What are the most and least enjoyable aspects of your job?
The most enjoyable parts are the projects themselves and seeing them through from start to finish. Least enjoyable is some of the paperwork that goes with production.
What has been the most exciting project of the last twelve months?
Each project has its own element of excitement. Sometimes it’s about the people you work with, sometimes it’s about a particular aspect. This could be nailing an especially tricky post-production process, or just that something great happened during a project. Choosing one is very difficult!
What skills are essential to your job?
Attention to detail, understanding what different people do, and how to get the best out of them. Being able to think ahead and foresee problems before they happen is useful too.
Do you run any side projects alongside your job?
Yes, I think it’s important to do side projects alongside your work, as long as they don’t interfere with your job. In my case, I do a bit of writing.
What tools do you use most for your work?
Standard office package, SAP (it’s the finance software we use here) and Keynote. But truth be told, I love my old-fashioned note pad the most.
