Personal Statement

Andy Kelk Image

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do” – Steve Jobs 

An experienced Production Manager (PMA) with the skills and abilities to make a positive difference. CAPM and Prince2 qualified with Covid certification. Trained as a Floor Manager and 1st Assistant Director with a spell of Location Producing thrown in for good measure. Experienced in managing both small and large productions delivering high quality broadcast material while observing budget and schedule restraints. Credits include, entertainment, fixed rig, quiz, factual, reality, talent led, studio, location, live and recorded productions. 

Strengths lie in people management, collaboration and negotiation with the ability to develop and motivate the production team. Ability to keep the project on the critical path, maintaining editorial objectives and always aiming to deliver a “win win” scenario for all stakeholders while focusing on the project objectives. Past productions have benefited from my reliability, focus, passion and dry sense of humor brought to every project while respecting colleague views and values. Promoting and developing  teamwork to create good production moral and productivity.

When not working on the "current" project I like to  keep up to date with current affairs, the current pandemic scenarios and the media Industry through theatre, film, when permitted, and television. Hobbies include  the world of rugby union, being a former Sevenoaks player, a current Northampton Saints fan and past witness to England winning the 2003 world cup, while based in Sydney Australia.

Other abilities include quick-thinking and operating under considerable pressure while appreciating the bigger picture while being focused and effective.

One of three boys, Andy and his twin Michael were born at St Teresa’s hospital, Wimbledon in the early 60s, Robin his younger brother was born just 11 months later. Following several months based in Colchester the young Kelk family then  relocated to Cambridge, a stones throw away from Brunswick Primary school which all three brothers attended and became enthusiastic members of the 26th Cambridge cub pack.

Mum (Brenda) ran a nursery from  the family house (The Willows)  while Dad (Chris) built up their theatre lighting business. In 1970 the kelk family relocated to “Willingham”, a village 8miles north of Cambridge due to the “Willows being compulsorily purchased, demolished and redeveloped.  The family then relocated again three years later to the next door village “Rampton” providing much needed space for both the business and growing family. While living in “Rampton” all three boys attended Cottenham Village College between 1973 – 1979.

Andy continued his education and developed his interest in the Arts further by attending Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge where he took full advantage of their purpose built theatre complex. Following his time in higher education Andy then benefited from  gaining just one of 16 available Stage Management Diploma places at London University, Central School of Speech and Drama in 1980.

Further to gaining his Diploma in 1982 and working as a Stage Manager on several theatre productions in the suburbs,  Andy was employed by Thames Television in Teddington, Middlesex as a Floor Assistant working on a wide variety of productions ranging from : Mike Yarwood, Des O’Connor and Benny Hill to Name that Tune, The Bill, The secret diary’s of Adrian Mole and Rainbow.

However, in order for Andy to move up the production ladder he made the move to LWT as a Assistant Floor Manager in 1987 where he worked on many of their “stable” shows including : Blind Date, Michael Aspel, Beadle, Agatha Chrities’s Poirot, Walden, Barrymore and many sport Productions. Andy was made up to Floor Manager in 1988 and senior Floor Manager in 1990 where he took responsibility for running The Royal Variety Performance, Audience with the Bee Gees, Kylie Minogue and many others in the series, Saturday night Live, Hale and Pace, Gladiators, The Big Stage with Jonathan Ross and many more.

It was during this period at LWT that Andy got invited to work with the in-house factual department on their True Crimes and Strange but true series. This new avenue of work introduced Andy to the role of Assistant Director and Production Manager and led him to work on London’s Burning and Dark Ages which he found fulfilled his creative “bent” while at the same time allowing him to demonstrate his logistic and organisational skills.

This very productive period of Andy’s career began a long and happy relationship with LWT factual department which culminated in 2001 when he was asked to be the Location Producer of the initial “I'm a celebrity – Get me out of here!” production. Andy contributed his experience from the outset and became a key member of the project team developing  & molding the series into the success it remains today.

Andy has always appreciated the opportunity to travel and work abroad while working and was delighted to be involved with the filming of “Survivor” in Borneo, Re-born in the USA in the states, TV Sports Quiz series filmed in Nigeria and I’m a Celebrity – Get me out of here! in Australia.

In 1992 Andy took the offer of the redundancy package and went freelance and has continued to work for many production companies and broadcasters ever since.  Andy’s CV continues to grow while he works on both small and large team projects, gaining many transferable skills and welcomes the opportunity to discuss other projects in the future.

Andy is always looking for ways to enhance his own development to create a “win win” scenario or all concerned and it is to this end that Andy undertook the successful study of the Prince2 and CAPM Project Manager qualifications during 2016/17 adding to his transferable skills.


K6LKS Property Ltd

K6LKS PROPERTY continues to take an interest in renovating Kent based projects having completed the successful purchase negotiation, renovation and subsequent sale of South East based property.

KPL benefits from many transferable skills gained from working in the media industry over many years. The ability to schedule, budget, negotiate, communicate and project manage at all levels allows the team to progress positively.  

Going forward, the aim is to build up a portfolio of properties either to  “flip” in the short term to raise sufficient cash flow or rent out to achieve a passive income long term.

Covid has certainly tried its best to slow down the property portfolio journey this year but the ambition still remains and continues brick by brick. 

K6LKS PROPERTY welcomes the opportunity to discuss future projects with interested parties and looks forward to exploring all avenues.   

Creating Swans from Ugly ducklings is the challenge and we look forward  to meeting them head on.
