Annie has transferred her valuable skills and experiences of working on large broadcast drama film sets to her work at Bournemouth University. With a career spanning 18 years she has worked from runner to location manager, from first assistant director to production manager. Annie has a deep knowledge of working across both contemporary drama and costume drama with credits such as ‘EastEnders’, ‘Holby City’ and’ Casualty’ on her CV as well as costume drama adaptation classics such as Nancy Mitford’s ‘Love in a Cold Climate’. As a result, Annie brings a wealth of production knowledge to the department.
Annie’s professional interests, teaching commitments and research interests have combined to draw on her specialism of film-set health and safety practice as well as sustainable production practices. Her doctoral research area is examining ways students relate to the risk assessment when working on their independent projects.
Annie is one of the founding members leading the ‘Albert in Education’ group with BAFTA which looks to embed sustainable film and TV industry practice into HE nationally and internationally... Annie’s achievements in this area of teaching, learning and leadership have had further recognition when she represented BU as finalist for the EAUC Green Gown awards and she has won two awards at BU for her work in Education for Sustainable Development.more
