        • Brisbane, Australia
        • Freelance
        • Since 2015 I have worked as a costume designer, set designer and art director on music videos and short films. This has truly taught me the value of open communication, creative problem solving and negotiation while working within tight budgets and time frames. When hired as a costume or production designer, I have often undertaken additional roles where needed such as location scouting, casting, unit, make up, runner, etc. If you would like to see examples of my costume and production design work, please head to www.joliechatfield.com

        Designer Cutter/Shoot Assistant

        Black Milk Clothing

        Sep 2018 - Nov 2019
        • Brisbane, Australia
        • Full Time
        • As a cutter at BlackMilk, I operated the Pathfinder cutting machine. This included creating CAD markers and setting them up in the Pathfinder program, communicating with the spreader, supervising the machine as it cuts and bundling the garment panels. This role required me to work with efficiency and care to minimise recuts and wastage. Where needed, I also completed quality control duties as well as assisting the spreader. As a photoshoot assistant I acted as a dresser, runner and set design assistant, while also ensuring the shoot runs smoothly and to schedule.
