So, here we are; the end of another busy day at PP HQ and the end of my time as Assistant Producer at Paines Plough. 6 months have whizzed by and boy have Paines Plough been busy: 7 shows, 3 open auditions, 13 come to where i’m froms, 1 TMA award and a zillion company meetings later, it is time to bid the team farewell.
I’ve had the most amazing 6 months at Paines Plough. Having started back in late May as Trainee Producer (through a secondment with Birkbeck University), I am now leaving with assistant producer and producer credits under my belt, and am launching myself out into the world of freelance producing (firstname.lastname@example.org). Although I’m looking forward to an array of challenging and exciting projects in 2011, I really will miss Paines Plough very much indeed. Many many thanks to all the writers, venues, directors, and actors I have met and worked with during my time at the company, and extra special thanks to everyone at PP HQ – George, James, Tara, Hanna, Jack, Anneliese, Jo, Nick, Claire, Fiona, Mimi, and Tasha – for all the opportunities and fun times.
I’m certainly going to stay in touch with the company and suggest everyone else does too – there is so much exciting stuff happening next year, I can’t wait to see how the company gets on.
ps. this isn’t properly goodbye, as Jack Lowe (Trainee Director) and I are off to India later this week with an exciting programme of Paines Plough work. Keep an eye on the blog for updates. Adieu. x
