Harmony McKenzie - July Spotlight
Harmony McKenzie - Supervisor, Programming & Production
What is your current job title?
Supervisor, Programming & Production
What steps did you take to get where you are today?
I volunteered anywhere and everywhere I could early on in my career (and still do today when the opportunity arises). I once applied to a job that didn't end up hiring me, but followed up with an offer to volunteer on set. That led to more paid work down the road and a lot of great contacts!
If you couldn’t do this job anymore, what would you want to do?
Public/community relations. It's a trasnferable skill and I love people and interacting in the community so don't think I could stray away from that aspect of my current job.
If you could be a part of any film / tv show in history, what would it be, and why?
Friends. I can't imagine there was ever a day on set that wasn't fun! Who wouldn't want to get paid to laugh all day?
What important thing have you learned while working in this industry?
Making mistakes is part of growth. There are so many things that are easy to "mess up" but they're ultimately what make you better at your job and as a person.
