Allison began her working life with the BBC’s London based Outside Broadcast Department in London focusing primarily on sports programmes, drama and light entertainment. Allison then moved on to the Samuelson Group at Pinewood Studios working with renowned film makers facilitating feature films and major TV productions. Relocating to Wales, Allison went on to establish Wales Screen the organisation responsible for promoting Wales as a location
for film & Television production and attracting inward investment that would have significant economic impact.
In February 2018, Allison was offered the opportunity of heading up Screen Alliance Wales (“SAW”) a stand-alone philanthropic company based in the renowned Wolf Studios Wales. SAW was created by Bad Wolf as the company’s founders recognised that Wales needed an organisation to educate, train and promote TV crew and infrastructure throughout Wales.
SAW is the gateway between the industry and its workforce. It grows and promotes the talent, crew and services of the TV and Film Industry in Wales. SAW is unique to Wales and is quickly becoming the industry standard in promoting the complete supply chain from one single place. SAW is not led by the public sector it is created by the industry for the industry and it will be a powerful advocate of the crews, facilities and the talent that it represents.
