Simon Oxley, Executive Producer at Greatcoat Films
“We have had the pleasure of working with Lina on numerous productions over the past year and she has now become one of our key go-to 1st ADs. We have worked on productions varying from low budget music promos to high-end commercial work. All of which she has approached with excellent preparation, planning and consideration for logistics with the kind of positive people skills that make the set a lovely place to work, while still retaining the authority to get things done and deal with tight schedules when required. I would thoroughly recommend Lina as a top 1st AD” –
Simon Ross, Director
I have worked with Lina on both commercial and drama projects for a number of years, and am always pleased to have her as my first AD. Her ability to be really nice to everyone on set, whilst at the same time keeping them on their toes is really quite refreshing and unique amongst her peers! Lina always ensures a really positive and focused atmosphere on set, and is serene and resourceful in a (rare!) crisis. Her preparation is meticulous, and she very quickly understands what I'm trying to get. Crew like working under her, as she is clear and direct - the kind of person people want to perform well for. I'm sure anyone would want her on their team - she makes it all a little easier!
Ben Schneider, Executive Producer at Radical Media
“Having Lina as our 1st AD showed me that she is an effective communicator and is able to think on the spot. Her ability to collaborate whilst guiding a difficult project made the filming experience very enjoyable and even fun. I found Lina always available and flexible when it came to helping with tasks required to make pre-production/principle photography efficient. It was a pleasure to witness relaxed and well -planned production led by enthusiastic Assistant Director” –
