VFX Production and Office Coordinator
Lola Visual Effects
May 2014 - Oct 2016
My production duties included knowing how to operate a head and body scanner as well as a custom capture rig that allowed us to light the talent to match any environment and then capture it on multiple RED cameras which is beneficial to the scope of work being done. Along with the rig and scanners, I would also operate the Canon 5D camera and be able to set up any stage equipment such as lights, stands, monitors, etc. At the same time, I was also doing office coordinating which included answering phones, setting up calls, ordering office supplies and food, taking notes in reviews with clients and supervisors as well as knowing how to set up a new show and assign tasks in our internal system.
