Joburg, South Africa
I am an experienced line producer that has worked on local and international feature films and have also produced a feature film commissioned by a broadcaster. In addition I have worked on documentaries as well. I am a team leader that possess strong planning skills and I have the ability to set and meet objectives with my team. I excel at working under pressure and have developed a skill set and administrative tools that enables me to manage a budged in real time (cost reports on hand) and to identify possible problems in advance. Standard tasks I perform include drafting & managing a production budged (also various departments), scheduling, logistics, locations, releasing payments, hiring cast and crew, dealing with suppliers and gear, overseeing production during principle (keeping the production within budged and on schedule) and problem solving. I am available 24/7 during pre-prod & principle and are open to travel to most locations. I have also started to facilitate the process to bring low budged international productions to South Africa for filming (converting US dollars in South Africa will result in a BIG budged, $1 000 000 will translate to more than R14 000 000. To put this into perspective a top AD will work for R25 000 per week and five star accommodation can be booked for around R1500 per night) and setting up everything for principle photography in South Africa.
I have been in the industry since 1502.
