I currently freelance under my company Sharona Productions. Reality shows, sporting events, live or eng
shows. I handle multi million dollar budgets and large crews, with the occasional smaller shows and crews.
My philosophy is: choose your battles, don't over explain your'll
loose your audience, think before you speak, remember to laugh daily & let the little things remain little.
Fun fact: I always have a Lava lamp on my desk in the production office. Fact: I love music. It's good for your soul.
Expertise in: bids, budgets, staff &
crew scheduling, hire all freelance and equipment, client Liaison,
handle all location agreements and releases, daily
call sheets and shot sheet.
