This week a number of our Filmmaker members worked on Season 2 of Amazon Prime Video’s, Jack Ryan.

One of those was James Mount!

A word from James:

“I was a Location Marshall on Amazon Prime Video’s, Jack Ryan!  This entailed some elements of being a Runner as well as set dressing before and after shooting.

For the most part, we did Lock-Offs, cutting off and redirecting the public so that they aren’t on set or in the shot. It was hectic but it helped build camaraderie among all of the Marshals. We shot at the Steak and Co. on Irving St, just outside Leicester Square in Central London so as you can imagine, it was busy!”

James did the #SetReady course in August 2018 as part of the Crew in Group 12!

“I like how in touch the NYFA is with regular emails and job postings, I actually got the Location Marshal job through a listing  Jenna the Talent Manager, posted. I applied and she did the rest!”

“As for the future, I’ve applied to take part in the #Breakthrough course, I’m very excited to possibly get on that. As for future projects, I have something lined up for over the New Years with other NYFA Members.”
