Maxine Walters

Class some weeks ago was very interesting we had Maxine Walters in our presence. Initially I did not know who she was but as the class progress I found out that she was a veteran in film show production. After class I went and did some research of my own and found that she has worked with many internationally movie stars including Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington and Whoopi Goldberg just to name a few. She is also the person behind the PUMA ads film in Jamaica featuring Usain Bolt. Ms. Walters is the owner of Maxine Walters Filmshow Production.

'Maxine Walters began working in the film industry in 1988. She has worked in production for Warner Bros., Walt Disney Studios, Fox 20th Century Studios, and as a voice coach for Denzel Washington in The Mighty Quinn. Additionally, Walters has worked with fashion photographers and on television specials with production powerhouses out of Europe and North America' (http://www.realartways.org/press/releases/2009/20091123-maxine-dancehall-epr.html).

Ms. Walters presentation has definitely sparked my interest in the film industry particularly production assistant. The PA is involved in all aspects of the film from start to finish the work includes assisting actors and the crew, issuing scripts, dealing with travel and accommodation bookings and sorting out enquiries and other paperwork.
