Olive Boland

Production Buyer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I started working in art department roles in the summer of 2016, and have since worked in feature films, short films, commercials, live events, immersive theatre, and television. Now a fully fledged production buyer with a view to become a set decorator; it's the most fulfilling feeling transforming sets and seeing the fruits of your labour transition onto screen or in front of an audience.

I am personally drawn to attention to detail and composition. There's really nothing more satisfying than working within a super talented creative team that can really pull a rabbit out of a hat!

I graduated from the the School of Arts and Digital Industries at UEL with a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Fine Art, majoring in photography, but spent a lot of time developing a strong sense of form through line drawing and blind drawing.

One of my strongest assets from my previous Producer and Production Manager days is my hawk-eye attention to detail, organisational and budgeting skills. I have 6 years previous experience with production roles such as Producer / Production Manager / Production Coordinator and Assistant. I have in-depth experience as a Producer in a content agency working directly with brands and also in collaboration with ad agencies. Within feature films I have worked as a PM, PC, and PA in features under the guidance of Line Producer Michael Constable, and Production Manager Filiz-Theres Erel.
