Annie East

Annie has transferred her valuable skills and experiences of working on large broadcast drama film sets to consulting with Eco Film Productions on sustainable film production. 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 EFP.

Annie’s professional interests and research interests have combined to draw on her specialism of sustainable production practices as well as film-set health and safety practice. As a part-time lecturer at Bournemouth University, Annie is one of the founding members leading the ‘Albert in Education’ group with BAFTA Albert which looks to embed sustainable film and TV industry practice into higher education nationally and internationally.

Like Rachel, Annie has also reached the Carbon Literacy Standard, through training received from the We Are Albert foundation – leading UK environmental sustainablity initiative for the visual arts supported and governed by the BAFTA Albert Consortium.
