CLAIRE GRITTEN

ART DIRECTOR

 

01 about

My journey over the past 13 years has been quite the rollercoaster with every high being a new skill learned, and every low a new problem solved.

 

I picked up skills (and tools) in each department that I worked in. I started in stills, painting sets and making coffee. Thereafter, I moved into production, where I honed my project management and organisational skills. I then really threw everyone for a loop when I studied patisserie and added food styling to the menu; somewhere along the line I did my time in wardrobe/costume, and to me, set design and construction was a natural next step and it’s where I’ve stayed as Art Director for the last 6 years. Simply put, I love what I do, whatever I’m doing.

 

I’ve worked on many different projects; features, series, reality TV, and music video or two, but most of my showreel consists of local and international commercials.

 

I am a multitool. I give my all to every job and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty.

03 teamwork

In my time being part of the art department, I quickly learned that you are only as good as your team. I can offer guidance, instructions, and leadership, but without a good support team, there is no way that the dream would become reality. No job for me is too big or too small, with my real strength lying in my ability to get the most out of any budget. I’d even go so far as to say that some of my best work came from the tightest budgets.
