Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

I’ve been told that I have an extremely good work ethic and that I tend to adapt very easily to new surroundings and to working with new people. I have strong attention to detail especially regarding documentation and paperwork such as call sheets and other important production documents.

I have spent a lot of time over the past two years producing my own content from low budget TVC’s and online content videos, to music videos and short films. During this time I have worked with a number of different agencies and freelancers, and have started to build a network. I believe my roles in these productions, although smaller budget and scale, have been so important in grooming me for large scale productions and projecting me towards my goal of becoming a production manager/line producer and one day a producer on significant projects. 

My producing background has enabled me to think logically and problem solve at a higher level. I believe that these skills and experiences will be perfectly translated into a production secretary or production assistant role on large productions. 

I am currently based in Melbourne but will happily relocate to Hobart or Sydney temporarily for the right opportunity. I have accomodation in Hobart Tasmania if need be.
