What people say.
Sharon was Line Producer on my award-winning short film ‘Beyond the Bubble’. Pre-production for this film was only a few short weeks.
Sharon was fantastic! We were shooting at 7 locations in Sydney's CBD over 3 days with a live-action crew, actors and 20 extras. With Sharon’s contribution, everything ran smoothly. Sharon helped to secure crew, location permits, she worked out transport logistics, negotiated for better rates on gear, managed the budget and schedule, sent out call sheets, and was a great support to me in any moments of panic!
Sharon is intelligent, collaborative, efficient and calm under pressure. I had a wonderful experience working with Sharon on Beyond the Bubble and I look forward to working with her again.

I have had the pleasure of working with Sharon Abela on a number of film and television productions that I have directed over the past few years. Some of these productions have included digital content for 3M in conjunction with TEDx Sydney, a TV promo for NITV’s “The Point” with STan Grant, and most recently on a major TVC campaign for GlaxoSMith Kline where we produced a number of commercials for their Panadol and Voltaren products.
Throughout all my dealings with Sharon I’ve found her to be professional, efficient, reliable and committed to the task at hand. But what impresses me the most about Sharon, aside from these qualities, is the unwavering positive energy she brings to a job. Sharon’s good nature, thoughtfulness and sense of humour are an invaluable asset, which can light up even the most cahllenging and stressful shoots.
Director - The Milk Bar
It is with great pleasure that I recommend the producing services provided by Sharon Abela who has been working with me in a freelance capacity for over 3 years. In my career, very few people rise to the top of my list that possess such a wide range of skills and qualities. She is an exceptionally talented producer who can handle everything from big budget productions to smaller projects.
She is an excellent communicator and a natural manager. Without exception, her projects are smartly produced and budgeted and she never looses sight of the big picture objectives or the smallest detail. Both crews and clients love working with her. You will not be disappointed.
Director of Photography
From a Cinematographers perspective, Sharon’s extensive knowledge of the creative process, techniques and equipment is incredibly helpful.
I always feel supported to achieve the best I can do even in a time poor environment. A solution based, completely unique individual, who is always fiercely loyal to the safety and wellbeing of every crew-member.
Working with Sharon Abela is always an enjoyable experience.
