More about me

I am most effective in the role of producer as I am responsible, organised, decisive, articulate, creative and excellent at problem solving. I work very well in every and any team I am a part of. I am efficient in organising and managing a team, and also in procuring filming permissions for hard to obtain locations (e.g. Abandoned Swimming Pool and Southport Cemetery). I am professional and persistent. I make backup plans. I keep my team updated at each and every step of the project. I have excellent time management. I am resourceful, flexible and I have excellent people skills. I am also a writer. I believe discussion is key, I am cooperative, passionate, understanding and always willing to learn. I take my research seriously and I work to a strict schedule. I take on any and all constructive criticism. I make sure to adhere to recognised story structures and naturalistic dialogue styles.
