Kezia Sheard

Assistant Producer / Development AP, Button Down

Ones to Watch 2023

Before landing her first professional role at RDF television, Kezia’s love of filmmaking began as a student in Edinburgh, where she crafted an award-winning short film on the Scottish Italian community. Now Kezia works across factual production and development at regional indie Button Down.

Recently, Kezia pitched & won a prime-time documentary series commission with Channel 4. Seeing it through to delivery, she is determined to create a returning format with international sales.

Kezia particularly enjoys working on ideas with warm human stories at their heart and her production credits include Grierson-nominated Dementia & Us and Broadcast-nominated Brickies.

A supremely talented creative who backs-up her razor-sharp editorial instincts with an unerring ability to get ambitious projects over the line.
