Alison Louise Passey

About me: I worked at the BBC for 25 years, rising from a Personnel Officer’s Secretary to a production manager in the Comedy department. In between, I experienced productions in Drama, Documentaries, Music Entertainment and Comedy Entertainment.

I have scheduled, budgeted, contracted and helped deliver many hours of television shot on various formats (tapeless, HD, digibeta, dvcam). I have worked on archive, location, OB, studio, chat shows, compilation shows, music documentaries, music events, foreign filming, live, animation, magazine, radio and online. I can complete post production paperwork in the absence of a post production supervisor including Radio Times billings, Programme As Completed forms, TX forms and Compliance Forms. I am a team player and am happy to ensure the efficient running of a production by servicing the needs of the show, including on low budget programming by ordering bikes, booking hirecars, arranging flights and hotels to contracting and negotiating rates for the crew and ancillary staff of up to 60 people. I can clear music, stills and archive. I can contract artists, musicians, supporting artists and contributors. I have excellent relationships and contacts with and amongst agents, artists, crew and suppliers.

21 years experience.

Genre: Animation, Childrens, Comedy, Factual Entertainment, Magazine Programmes, Multi camera Studio

Additional skills: Archive, CGI Video FX

Other skills: My years as a Production Accountant have meant that I can create a cost manager that is understandable for any level. I also have a useful gift for empathy from my years as an RAF brat. I like nothing better to be an efficient second-in-command.
