Working as a Personal Assistant/Production Assistant to the founder and Company Director, award winning film director Bader Ben Hirsi. Functioning as the mechanics behind the production company’s activities I was responsible for arranging meetings and interviews, organising schedules, travel arrangements and visas, along with liaising with major partnerships and international companies. This allowed for extensive travelling to L.A, the Berlin Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival along with the opportunity of spending three months working on the pre-production of a feature length film in Morocco. As a Production Assistant I was able to exercise my creative flair by collaborating with the production team in the initial development process of forthcoming projects, which lead to me to write, co-produce and shoot my own short film earlier this year.
