Head of the MFJF Academy | Assistant Director
New York | IMDB
The two main parts of my job as the Head of the My First Job In Film Academy involves liaising with productions to find out what staff they need, roles such as PAs and Trainees, and put forward MFJF Members for these positions. Secondly, organize and run workshops and networking events for MFJF Members.
Please get in touch with me if you are looking for a career in production or have questions about our workshops and events. I am always available for conversations via our Facebook Group:
"This is a people's industry - you can't make a film on your own and reputations matter more than resumes. So always be polite, a positive attitude and strong work ethic will take you far in this business."
