    About me

    I have been working as a Production Assistant for a small independent producers for over a year building an exciting slate for 2021 across HETV, feature, shorts and animation. This has included script review and writing, as well as helping with day-to-day admin and management. Previously I worked in creative offices and studios as project manager in charge of key client relationships. This was across film and digital, print and social media. I pride myself on my approachable communication style be it in person, via email or over the phone. I am used to handling and prioritising across multiple projects to tight deadlines as well as taking on financial responsibilities for budgets and billing. I have undertaken PA and receptionist roles that have included booking freelancers, equipment hire and making travel arrangements. I love being a part of the entertainment industry and think that the best part is being able to work collaboratively to tell stories with like-minded people.

    Additional Information

    I have professional film experience assisting on filming and photography shoots for marketing and social media films including b-roll. This has also entailed extensive research and sourcing from library footage and liaising between clients and creative editing teams. Prior to this I worked on costume for a final year film as well as taking a lead in costume creation for the UH Drama Society Peter Pan Pantomime and on the pre-production for the short film Selkie, which won the Elstree award in 2014.

    I have a degree in Fashion and would like to apply this thinking across art departments to create character.

    Referees

    Charlotte Atkinson/ Our Daughter Productions:

    Kathryn is a highly valued and essential part of our team. She is always organised, efficient and professional, and combines these skills with an exceptional creative eye for visuals and details. She has been responsible for liaising with charities on behalf of one of our films, establishing a strong partnership which benefits our project enormously. She also manages a team of interns with ease, care and attention to detail. In addition to these tasks, she also co-develops stories, characters and plots, providing in-depth feedback on scripts, pitches and ideas. Her combination of admin, management and creative skills is a huge asset to our team.
