Production & AD Assistant
We’ve gotten to know Essi through our AD Bootcamp in the summer 2022 and asked her to join the Gang right after. The same summer Essi also completed her first internship in film and is soon looking for the next experiences in the industry.
Essi has a lot of potential to become a fantastic filmmaker – she’s extremely motivated, gets excited of the productions she’s in, has great social skills and is detailed in her work. Her experience covers helping out in office work – eg. prepping production documents and assisting Production Coordinator as well as covering basic PA duties on set. She’s especially interested in developing her skills in both assistant directing and production departments and hopes the coming years will open her positions in fiction productions – both film and TV. During her studies she’s completed short films as the 1st AD and Production Coordinator.
We’d love to see Essi joining a larger scale production as an AD Trainee or Assistant in eg. production department. Essi is confident on her skills and wants to show her abilities in action. Currently she’s dreaming of becoming a Production Coordinator once gaining more experience.
