Location Assistants and Production Secretaries

We have a select amount of experienced 3rd AD’s, 2nd AD’s, Location Assistants and Production Secretaries on our books should your production require it. Some are original members who have gained enough experienced to make the next step up, some are people we know through working in the industry, or who have been recommended to us by industry professionals we trust. Again, like the runners, they get paid directly via the production, no extra costs incurred by hiring through us. CV’s for the above levels will only be accepted with an accompanying reference from an industry professional.

"I would personally recommend to Production, AD’s and Locations these two wonderful, experienced people who love what they do"

Michael Stevenson - Legendary Assistant Director & BAFTA Award Winner.

Tickets on sale now!

We’re pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for our 3rd Annual Runners Training Day.  For more information on course details and how to buy tickets please  email: [email protected]

Over the last 2 years our Training course has been exclusively for our own members on our Trainee Runner Scheme. However, we thought we’d do things a little differently, as last year our Trainee course was such an overwhelming success and since then we have inundated with people asking:

‘How can I be a runner?’

‘How can I move into the Film and TV drama industry?’

‘What do we need to get regular work?’

‘How can I join CallTime’s Books?’ 

So we have opened our Training Course to all, on a first come first served basis.

  • LOCATION: Central London location (It will be at an easy to get to via Train, Tube & Bus) – Venue details to be sent out nearer the day.
  • DATE: Sunday the 12th July 2015
  • TIME: 0900-1800
  • COST: £95 to include all the course paperwork, words of wisdom from our Professional Speakers plus lunch and refreshments.

As well as CallTime Company we’ll have Key Speakers who are at the top of their game in the industry.

As a runner, trying to break into the industry, whether it’s into the Production office, AD’s or Locations teams, our speakers always give an amazing insight into what they’re looking for from you, their Runners. On top of that they let you know how they did it and how they have managed their successful careers in a very tough and competitive industry.

If, after a day of listening to the harsh reality of what being a runner involves, and we haven’t scared you off, we’ll be accepting application to join our 6 month Trainee Runner Scheme. This involves a formal application and interview process, not all applicants will be successful.

Our Trainee Scheme is a way we try and break the whole vicious circle of becoming a runner, ‘How do I  gain experience when I need experience to get the job in the first place?’.  This is where we can help. We get asked for a variety of roles and some of these roles don’t require as much experience as others, lock off pa, stand-in runner, rushes runner etc. The trainees on our scheme are offered work which will build up their levels of experience without dropping them in the deep end. Eventually getting you in the film and tv drama industry in the position you want, whether this is production runner, key floor runner or location assistant.

Over the past two years we’ve placed our previous Trainee Runners onto productions such as:

Guardians of the Galaxy

Downton Abbey


Kingsman: Secret Service

Avengers: Age of Ultron and many more.

Look forward to seeing you on the 12th!

We’re celebrating our FIRST birthday today! Can’t believe we’ve only been going a year. Just want to thank all our lovely and very hardworking Calltime Members. We’re not the ones doing the 4am starts, busy days, long drives and tough conditions…you all are. The fact that you do all this, and we still get fantastic feedback about you all, makes us very proud! Also wanted to mention a big thank you to all the productions who’ve used us in the past year, our company CV reflects what a great first year we’ve had. We still have lots of productions we can’t add as they’re still shooting so watch this space!

We had a fantastic turnout at our second Runners Training Day last weekend, which was held at Kings College, Somerset House, London. The calibre of the speakers was second to none and the talks were amazing.

After the event we held a drinks reception so we, and our speakers, could get to know our new recruits a bit better.

Since then we’ve been inundated with messages from our runners telling us how informative, useful and inspirational the day had been. Check out just a few of the messages on our Facebook page.

And finally, to all our runners who attended the event, we also enjoyed the day and look forward to doing it all again next year!”

Dear Tam and Vicki – Wishing you and the Calltime Company the best of luck with your launch. What a great idea – to have an agency for runners and trainee’s – helpful for the supply of runners for run of show – but also all the additional dailies you may need for large crowd scenes or major location lock offs.

To know that these people have been trained and vetted by such high ranking industry professionals makes it even more reassuring – and the people behind the company have a clear understanding of production needs – which as we know have to be flexible. What I also really like is the fact that this provides an entry level for people who are keen to get into the industry, but don’t have the necessary contacts sometimes to fulfill those ambitions. I have little doubt that Calltime will become a major resource for the film and television industry. Congratulations – inspired idea. Best Callum.
