*1st AD* Laura Mihartescu


'I was born in Romania, raised in Germany and lived for more than a year in the United States. I have a multi-national family background which enables me to be comfortable in any international work setting’.

Laura is equally at home with thousands of extras,  complex action scenes or intimate scenes with fragile actors. She is very detail orientated and strategically organized. Her outstanding communication skills are coupled with the ability to form strong alliances with director, producers and all head of department.

She is a master scheduler who has a valuable on set presence. She knows how to get the work done but more importantly how to get production value on screen.

Laura brings experience, loyalty, dedication and passion to every production she is working on.

With 15 years of experience, she is an extreme asset in prep through wrap.

Based in Berlin, Laura is available to work worldwide.
