Francesca Mackenzie

I’m a 1st AD and producer with experience in commercials, docu-series and short films.

I love working with small to medium-sized crews and have gained most of my experience in the independent space. I’m used to dealing with tight budgets, so I’m comfortable working without additional ADs and assists.

Having worked as a director and producer, I understand the balance of creativity and productivity. I’ve run my own video production business for over six years, so I’m sympathetic to the challenges of demanding clients and shrinking budgets—we’ve all been there!

I aim to create a set where people feel safe and supported, no matter where they sit on the hierarchy.

I’m happy to work with first-time directors and enjoy being an attentive and calm voice on set.
