The PGGB Spotlight on New Talent Award sponsored by MBS Equipment Co. - presented to Fay Mohamed for the tenacity and ability she has shown whilst stepping up from Production Co-ordinator to Production Manager.
After accumulating a number of successful Production Coordinator credits including Top Boy (Netflix), The Accident (Channel 4) and Ted Lasso (Apple TV+), Fay made the move to Junior Production Manager for one block of Britannia (Sky Atlantic/Amazon Studios), before stepping into a full Production Manager role in 2021 for Gangs of London, produced by Pulse Films for Sky Atlantic. Remaining poised in the face of huge challenges caused by filming during COVID-19, Fay built trust across all departments and remained enthusiastic for continued responsibility. Throughout her steady career trajectory, her natural and burgeoning talent for production has been recognised by those she has worked with, marking her out as ‘one to watch’.
Bianca Gavin (Head of Production, Pulse Films) says: “We commend Fay for making that big step from the confines of the production office to a more frontline role. Gangs of London is an ambitious series, yet Fay never once faltered. She put herself front and centre, managing crew and equipment shortages, on top of all the other anxieties that working through a pandemic brings. Stepping up to become a solution focused, friendly ear to cast and crew alike is highly commendable. Fay remained committed and reliable throughout the entire series. We applaud her courage in putting herself forward for that role.”
