As part of a mentorship with Screenworks, Felicity had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, shooting a television commercial (TVC) for Australian weight-loss company ‘Lite N Easy.’

“While on set, it was my job as a runner to tend to whatever the crew needed. Things like running errands, collecting catering, assisting wardrobe, transporting talent, helping the art department set up rooms for filming and general housekeeping,” she said.
