ABOUT Sian Gwilliam

I have worked on a variety of broadcast programmes and consultancy projects. These range from long running Primetime Unscripted Studio, Features, Physical & Adventure Game shows, Fact Entertainment, Comedy Panel shows, Quiz Shows, Documentary, Sport OB, Live Music, Live Events, Fixed Rig and Reality shows.

I’ve worked with teams and budgets of all sizes. Working in Sport and Unscripted I have set up and consulted on projects internationally.

I have launched, delivered and managed the International roll out of NBC hit format Game of Games, and Fox hit format Mental Samurai.

International Producers I worked with on the development and production of Game of Games;

Germany | Spain | Portugal | Australia | Thailand | Finland | Sweden |UK | Dubai / Lebanon | Greece | Italy | Belgium | France | China | Canada | Hungary | Latin America | Phillipines | Tunisia

I have spent time consulting on the set up of international hubs in Europe for Producers and 3rd parties.

I’m confident in launching, consulting and running the most difficult of productions both in the UK and internationally.

I have extensive experience in budgeting, scheduling, recruiting and managing teams, overseas filming, multi-cam, live OBs, PSC, OB, UHD, archive, compliance, insurance, H&S, and working with high profile talent and contributors.

I pride myself on my team management skills and always work in a calm and pragmatic manner. I am not daunted by any situation and I possess a friendly manner, which is always key in keeping a handle on all situations. I thrive on the challenge of creating and launching new projects.

I have held senior management roles;

International Consultant (Warner Bros International), Production Consultant (Syco & Shed), Head of Production (Outline Productions), Deputy Head of Production (Shine), Production Executive (Magnum, Olga, Alaska, STV, Studio Ramsey, Second Star, Electric Ray, Aphetor), Production Executive (Endemol), Unit Manager (Initial).

I am dedicated to managing teams to work to tight budgets and creative schedules, maintaining communication between all departments, developing project branding, working with cross-platform departments, and delivering consistent style, design and editorial themes.

Having worked as part of the  the Executive team on Big Brother and together with the formidable team, ran a ground breaking digital multi-platform event. This series was run by a 24/7 production crew, so I understand the importance of communication skills across all team and broadcaster departments.

I have dealt with my fair share of compliance issues and am constantly looking for new ideas and quality in my work and enjoys using my creative skills to ensure that each programme is on budget, gets recommissioned and thrives on teamwork.

I have also worked closely on project managing and consultation appraisals for companies, so can locate where potential problem areas for productions (hopefully). Having started in low Budget television I am confident I can manage any programme despite budgetary or schedule restrictions.

I’ve been key to the teams on these primetime shows (and worked on many pilots and the development of many large scale entertainment projects);

Game of Games (International), Masterchef (BBC2), Big Brother (C4), Celebrity Big Brother (C4), The Bafta Film Awards (ITV/BBC), Fame Academy (BBC), The Paralympics (BBC), The Commonwealth Games (BBC), Bring The Noise (SKY1), House of Tiny Tearaways (BBC3), The Priory (C4), The Simpsons Quiz Show (C4), The Lottery Show (BBC1).
