Shéa Bradley

1st assistant director


I have almost 30 years industry experience, operating as a 1st Assistant Director for the past 20+ years.

Initially concentrating on commercials, music promos and short films I’ve also worked on feature films, tv drama and documentaries.

I have extensive experience of everything from tabletop studio shoots to elaborate stunts in hostile environments.
I have worked on shoots utilising an array of equipment including tracking vehicles, motion control, 240° large sensor rigs, ICVFX, VR, UAV, 3-D, cranes, helicopters, aircraft and boats.

For the last decade I’ve been lucky enough to work my way across the world, splitting my efforts between high-end factual entertainment and commercials in the most extraordinary locations with the best people possible.

I have worked with Darren Aronofsky, Spike Lee, Robert Richardson, Darius Khondji, Trey Edward Shults and Drew Daniels on projects featuring Will Smith, Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds, Rhianna, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber & Pharrell Williams.

I’ve shot in over 60 countries.
Highlights have included inside an active volcano in Vanuatu, abseiling into subterranean lakes in Namibia and witnessing rocket launches in Kazakhstan for Disney, Netflix, Amazon Prime, NBC, FX & Nat Geo.
