A Day In The Life Of: David Lomas

Verve has a short but sweet interview with David, the producer of Lost & Found, one of Verve co-editor Jude’s favourite TV shows.

 

“My life is two worlds,” says David. “I’m out of town filming Lost & Found for about six months of the year. In between the shoots I’m researching and overseeing the production of the programme.”

 

AM:

I’m almost always up at about 5.30am and by 6am off for a run around Westhaven. I run most days. When I am away filming it’s a great way to see a city and spot locations for both filming and dining. If I don’t run I head to work early so I can duck out to the gym after the morning rush.

 

AM:

My black Vespa scooter is my daily companion, no matter the weather. I just love riding it. Work and all the great Ponsonby cafes are just four parking-hassle-free minutes away.

 

AM:

Lost & Found is an all-consuming beast. We get about 1,500 applications a year and each morning reading the new requests for help is a heart-breaking task. So many people are wanting to find family and we can do so few.

 

AM:

I’m back on my scooter and, if I did not run early, I’m off to the gym. Otherwise it is direct to one of the Ponsonby or Jervois Road cafes for breakfast, coffee and a read of the paper.

 

PM:

I’m either checking scripts, voicing guide tracks for my editor or researching stories. There are just three of us in Lost & Found office so sometimes we pop down to College Hill Cafe for a coffee meeting there.

 

PM:

Travel is a massive part of my job. I do up to 100 flights a year, including a few trips to Europe. Setting up trips is a logistical nightmare as we juggle the schedules of up to three families both in New Zealand and overseas.

 

PM:

If it is summer I’m on my scooter across the bridge to Takapuna for a swim. In winter I’ll meet a friend for a wine or an early movie. Otherwise it is home to cook myself dinner and some relaxing telly—a good drama or a rugby game.
