LUEX is and has always been a great experience for me, on many levels. LUEX has a medium-sized team, with experienced professionals, brought together by their love for adventure, Surf and Snow.
As LUEX's Catalog manager, I am in charge of the Online Catalog (all products sold on luex.com) and keeping the content up to date - media content as well as written content.
On a daily basis, I get to work with tools such as Photoshop, extensive Excel Sheets, Magento, Mail Chimp, iMovie, Mantis Bug-tracker and many others.
However, throughout my time at LUEX, I have also had Marketing-related projects. Thus, Google Adwords is no stranger to me, as well as Social Media Marketing Tools.
Preproduction, production and postproduction of the festival would be the quick way to describe my collaboration with Good Mood Entertainment and Boom Festival. The longer and better version is that I have been working with a highly inspiring team, in a rather harsh environment (hot, dry and dusty), towards giving birth to magical festival, enjoyed by 40k visitors.
Boom Festival is a large scaled event, with many logistical challenges, as it is located in mainland Portugal, in the middle of nature, in a hilly valley with no infrastructure and huge festival premisses. My tasks were in-between the office and the field. As a Production Assistant Manager, the most important aspect is to be proactive and make sure that all projects are running smoothly, not only my own.
One of my primary tasks for pre-production was the logistics of signage throughout the whole Festival area - mapping, ordering and implementing, about 1k wooden signs, painted manually by the Boom artists - Quite a complex and lengthy task.
Secondary, but not of less importance, was the accreditation and logistics of all cars allowed in the Festival premises, before and during the festival.
Furthermore, I have also been the coordinator and trainer of the "Welcome team". This team was meant to welcome the guests, inform and guide them with whatever situations might occur.
During the festival I would also spend my shifts managing and fixing logistical issues, emergencies or offer my help for any other department in-need, often with work shifts of over 12 hours.
