First, thank you so much for your time and consideration. My name is Allen Wier and I’d love to be able to take this time and introduce myself. I’m currently looking forward to the next phase in my career and believe this might be a perfect fit for my unique skill set. While working as a paralegal at a large Atlanta law firm, I was scouted and pivoted into film where I have been working as a Producer, Editor and Assistant Director for the last 5 years. I’ve been working both freelance and through the commercial production house Lamp-Lit, specializing in commercial advertisement in digital media and broadcast. Experience from this includes producing and editing a series of ads following sports traditions on college campuses across the nation for Nissan as well as coordinating, animating, and editing a series of broadcast instructional videos for the children’s PBS television show Nature Cat. Within the scope of this position, I’ve organized commercial productions for a large number of international brands overseeing all logistical aspects and execution including budgeting, scheduling, location, travel and transportation. You can see some samples of my work at www.lamp-lit.com or at my personal site www.allenwier.com, which has examples of my work as a producer as well as a video editor.
Thank you again for your time, please let me know if you have any questions at all. I’d love to further discuss my experience and potential future with your company.
Lamp-Lit is a small production group where I've been taking care of several roles, the principal of which has been Producer and Production Coordinator. For Lamp-lit, I've interfaced directly with clients and crew through every stage of production. I've taken a leadership role in casting, transportation, location, and budget all while managing the production calendar. On set I've also taken on the role of Assistant Director breaking down scripts and setting a filming schedule with the director. In post production I have also had a role in editing, coloring, and VFX for several of our videos.
As senior paralegal to a successful worker's compensation attorney, I have managed a very busy desk with about 150 open cases at any one time. This requires managing and proactively obtaining status updates as a constant task. In addition, I managed my attorney's legal calendar which included setting dates with Court, clients, and mediators in addition to drafting and filing legal documents as needed.
