Chad

Chad started his career in Paris as a runner on music videos and TVCs for companies such as Soixan7e Quin5e, Irene, El Nino, Iconoclast, and Players Paris, working with directors like Romain Gavras, Megaforce, Jeremie Rozan, François Rousselet, So Me and NAN. He worked his way up to producer before moving back home to Turkey, where he line produces foreign productions shooting in his homeland. 


Since his return, Chad has service produced projects for brands like Apple, Netflix, Piaget Jewelry, Eurosport, Fiat, TUI, and China’s TCL.  He has also ensured a smooth local production in Turkey for Norway’s hit TV series Mammon and TV8 Malaysia’s TV show Hip-Hopin’ Asia. 


Chad is the founding partner and EP of the PSN Turkey shop while also producing commercial films for the domestic market.

Iris

Iris started out as a professional photographer before moving into the world of cinematography, where she has thrived for many years.


She was pulled, kicking and screaming, into the evil land of production because of her uncanny ability to get the job done. Her Austrian DNA gives her ruthless efficiency and professionalism partnered with the adaptability, friendliness, and easy-going nature of a kiwi.


She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the NZAPG (Advertising Producers’ Group) and is a board member of Film Otago Southland.


The founder of PSN New Zealand, Iris is a solution-driven, accomplished pro who has been in the game for a long time working with many of the world’s best directors and production companies. And it’s second nature for her to juggle her work with horse riding and the outdoors.

Andreas

Andreas Tsilifonis is the founder and Executive Producer of the PSN partner in Greece.  He has been an active member of the film production industry in Greece for the last 40 years. He worked as film director, scriptwriter, music composer, and editor for feature films, TV shows, and in numerous commercial films. During the last 20 years he has mainly produced all types of projects. He is now the President of the Greek Producers Association of Communication Tasks (PACT).

Mathieu

Mathieu Dumont has managed hundreds of productions, including commercials, documentaries, music videos, TV series, full-length films, and videos over the past 16 years. He has been in charge of numerous shoots in Canada but also in more than 25 countries all over the world, proving each time he can take on any sort of challenge with brio. In 2014, with his 3 partners, he founded the production house invited to join PSN and offer complete production services to foreign crews filming in Canada. Mathieu is known for his calm attitude in front of the unexpected as well as his great determination.

Zoltan

Zoltan began as a journalist whose research on mass media, particularly TV shows, became a reference still used a decade later by most Hungarian university studies on the topic.  That success led to his founding a production company with his partner, Ivan, where they have both excelled. 
Though initially specialized in documentary production, they soon realized the market potential in Hungary and widened the scope to service productions of genres including commercial, film, TV, corporate, and still photo.

Michael

Production work on commercial, entertainment, and factual shoots for clients from around the world during more than two decades is at the core of Michael’s experience.  Highlights from his years managing production service budgets ranging from modest to over 1 million euros include feature film, sport celebrity shoots, primetime TV programming for all major US & UK channels, and events as diverse as motocross and a papal visit.


This Los Angeles native with a traveler’s soul started his own production service company overseas to share with fellow production professionals the wonders of shooting film, photo, and video projects across Spain and Portugal – the sunniest corner of Europe.  Michael is as quick with a smile as he is committed to no-nonsense production workflow delivering cost-effective, quality results you can see in frame.  He founded the Production Service Network in 2014 to accomplish that worldwide.  He manages PSN from his base in Madrid, Barcelona, or most anywhere he has an Internet connection.

Dmitry

Dmitry started work in video post-production in 1995 and within a few years was producing small-scale commercials art-house style.  His skill set soon saw him move into line production at Radioactive Film, where he worked as Head of Production until 2003.  Being the hands-on guy he is, Dmitry left to found a small production house for the local market called Anomaly Film.


That company soon expanded to service international projects, and by 2006 Dmitry facilitated local services for his first action feature film.  The crises of 2009 compelled Dmitry to reposition and rebrand his company on a larger scale that could cater to different markets for added sustainability. In-house staff grew from a half dozen to 25 employees at his production house and casting studio. Shoot days have surpassed 100 a year since 2010.


Today Dmitry is EP and partner of his own companies as well as the PSN Ukraine Partner with capacity to produce and service commercials, documentaries, music videos, TV series, feature films, and more that are shot in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kazakhstan.  Dmitry is always at the ready to personally lead an international service project with his full attention focused on adapting to client expectations in order to offer cost-effective solutions that uphold quality service.

Dara

It would be impolite to point out how many years Dara has worked in production for, but let's say it's counted in decades rather than years.  Educated in Ireland and Italy, she began her career in a commercials' production company as a fresh faced PA and worked her way up to producer.  She then spent a number of years working in feature film production before returning to her real love, making ads.  Mainly based in Ireland, she spent a few fantastic years running a production company in Nairobi, Kenya before returning to her native Dublin.  She has shot on every continent and has welcomed clients from every continent to Ireland to whom she provides unparalleled production services for commercial, still, and promo productions.

Andrew

Andrew Wareham is a veteran of the industry with over two decades’ experience producing commercials in Australia and round the world. Andrew maintains a philosophy that focuses on a commitment to service and quality reinforced through careful production practices that culminate in great respect amongst clients and crew.

Mikkel

Mikkel Damkiær founded the PSN Denmark shop in 2011 to meet a demand for high-level production service across Scandinavia.  Four years before this entrepreneur, he had founded Produktionen.dk, which is today the biggest rental house for film production vehicles and equipment in the region.


Mikkel’s success at work on feature films, television, stills, and commercial films for top-tier clients from the UK, Germany, and the US has generated repeat business that has seen him expand the company to keep pace without sacrificing the personal touch.
