The movies I grew up with as a kid inspired me to get into this industry. I can’t wait to continue working alongside my team as a Junior Production Coordinator & Editor and see what we accomplish in the future. While in high school, our mantra was, “Turn Vision into Reality”. Thank you, Versatile Media, for turning my vision into a reality.”– Isabella Hallam, Production Coordinator, Editor.
She just completed our 6-month Apprenticeship Program and we asked her some questions on her experience with us.
What did you learn during your 6-month Apprenticeship?
Throughout these 6 months I have been exposed to multiple departments including marketing, motion capture equipment and procedural methods, production planning, client meetings, scheduling and more. I have been able to dance around in a MOCAP suit and be part of demonstrating our new gear. I was given the opportunity to edit some of the marketing reels for our social media platforms. This is the next generation of filmmaking, and I am honored to be a part of it, especially being alongside my mentors.
What are your long-term career goals and how do you think Virtual Production fits in to it?
My long-term career goals are building seniority and experience as a Production Coordinator over the next 5 years and moving up to Producing. I would like to possibly travel between Vancouver & LA for projects. Virtual Production was completely new to me when I was first introduced to Versatile Media. I knew about performance capture processes for movies such as Planet of the Apes & Lord of the Rings, although I was not aware of LED Stages which opened a new set of doors of opportunities for me. Being able to be a Production Coordinator for those LED stages would be amazing as my studies were in film production.
You could be next. Graduating from a gaming, VFX or film program soon?
