First AD/Producer

 

I've had the opportunity to work on set with director John Poliquin as his first AD and producer of visual content for a fashion commercial shoot for Meher & Riddhima.

 

On this shoot I gave input on shots, set up and staged scenes. Because a lookbook and editorial were being shot congruently, I was also responsible for communicating to the other unit on timelines and any shot or location changes. 

 

In addition, I assisted with carrying equipment, running models, and communicating to wardrobe, hair, and makeup when touch-ups were needed in an effort to keep the shoot running on schedule. 

Assistant Director

 

I worked as the Assistant Director on a new webseries shot in New York called Errata. I worked alongside the director in pre-production duties including wardrobe selection, assembling the shooting schedule, creating and sending out the call sheets, running table reads, and additional production tasks such as craft services and cast communication. During shoot days, I helped to ensure the shoot day ran smoothly, stayed on schedule, while also managing the Production Assistants.

 

Because this was a prop and wardrobe heavy production, I also ensured continuity and organization of props.

Casting

 

I worked for many years contractually as a casting assistant in Vancouver, Canada. I assisted Suze Menary at Q Casting on various commercial castings for clients such as Pampers, Pop Tarts, Panasonic, Hersheys and more. 

 

I have worked two separate Fashion Week Seasons in New York City as a Casting Assistant with David Milo Casting. I have worked on shows and presentations alike, for designers such as Rhie, Pas de Calais, Deveaux, and Taoray Wang. I took part in the pre-selection process at open call, created selects lists, communicated with agencies regarding casting with designers, coordinated the castings with designers, optioned models, coordinated and attended fittings, and was present on show day to ensure the timely arrival of talent.

 

October and early November of 2015, I assisted with the castings and callbacks for an upcoming Comedic Short Film entitled Tinder is the Night by Misha Calvert.
