Danton Appleton Smith

Junior Production assistant | runner


I am a dedicated, self motivated, organised and methodical individual. I have good interpersonal skills alongside being keen and very willing to learn and develop new skills making me efficient at project based jobs. I have an active and dynamic approach to work and getting things done being early in the morning to the depth of the night. I am determined and decisive and love to see a project through.

Growing up with a background in the Film and commercial world, I was always nudged towards it however I did plan to explore other options, I studied and then worked for an investment bank named Mizuho. After some time I did come to the conclusion that it wasn’t what I wanted nor intended to do for the rest of my life, something I may explore later however not for the time being.

I am a very outgoing enthusiastic person who loves project based work within teams, and companies concluding to a goal and final production.

My key skills:

Studying Finance and then working in finance and investing management has allowed me to develop my analytical skills and work under immense pressure.

Proficient use of Microsoft Office – Word, Excel, Powerpoint

Producing and completing all PPM documents

An understanding of building up a client friendship with all crew and agency

Full clean UK licence with a car
