REALTIMERS: Georgina Lowes, Production Manager

02 April 2024

Name & job title:  

Georgie, Production Manager. 

Where do you fit in?  

At REALTIME, in the Episodic team. You’ll usually find me buried in a spreadsheet or ShotGrid, overseeing the day-to-day of a project, or managing some internal Production bits and pieces.  

The rest of the time, you’ll find me at a bar sipping on a martini, or in bed watching Friends – there’s no in between.  

How did you get your start in the industry?  

Honestly, I sort of fell into the VFX world. I had applied for lots of Entry-Level Film & TV positions coming out of University until Jellyfish hired me as a Studio Runner/Production Assistant. I was there for a few months before DNEG took me on as a Production Runner – that was my first big career step I’d say.  

Your superpower?

I would say I’m a pretty good multitasker, which comes in handy when you work in Production.   

What inspires you on the day-to-day?  

Stating the obvious, but my many talented colleagues and friends in this crazy business. I tell myself every day about how lucky I am to have such close relationships with people I work with, both past and present. I don’t really feel you get that same familiarity in other industries. Some would call it trauma-bonding, I would say it’s because we all love a good drink… 

My desert island film / TV show / animation / game / artform / piece of artwork is 

Whenever I see this question, only one thing springs to mind and that’s the film Cast Away. So probably that for some tips and motivation at least… #JusticeForWilson.  

Your soundtrack whilst working:  

It depends on the day or my mood. Sometimes it’s whatever my sister’s Spotify has in store for me, sometimes it’s throwback hits. Other times it’s unashamedly Alex Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy” podcast because I am a basic female Millennial, ok?! 

If you could work with anyone who?  

I love to work with strong and talented women, and I’ve always been a big fan of Jodie Foster. Any brilliant female actors, directors, and producers who I’ve often looked up to would definitely be up there. If we ever met, I think Sandra Bullock and I would be best friends.  

If not this, then what?  

I’ve always liked the idea of teaching someday.
I also love interior design, but I probably wouldn’t make a career out of it. I’m currently in the process of decorating and furnishing my new place, so that’s been keeping me busy. 


In every job, I’ve found it’s the people that make it for me. And luckily in REALTIME we have the loveliest and friendliest bunch of them. I’m really loving the projects we are fortunate enough to get to work on, too.  

Also, who doesn’t like working from home in baggy clothes or pyjamas five days a week? Being able to do my laundry in the middle of the day too is also a massive bonus. 

People would be surprised that…  

I don’t like glitter or Lotus Biscoff. I also have a Hollywood actor in my phone contacts. 

Advice you’d give yourself if you were just starting out?
