Currently available as a Skillset Trainee 2017-2018.

I have been freelancing as a Runner/PA for the past 12 months and have been fortunate to work on a broad range of productions accross film, drama and entertainment, but I am eager to gain further experience and develop my professional skillset within Costume.

My first role within Costume was assisting 'Transformers 5'  prepare for a large period crowd scene, assisting with crowd fittings and costume logistics. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to assist with the fitting and dressing of >400 crowd, each with intricate costume.  It was especially interesting to see how much attention to detail goes into dressing every single induvidual for a scene, regardless of the numbers involved.

I enjoy working both on-set and within the costume warehouse and particularly enjoy dressing and looking after Crowd. I love working in the demanding, fast-paced working environment which you find on most productions. 

My Locations department background has given me a practical grounding in how a production operates and I'm not afraid to get stuck in on any level.
