Janine Frank First Assistant Director


I am a 1st Assistant Director, based in London, working in Commercials, Branded Content and Drama.

I use my common sense and diplomacy skills in scheduling and executing the safest and most time efficient schedules without compromising the director's vision. I thoroughly enjoy my job which shows in my happy and positive nature when running sets. Originally from Germany I am bilingual with a strong sense of time keeping. 

I have over 15+ years experience as a 1st AD and am a member of the AD Guild and BECTU, with references available upon request. I hold an IOSH Health, Safety Passport and carry out safety briefings on every shoot. I enjoy working in short form as well as long form. My experience includes but is not limited to  stunts, working with children, period, visual effects, special effects, sports, mountains, boat to boat, cranes, motion control, filming overseas, A-listers, Celebrities and YouTubers.

My favourite part about my job is the people I get to meet and work with. I am always happy to have a chat about any upcoming projects so please feel free to get in touch.
