Mel Brown

Stills Producer

Printer friendly CV

I am an experienced and proactive team player. Using skill sets I have developed as a production manager in live action and as a stills photographer, we get to access the best of both worlds. With a passion for team work, growth ad achieving a goal, I thrive on making the ideas and concepts in the brief walk from the page into reality. Having worked as a full time employee and also as a freelancer, I am a versatile, adaptable team player, with empathy for understanding both sides of any team dynamic, armed with a wealth of experience working in teams of all sizes, on a variety of creative projects around the world, I can fit in with any creative team and find a way to encourage all of our strengths to shine through.

I have a solution-orientated, positive attitude with a patient and strategic approach to problems. I am eager to learn new skills from those around me and with a transparent, honest, empathetic approach to life, I take great pride and care in the work that I do, and the people that I work with.
