Penny Cobham is one of our star producers. We can’t quite believe it but she’s been here for a year already. Time flies when you’re having fun. Anyway, we asked her to sum up her thoughts of her first 365 days at Heehaw:
It has been a whole year since I officially started working at Heehaw – and what an amazing year it has been! Since last September I have been promoted to Producer, been out to Switzerland twice and worked on so many incredible projects. My time at Heehaw so far has been invaluable and I have learnt so much about the industry, film production and general life skills along the way.
I joined Heehaw last year, straight from studying Film Production at The Arts University Bournemouth and looking for my first proper job in the industry. As everyone does when they leave film school, I was ready to become a runner, with little or no wage and pay my dues. I never thought I would walk into a full-time job straight away. I was so lucky to be given a chance by the team at Heehaw – everyone was incredibly supportive and welcoming from the start and I absolutely love coming into work everyday.
A personal highlight of working here has definitely been travelling to Switzerland. Over the past few years, Heehaw have built up somewhat of a client base over there and I was lucky enough to be asked to go out with the team for filming not once, but twice. Switzerland is probably the most beautiful place I have ever seen and I would recommend it to anyone – and not just for the chocolate!
A lot has changed at Heehaw since last September; we have many new additions to the team and a lot of new and exciting clients. The end of the year rush is fast approaching and I can’t wait to see what 2017 will bring for Heehaw!
