Hi Chloe,

It’s fantastic you’re already working in various roles. I would suggest these are key areas to focus on:

• Understanding the communication chain on a production between the Prod Manager -Producer- Director- FM – Cam Super – Sound Super – Presenter.
• Understanding the order of a schedule and how an FM is key to keeping it moving by thinking ahead.
– Observe how the productions that you’re working on pass down information from production to presenter. The FM is there to make that as a smooth a passage as possible.
• Above everything it’s a “people” job! Meaning you have to be approachable, clear in your communication, able to listen.

Hope this is of some help.
