The following blogpost was written by Heather, the PA who worked on our ChicPeek production with Jade Seah.
My stint at Luff Media was an exciting and eye opening one. Before this, I had no experience or any inclination of how this whole production went about or what was expected. I was roped in to be the production assistant for a fashion related production starring Jade Seah. As filming began, I started learning the ropes of the whole set- the sound, lighting, cameras, wardrobe and even the script. I had always thought that filming was a piece of cake. All I needed was a script and a good video camera. After this fabulous opportunity of working as a part of Luff Media, I have learnt that it is not as easy as it seems. Scouting locations, ensuring that the lights are in the right places, and working with the occasional surrounding noises are just a few lessons I learnt throughout the whole process of shooting the series.
I was very blessed to work with a crew that was professional and yet humble. Despite my occasional slip-ups, they were very patient in teaching me and they even took the time to explain why certain things had to be done in certain ways. It was like working with a group of friends and hence, I looked forward to going to work every day.
It was good that we finished filming in line with the time schedule that was drawn out. However, that also meant that my job was done. It was a bittersweet farewell as I said goodbye to Jade, the crew and even to the set. I had thoroughly enjoyed myself and perhaps, might consider venturing into this industry in the near future.
Subsequently, Heather loved the experience so much that she appeared in another one of our videos. She is now pursuing a higher education down under, in Australia. We wish her lotsa sunshine and kangaroos!
