AS A RUNNER/SELF-SHOOTER

I’m The Runner you can rely upon to arrive early and be the assisting hands of your production in whatever capacity you need.

When I was seven years old, I remember watching a behind-the-scenes of Blue Planet, a killer whale playfully bobbed up alongside the camera crew’s boat and nuzzled the camera. I sat wide eyed in front of the television and announced decisively “I want to do that!” – “that” being produce captivating, insightful documentaries that inform, challenge, question and educate. That same seven year old never dreamt she’d end up falling into the corporate world of Property Management until at 25 I took a tremendous leap of faith, leaving my secure 9 to 5 and deciding to return to education as a mature student. I’m now on a path that I hope will lead me towards creating the incredible factual content I’ve always loved watching; the Attenborough’s, the Gordan Buchanan’s, and of course the Louis Theroux’s.

My holdall contains everything nobody can ever find – spare pens, prit pads, minitools, plasters and batteries.

Initiative and resourcefulness are not in my holdall… I have bags of that instead!

Before joining this amazing industry my eight years experience in Property Sales, Marketing and Management informed my dogged work ethic; my ability to prioritise when times get hairy; my time-management skills; my resourcefulness. The long days teach you to keep smiling even when the roof is falling in (sometimes literally); to communicate effectively with diverse audiences and to meet and then exceed impossible deadlines to tight budgets.

I work hard. Very hard. Nothing is ever a chore and I take delight in jobs many consider mundane; setting up C-stands is a pleasure and sand bagging grip stands is never dull… And I make a fantastic cup of tea!

“I had the pleasure of Georgina joining my production team and I can not speak highly enough of her. For me hard work is a given from anyone that I’m working with, but beyond that a positive frame of mind is absolutely key and Georgina brought that in abundance. As we all know shoot days can be long and hard and the mood of the entire production can be lifted by the well organised and positive approach of the production department and Georgina was an integral part of that – I look forward to working with her again in the future.” Al Eales (Producer, Mindless Intelligence Productions)

I can’t wait to continue learning and developing my skills; clearing the paths for others to do great work, and being privileged enough to watch and learn from that.

Georgie can handle whatever you throw at her and has a commitment to getting her work done effectively with maximum efficiency.  She listens to instruction and acts upon it, communicating clearly and precisely.  We welcome Georgie to set knowing that she is reliable, trustworthy and fun member of our production.  Georgie will lift any and everything she can get her hands on and won’t complain about a thing.  She just get’s it done.Spencer McPherson (Chief Creative Officer, Still Moving Media)

Additionally, I have completed the Screenskills COVID-19 Certificate, have a full driving license with business insurance and am willing to travel anywhere permitted under current government guidelines. 

So, how can I help you?
