Assistant Director Trainee

  • Location: Brighton
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

Welsh born aspiring Assistant Director, since graduating from Brighton Film School in June 2017 I've been fortunate enough to gain paid work experience on numerous features, shorts and corporate work in various roles. In February I was accepted onto Creative Skillset’s Film Trainee Finder Scheme as an Assistant Director trainee.
My primary goal is to work on larger productions as a runner with experienced AD's to learn from the ground up.
