Sheena Patel 1st Assistant Director

During 2021 Sheena completed 5 blocks of Casualty as a 1st AD. The episodes were location heavy, including sizeable stunt scenes including two oncoming train crash and car crashes. Working across fire safety on burn stages, with snow and rain effects, and within children's hours. Also experienced within a studio environment, working with crews as small as 15 to over 100 on the bigger stunt days.
