About George

Experience/Objective: I\'m an independent film-maker looking to secure a role / get on a ladder at a top, corporate, (preferably commercial-based) film production company, working in office as a runner, PA, producers assistant, assistant coordinator or creative assistant. I have one months experience working at production houses in London and I interned at \'Cineworks Independent Filmmakers\' in Vancouver for 3 months as an Operations & Productions assistant - during this time I also networked, completed some freelance editing and gained 3 weeks professional production assistant experience, (including an episode of 'The Flash'). I have experience directing, producing and editing shorts; to add I currently have my own mockumentary-based web series on the go, so my creative nous is currently fresh. Comedy-based content is my passion as I find you will have the most fun creating comical content; I believe I have a good sense of humour and can make this apparent whilst working and most importantly, in my work - Corporate Directing is the long term goal. (Please check out my website/portfolio which you can find on my resume). Me Personally: I am a humble and open-minded individual simply just looking for my lucky break in the industry. I like to travel/culture myself and have a variety of hobbies including sports/fitness, music festivals, videos games and DJing. As a person I am friendly, kind, easy-going and like to smile and make people laugh. My background has taught me to avoid negativity and I can easily stay motivated and pro-active when life throws knock backs my way. Any company willing to give me a chance at the job I have been striving for, I will give it my all to show why I was the correct decision.

Producer, Spectrecom Films

Dear Sir / Madam, George Leonard took part in a 2 week’s work experience placement with us in August 2018 expressing a great enthusiasm towards film production. George showed an interest in filmmaking and being on set, fitting in well within the team and helping out mainly within the production department here at Spectrecom. He was very prompt, polite and thorough in his work. He was helpful throughout his time with us, and able to work independently when required. Arriving early, and staying late (without request) he was a valuable asset to the team from the outset. George spent time working on location around London and Essex and assisting the production team in the office with shoot planning, prop sourcing and general running. He also took part in some edit shadowing. He was trustworthy and enthusiastic as well as having a helpful attitude towards staff and clients. I would recommend George in any other similar role, especially on set. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me. Yours sincerely, Jamie-Lee Carr Producer / Work Experience Co-ordinator @: jamie-lee.carr@spectrecom.co.uk T: 020 3405 2260

Production Runner, Smuggler

Dear whomever this may concern, I am writing with confidence to refer George Leonard as a hard-working, diligent and attentive production intern and running assistant. During George’s time at SMUGGLER, he was responsible for shadowing, and accompanying the in-house production runner on a multitude of tasks and in various capacities. George worked relentlessly, with a keen and open mind, allowing him to become extremely useful with the everyday office management responsibilities, as well as assisting in production tasks. Within the tasks set for George, there was visible eagerness and skill when it came to video editing and visual treatment creation - resulting in George producing a clean and professional treatment, as well as a very creative and unique showreel. George’s attitude was one of his main strengths, he was continually up-for-anything, and no task was beneath his abilities in his mind - which was an enormous positive for him in our eyes, especially when getting involved in a production office. Lastly, George was friendly, polite and approachable, and he was liked by everyone in the office during his short time here. He would be a great addition to any production office, or any working environment at all for that matter. With many thanks, Luca Chapman, SMUGGLER.
