So folks, each time I finish a contract, harder and harder to get next one. I do know this is because I’m older, doing a less senior job (having stayed home a long time with kids (late teens now) AND because I have such a varied CV and really don’t enjoy parts of coordinating. Love the logistics, looking after people like the crews, directors etc but would prefer to be back closer to the action, like I used to be! I rarely act my age (no I’m not telling you), always problem solve and laugh too! Can write and spell anything, 60% fluent in French, always learning. Am I a risk? Nah, I’m an asset! Just need the right sort to recognise it ?

I recently worked as a Prod Coordinator for Naked Entertainment, working alongside casting team casting contributors and organising two PD teams' callsheets, hotels, hire cars and travel. Petty cash, P/O’s etc...

Prior to this, I worked as coordinator//2nd AD and more on a low budget BBC3/You Tube Channel shoot which was, in reality, a large undertaking with limited resources. We had 28 cast and day-to-day location changes. I drew up the call sheet each day and coordinated cast and crew's movements - where everyone was, needed to be and resolving all issues regarding each day's shoot. All of this I am great at. Logistics. Organisation. Keeping the artistes happy. However I lack post prod paperwork and drawing up budgets skills (though I can keep to them). I've been back at work for the past few years having been mainly at home with my girls (now late teens). I am open to other ideas outside Prod Sec/Jr Coordinator roles such as Casting Researcher - I am multi-skilled with amazing and valuable experience...great with communications and people. Flexible, versatile - I'll fit in with you..!
On Dave Gorman's Modern Life is Goodish, I covered: organising dry run schedules for rehearsals, call sheets and working out on shoots - recruiting the public for various pranks; credit card and petty cash reconciliations; Working on main RX day - sorting teas, coffees, dressing rooms, chairs, food, water. An absolutely all-encompassing role with daily organisation of transport, hotels etc and locations too. Prior to this, I was working as a Drama Assistant/Production Secretary - sourcing props, background artists, hotels, helping set up shoot, working with the Director and AP on the shoots as well as doing the call sheet, unit lists, release forms etc and dealing with expenses/float. I am quick-thinking, versatile and a bubbly person who has worked in many arenas - from live television in light entertainment, to episodic drama and theatrical film, covering roles from Floor Manager and 2nd AD to production office roles.
I have completed Carbon Free Training with Albert.org.

In a corporate role, I worked as PA to the VP & 4 Directors, looking after 60 people, booking travel, expenses, meetings, company credit card reconciliation, organising office internal and external events. I had to learn their software in order to authorise expenses, book meeting rooms and plan people's work in. I managed the facilities, starters/leavers, Health & Safety and even trained as a Fire Marshall and First Aider!
Before all of this creativity, I worked as a Market Maker on the Stock-market floor in the 80's (the 10th woman amongst 1500 men), but my main career has been 20 years freelancing in film and tv production.
I'm married to an independent film producer and when I'm between jobs, I work from home for him, doing his diaries, travel, phone calls - and between us we do Budgets and Schedules on Movie Magic when required.

(And finally - before the Big Brother days - when you didn't have to be 'known' to be a presenter - I was offered a presenting job on a strand for "This Morning" - I'd done a great show-reel with bits of work for a cable channel reviewing movies. I know how to talk to camera - my floor managing has taught me well. So - despite me being older, despite this being an ageist industry - if anyone wants a mature but bonkers Light Entertainment person - I'm your (wo)man....!) Read Less
