Bjela Hrábková

Why do crews like you?
I’m straightforward and honest with all people involved.

What don’t they like about you?
Apparently, I sometimes look like a grumpy person, but I’m just immersed in my thoughts.

What do you like about your job?
The diversity of each project; each day is different.

What don’t you like about it?
When I plan something in advance, I can’t be quite sure that I won’t have to cancel it a few days before as some new project is confirmed.

What’s most important to you in your job?
Learning new things all the time.

Who do you like to work with?
With people devoted to the project, willing to go one step further.

How do you remember your beginnings?
Early mornings in the bus heading uphill towards the Barrandov Studios.

What’s your favourite project you’ve worked on?
I don’t have my favourite project, but I certainly have a bunch of good memories, even of the jobs that felt hellish at the time.

Bjela was born in Prague but spent her childhood in Holland. When she returned to her homeland after the Velvet Revolution, she got into production and never quit. As for Amazing, she’s been on the board from the very beginning. She’s worked as a PA, post-pro manager, directors’ researcher, producer, creative assistant and who the hell can remember all the positions she’s gone through. She just knows well what she does.
