If you’re good with numbers and people then a career as a Production Accountant in TV and film could be waiting for you.

"Being involved at the very beginning of the production process, in development when the script and budget are still being worked on, crunching numbers and working with the producers regarding what is achievable within the budget, makes the role what it is. I really enjoy the level of involvement you get from the outset, working with pretty much the entire crew across different departments and grades." 

Dan Hillsdon, Financial Controller - Wonder Woman 2, Overlord, Ready Player One, The Danish Girl
