Ronja Mankinen

AD & Production Assistant

Future filmmaker, up-and-coming Assistant Director Ronja is one of our newest members. We got to know each other during the 1st edition of BBG AD Bootcamp. After the program we asked Ronja to join our team as we saw her potential on becoming something special – her work within the program was highly motivated and she paid good attention to details (a fantastic quality for anyone working in film!)

Ronja is calm, quiet and focused worker. She feels she’s at her best in a hectic production environment when she can evolve her skills and challenge herself. In the last year she’s worked on few short films and completed an internship in a TV series production. Her duties have included helping on organising the logistics, assisting in daily production documents and office work as well as on basic PA duties on set. During her studies Ronja has also completed one short film as the 1st Assistant Director.

Ronja is in the beginning of her career and hasn’t yet got lots of experience. Above all else she’s interested in evolving her skills and open for all work possibilities in the industry. Her logical next steps are any assisting jobs in production, AD, casting and / or location departments. One day in the future Ronja hopes she’ll become a professional 2nd Assistant Director.
