Camera Assistant/Focus Puller/Stedicam Operator
Jade has been working closely with Smooth Demon for just short of a year and has already made a huge impression on the sets of ‘Patient 52’ (2017) and ‘Ruthless (2018)’. With incredible attention to detail, backed with a BSc in Film Production Technology, Jade works tirelessly to provide the perfect shot, working closely with the DOP to understand the motivation and position of a shot, in order to convey the Directors vision. Jade is comfortable within any Camera Assistant position, be it clapper loading, focus pulling or the occasional operating. Professionally trained by Tiffen on the Steadicam system, as well as an owner/operator of a Steadicam Aero, Jade is able to offer simple solutions to complex shots involving camera systems such as Blackmagic Ursa Mini, Sony FS7 and Canon C300.
With a previous career as a Media Technical Demonstrator for a local college, involving camera and lighting workshops with students, loaning, setting up and repairing equipment, Jade’s transition into the TV and Film industry was backed with a plethora of technical knowledge and hands on experience. Starting as a Runner on films such as ‘Ready Player One’ and ‘The Kingsman’, Jade now works with more regional talent in hopes to expand representation and diversity within Film.
With a home in the Midlands, Jade is central to a variety of different locations with bases in Bristol, Cardiff and London to name a few. Jade is also willing to travel to accommodate shoots around the country and abroad.
