Melody Ruiz

Assistant Producer


About me

I am an accomplished Assistant Producer within the television industry looking to make the transition into film. As an AP/DV Director in television, I self-shoot, produce and direct. I also cast contributors and set up shoots, both in the UK and abroad. I tend to work on productions and developments that require some degree of sensitivity, often obtaining and/or maintaining delicate access and producing challenging contributors. I possess good editorial judgement and the ability to sense and produce a great story. Although the scripted film industry is in some ways vastly different to documentary-making for television, I feel that the skills and attributes I possess are transferrable and equip me well for the demanding world of film producing. I already identify great story material on a daily basis and I believe I have the tenacity and organisational skills to obtain funding, coordinate and ensure smooth running of any project.
