My Work Printer friendly CV

I am an experienced 1st AD and have worked on a wide variety of feature films, drama and commercials, often involving coordination of crowds, fight scenes, driving shoots, stunt sequences, prosthetics and special effects.
I am a qualified Covid supervisor (Screen Skills, 1st Option and APA trainings completed) and 1st AD work since Covid includes feature films like "A Banquet" (Tea Shop Productions), 11 music videos for Wolf Alice (Academy Films), and more commercial and drama projects, all successfully completed under strict Covid safety protocols.  
I enjoy all the responsibilities of organisation: scheduling, coordination, time keeping and communication. With a broad practical knowledge of the various roles involved in film making, I am well aware of the vagaries of production in all its aspects and am excellent at anticipating and mitigating problems before they arrive.
I’ve got excellent scheduling and script breakdown skills, and I am very familiar with handling challenging shoots.
I thrive on team work and problem-solving, and am well-used to working long hours under pressure. I have been praised for my ability to maintain high morale, whilst getting the job done on schedule.
