Work history

Currently

Production Coordinator

MPC

May 2015
  • As part of the 3DDMP/Environments department, I coordinate Environment TDs and Digital Matte Painters in the Film division of MPC London. I recently coordinated my team to complete 2D and 3D work on several hundreds of shots on Disney’s reimagining of The Jungle Book (2016), directed by Jon Favreau. It is my responsibility to coordinate teams of up to thirty Artists of varying experience at any one time depending on workloads and deliveries. Currently, I am coordinating my team on the latest installment of Jack Sparrow’s adventures in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017), directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. My job involves liaising effectively with Show teams, departments, and Artists to provide and request information and solutions. I am able to manage expectations by scheduling work and balancing resources realistically to meet deliveries using bespoke in-house scheduling software.
