Johanna Tuominen

AD & Casting Assistant

Our newcomers of 2022 include Johanna Tuominen, Britain based Finnish film worker who’s just starting out her career behind the camera.

Johanna has studied acting in multiple countries and schools before ending up in London working in theatre management. Before joining our team she’d been working as a Duty Manager and Stage Manager in multiple British theatres and completing minor roles in film and TV productions. While filming she realised working as a 3rd AD would come rather naturally for her – and started looking for a chance to expand her knowledge further!

Johanna’s strengths include her talent in languages, understanding of actors work and international productions as well as her background in jobs including lots of organisational skills. During her training in BBG AD Bootcamp she got to demo AD’s work by creating a script breakdown, shooting schedule, extras breakdown and few call sheets of a large scale production. Right after finishing the program she also jumped on a short film production as the 2nd AD working a bit more with call sheets and shooting preparations. She was able to use her former experience from theatre and acting industry and evolve it into her duties as an AD. During this experience we got to see her great social skills and discretion in action.

Johanna is especially interested in casting and working with talents and extras on set. We see her nexts steps being assisting 3rd AD’s, Extras Coordinators or Casting Directors at their work to get a better understanding of their work and creating a routine of working behind the camera. She’d also be a fantastic candidate to jump on any shoot as a daily Floor PA, AD Assistant or Crowd PA.

Johanna is based in London however working internationally.
