So I just wrapped up my first ULB show as the Line Producer. And I have to say it was most definitely a learning experience. The amount of fires I had to put out was ridiculous. But I am happy to have this experience under my belt and see that I really am capable of being a Line Producer. I do have some more learning to do, but I mean who doesn’t? I’m also happy to have been able to work with old friends and meet new ones. Hopefully the people I brought on to this show, also learned or got something out of this show too.
When I first went into this show, I couldn’t help but feel a bit intimidated just because I had never managed a show this big. But as the show went from prep to production and eventually into wrap, I couldn’t help feel that this was what I was meant to do in film. As most of you know, I weirdly love logistics. There’s just something so soothing and therapeutic (most times) when you look and organize everything.
Production will always be my home and honestly, I couldn’t have done it without the help of my mentors who have taught me everything I know when it comes to production.
I first started in entertainment four years ago as a PA and eventually produced my own stuff. And then I took some time off to really focus on finishing school. It wasn’t until last summer where I started taking on more work and juggling school in the process. Going into March I took on my first coordinating shoot on a PSA for the OCDA’s office. From there I went into becoming a department head for this shoot. It really does show you that if you really want something and will put the time and effort into getting it. You’ll eventually move up and get rewarded for your hustle.
Until the next show guys!
