Calm and focused Sanni represents the new generation of filmmakers in Finland. She’s a reliable worker who’s already got quite a wide experience from different productions. Sanni mostly works as a 3rd AD or Production Assistant – but is flexible to jump in for other positions too.
Sanni’s specialty is her quiet presence in any situation yet effective, hands-on work on set. Due to her years in business already she’s got a routine, knows what to do and can handle even stressful or challenging situations. She especially enjoys working as a 3rd AD on set when being able to coordinate cast and extras. That’s also seen by her supervisors as many of them have thanked Sanni’s quick abilities on adapting any changing situations and always having a great attitude towards her colleagues.
Besides working with performers of many levels Sanni has helped in the office on preparing multiple script breakdowns, call sheets and other production documents. On some productions she’s also worked on casting the extras and informing them of the coming shoots.
Currently Sanni is getting even more knowledge of productional work as she’s joined a TV production as a Production Assistant until spring 2023. For the future she’s interested for open positions in both AD and production departments. As she’s got skills on multiple different duties she’s a great candidate for many positions – especially 3rd AD but even a 2nd AD on lighter productions. Future looks bright for her – and so it does to you in case you wish to hire her on your team!
Sanni has also attended many of BBG AD Bootcamp‘s lectures during summer 2022 and a 4-hour training of first aid in fall 2022.
