Melissa Eaton

Production manager

My fascination with TV production began at an early age but was firmly cemented as my career choice when I was given the opportunity to be an extra in a kid’s TV series and music video whilst at school. This gave me the insight I needed to be totally hooked – but also proved I should never get in front of a camera again!

I started out in-house as Office Manager before plunging into the freelance world. With no practical experience on set but a lot of enthusiasm, I began as a Production Assistant before moving up to Production Manager. Now a Production Manager with over 15 years experience in the business, I’ve built and will continue to build my knowledge and contacts list. I’m grateful to have worked with some very talented people and I love that my work still challenges me daily. More recently I’ve been adding to my experience by producing online content.
