I am a Cornwall/Cardiff based, Development Executive and multi-skilled Producer.

I have a strong mix of production and development under my belt which has allowed me to gain a great understanding of programme-making from the ground up.

I am an experienced shooter (FS7), location and story producer having worked on a range of programming from cookery formats to prime time obs docs and absolutely love being on location and part of a crew.

I have secured several funded developments and commissions including a series with Stacey Dooley for W Channel. I am hugely ambitious in my ideas and have a flare for fact ent, entertainment and reality formats. I have been lucky enough to pitch my ideas directly to commissioners at a range of PSBs & SVODs. I have produced, shot and cut over 60 taster tapes that have been highly commended by commissioners and been key to securing commissions.

I use my resourcefulness, intuition, boundless energy and creativity to go above and beyond in any role I undertake. Read Less

Hollie is a first class development AP with a particular skill for editing sizzles to support pitches primarily, but not exclusively, from ‘found footage’.

Hollie produced a constant stream of original ideas while working in the popular factual and daytime development team at STV.

Her creative thinking however was not confined by conventional genre definitions and she showed real ability to introduce strong elements of entertainment and comedy into her development of projects.

Hollie is a very good team player and was always extremely diligent in working up and adding value to concepts which come from other members of the team.

Liam Hamilton

Hollie was a pleasure to work with and has a great development mind with lots of good new ideas. She's also a great writer and produced and cut a number of excellent tasters for us. Would definitely work with her again.

Alex Turner

Hollie is an extremely hard working individual with bags full of energy and endless enthusiasm for any task she is faced with. She's a great team player who can also be relied on to support new members of the team. She has great instincts when casting and can be trusted to nurture a contributor throughout the filming process.Her initiative when dealing with contributors, locations and other editorial matters is brilliant, making her a valuable member of any team.
