Short Ends was set up in 2018 and born out of my own challenges as a working parent in the industry.
Having worked in Production for the better part of 21 years and having had to take time off to raise my family, I would have loved to have been given the opportunity to work from home doing elements of a job I love.
Now that I am back full time as a Production Manager for HETV, I believe we can outsource elements of the production process to those experienced & skilled Production staff for one reason or another can't commit to the long shoot hours.
The industry is busier than ever now, and we have a whole workforce of experienced crew who are not being used effectively.
Short Ends was created to ring fence these skilled workers making it easier for Productions to find them.
In addition to this, we also look after the most experienced full time freelancers from Production Supervisors to P.A's, so If you are a production looking to recruit or a freelancer looking to be registered, please get in touch today
We do not charge the crew member, but rather charge the Production a minimal finders fee for each placement we make, which is only payable should the candidate be selected.
Please see Price list for further details.

Some comments from industry professionals
‘I have to say - I'm so excited by your business idea. I've been wishing for there to be an easier way to find work from home and you may have the answer. Exciting times - thank you for involving me’
'So many productions these days struggle to keep up with all the paperwork (especially as what’s needed keeps growing!) so great idea to start this up'
‘Sounds like a really progressive and innovative idea that the industry needs.’
'This is a wonderful idea and something the industry is sorely in need of.'
‘I think your idea sounds fantastic! I've often wondered if there was a way to make a business out of some of the aspects of production…. I'd definitely like to do more flexible bits and pieces if possible! It’s just a matter of finding the work!'
