If you don’t know to which port you’re sailing, no wind is favourable. – Lucius Seneca
To my mind, assistant directing is one of the most varied and interesting jobs there is. The challenge of getting the most out of any shoot combined with the artistic ambitions, financial imperatives and wild locations make it great work. I get a lot of satisfaction from working with and leading teams through the production process.
Before specialising in assistant directing I worked in many other roles such as camera assistant and producer and bring my knowledge of these crafts to the position. I’ve AD’d on a wide range of film and television projects, shorts, commercials and music videos and also specialise in scheduling for projects in development or early preproduction.
