This week I embark on a new challenge in my career as I participate in JUMPCUT Summer Production Company, a training programme for emerging Scottish production talent. I am super excited to be based at Film City Glasgow for the next two months where we will be producing a low budget short film in conjunction with Sigma Films whilst learning from industry professionals and gaining invaluable professional experience.
Already I have been privileged to meet some highly esteemed professionals including director Zam Salim (Up There) and producer Paddy Higson (The Magdalene Sisters) who, amongst others will be mentoring us throughout the process and I especially look forward to working closely with Savalas in their post-production dubbing theatre.
The rest of the crew, who I have been getting to know for the past few days are a really talented and enthusiastic bunch and it’s great to be working with with people from a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets. We now have a fantastic script to work from and I can’t wait to start helping bring it to life.
