In 2005, I gave up a career as a qualified accountant to start again as a trainee in Production Accounting. I have worked my way up to Financial Controller over that time working in most roles within the accounts department on my way. I have worked on projects of all sizes from micro-budgets to the studio blockbusters, experiencing all levels of rules and regulations.
