaluating this to achieve the most positive outcome.

In my spare time, I am a member of the Air Training Corps and RAF Volunteer Reserves. These organisations have helped me develop reliance, commitment, resourcefulness, graft and above all integrity - these characteristics are very important to me and I carry them onto whatever task I am given. I work a lot with young people and have a lot of responsibility whilst doing so and therefore conduct myself professionally but approachable.

I have a keen interest in history (particularly military), aviation, science, travel, world geography, culture, social and economic issues and education.

Full, Clean Driving Licence.
