EXPERIENCE

"I really enjoyed working with you and you demonstrated intelligence, communication, the ability to listen properly and act on instruction as well as being a reliable part of the team on the floor, all of which are qualities I value in an AD"


Tom White 1st AD

"A natural AD - bit older with worldly experience. I'd take her on to any production I worked on. Keen, intelligent and has those two qualities that all AD's need; common sense and intuition"



Toni Staples 1ST AD

"Stephanie is one who rarely needs to be asked to do anything. She has, more often than not, already done it of her own accord. Attentive, watchful, helpful and wanting to learn. A great addition to your crew. I look forward to having her on my next shoot”


Patrick Cadell 1ST AD

AD PORTFOLIO


I changed career having worked in F1 for over 10 years. Previously being a Race Team Infrastructure Engineer travelling to each race and solely managing the IT Infrastructure and then a Technical Project Manager. My past experience has given me many transferable skills such as: leading small to large projects and teams, managing budgets over £1m and extensive organisational, time keeping and communication skills. As well as the ability to multitask under extreme pressure and think ahead. My work ethic is to be pro-active, always thinking ahead, having good communication and remaining calm to create a fun and friendly but efficient working environment. My experience supports my ambition to become a successful Assistant Director in Films, Drama and Television.


I have recently been working as a 1st AD in Commercials/Music Videos/Shorts as well as continuing to work contracts in high end drama.
