LESLIE GODFREY 310.962.9902 mobile leoles@me.com COMMERCIAL/BIDDER RESUME PRODUCER/PRODUCTION MANAGER LINE PRODUCER/BIDDING PRODUCER Throughout the years I have built a successful career in the commercial & film industry as a producer and production manager. I have worked with numerous high-end companies, directors, talent, crew and advertising agencies. I have also worked with lower profile companies with smaller budget projects. My experience includes a wide range of projects. Table top food to multi-country, roadshow car campaigns. Within the past few years I also began working as a bidding producer. Bidding allows me to utilize the knowledge I have gained as a producer and production manager in the field. I have found, as well, that bidding makes me a better, more well rounded producer. As a bidder I am constantly honing my skills as a producer. I am allowed a birds eye view of the workings of a production company and their interactions with advertising agencies and cost consultants. The research aspect of bidding is fantastic because I am constantly learning. I am great with a budget and creative financial artistry. My expertise lies in problem solving, troubleshooting and complicated logistics. I have the ability to gracefully excel in a fast-paced work environment with crucial deadlines. My success lies in my understanding of the importance of constant communication, with necessary parties. Diplomacy is key.
