As I am just starting out in production I have a varied skills set. I tend to get asked to work with Pre or Production, Producing or Assistant Directing. This could be due to my organisational and meticulous nature. I am fond of spreadsheets and colour co-ordinated sheets of paper.
I enjoy planning and researching subjects and exploring human nature in general, this could be due to my academic background in Criminology. I studied screenwriting and I am concious of good storytelling when helping people with their projects.
As someonewho has worked within a business and administration I tend to be mindful of budgeting and accounting.
For me, filmmaking is a creative process where many different people all work together to help acheive one vision. I love watching and learning from other professionals, from directors right though to grips. In film making I believe I am always learning something new, and I love it.
