Alexandra Barbone


To find a position as a Production Associate in which I can execute my production skills and contribute positively to the creation of a quality television program.


I am passionate about television and film, travel, cooking and trying new foods, music, and any creative arts and crafts.  I would love to work for a program that focuses on travel, cooking, music, or design, or on an entertainment-based news or talk-show program.


I am an Ithaca College graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Video Production. I recently relocated to Los Angeles after working for over a year as an Assistant Director and Video Editor at a top ABC affiliate local news station. Since moving here I have been freelancing as a Production Assistant on many television shows and films. Prior to that I was a freelance Production Assistant and have had multiple internships where I acted as an Assistant. I am eager to begin my production career in Los Angeles. My technical skills, my passion for creating media, and my dedication to hard work make me a great candidate for employment. I am familiar with Mac and PC operating systems, and I am proficient in Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, and Final Cut Pro. I am very organized, punctual, and pay high attention to detail.
