After more than a decade managing production companies, I have handled and/or overseen pretty much every element of the production process. I enjoy being any part of achieving a positive outcome - whether it’s taking care of the details during pre-production, making sure everything runs smoothly on set, keeping post production on schedule, or reconciling the budget to wrap the job. Although I primarily work as a producer or production manager, I don’t always need to run the show. I understand that sometimes you just need some extra help in one area of a project, and I’m happy to take as much (or as little) as you want off your plate! So whether you need someone you trust to take charge, or just need a little support, I’d love to be part of your next creative project!

Contact me here if you’re ready to get going, or if you have any questions. I look forward to working together!

 

Producing/Production Management

There are a lot of moving pieces to any production, and I am here to make sure they are all working together. I handle the details throughout the process - creating and managing schedules and budgets; hiring crew & talent; renting equipment; coordinating travel; securing locations, permits, and insurance; and everything in between. My role is also about anticipating potential issues, adapting quickly when needed (which is often in the production world), and keeping everyone involved happy and successful.

Post Supervision

Having spent so many years managing editors, animators, and audio engineers, I have a thorough understanding of the post production process. I facilitate communication between the client and creative staff, organize assets, maintain schedules, secure talent and music licenses, and make sure all reviews and final files are delivered before deadlines.

Casting On-Camera & Voice Over Talent

Through my relationships with talent agencies and voice actors across the country, I can help find and secure the right talent for your project and budget.

Support Services

I work with production companies in various capacities such as bookkeeping, scheduling, and project management. A lot of people need some support, but not enough to hire a full-time employee. Because I work remotely, I am able to jump in as needed so you get the help you want without the commitments you don’t!

 

Budgeting/Accounting/Wrap

I am a self-proclaimed “number nerd” with a love for spreadsheets. I know, it’s not a “cool” thing to admit, but since most creatives hate this part, it leads to perfect symmetry. I work with a lot of production and live event companies in this department, and have managed budgets ranging from $5,000 - $8,000,000. I make sure all the paperwork is in order (W-9s, COIs, POs, invoices, etc.), track all of the expenses, and keep an eye out for any discrepancies throughout the project. I organize everything in a way that allows you to view the extensive details, or a simple summary, at any time so you know where your money is going and where adjustments need to be made. For me, there is something truly rewarding about closing out a job and seeing the results of all the hard work.

Associate Producing/Production Coordinating

Sometimes you want to manage your own project, but you need someone you can rely on to support you and make sure nothing slips through the cracks. Because I do it myself, I understand how overwhelming it can be at times. I am here to help you succeed!

Permitting & Paperwork

Production can involve a lot of paperwork that distracts you from your primary focus. I am happy to take that off of your hands. I can help you arrange travel, permit your locations, create and distribute deal memos and call sheets, collect vendor invoices and W9s, review contracts, etc.

Consulting

As a consultant, I can help streamline your internal processes and organization as well. Unlike traditional consultants, however, I approach it from more of a teaching perspective. I offer guidance to find what works best for you and your specific needs, in a way that allows you (and/or your staff) to maintain it on your own when we’re done. My biggest goal in business is to help. My experience in business management and production makes me uniquely situated to share what works (and what doesn’t) in an industry that is constantly changing.
