    About me

    I am a hard-working film/tv production Runner. Recently i have worked as part of stage management on several theatre productions. From working within theatre i have gained skills that can be transferred to Film/tv.

    In addition i have also been a volunteer runner on student productions and on a low budget feature.

    The skills i have gained are as follows:

    . Own car with business insurance

    . Knowledge and experience of other departments including lighting, sound, wardrobe and props.

    . Able to work as an individual or as part of a team

    . used to long hours

    . knowledge of lorry packing

    . meeting the demands of cast, crew and the production


    Although I'm based in Tyne and Wear I'm happy to relocate, if this is necessary. I am also comfortable touring.

    Additional Information

    My credits include:

    The 60th anniversary tour of Agatha Christie the mousetrap as Tech Assistant stage manager

    Assistant stage manager on Snow White and the Severn dwarfs panto

    Stage manager and sound op on Rolling back the years

    On top of this i have also volunteered at Tyneside cinema pop up film school and the Edinburgh fringe festival. As well as completing the BFI film academy.

    In my spare time i create short films and foley sounds. I also volunteer at a number of heritage sites
