The Secret Life of Megan Hughes

Meg loves that no two days are the same working in television production management. As an undergraduate she worked as a Production Coordinator, with production company Blast! Films on Channel Four’s The Secret Life of the Zoo.

Following her initial placement and graduation, Meg was offered a permanent position on the show, moving into the role of Production Secretary.

She felt that her course prepared her well for all aspects of her placement and subsequent employment, such as being responsible for conducting production paperwork, risk assessments and filming unit schedules. However, knowing how to respond to calls about an escaped orangutan was something she had to learn on the job.

“Megan was a brilliant addition to the team, and worked extremely hard to assist with the demands of the production. A production of this size needed someone with a positive can-do attitude every day and Megan was keen to impress. We’ve recently invited Megan back to help on the new series.”
