I am about to complete my postgraduate degree in Film & Television Producing at Royal Holloway University and am looking for work in the film & Television industry. During my undergraduate degree, I have written and directed several short films, the latest of which is currently in post-production. Typically, I like to produce content that deals with prominent social issues, such as mental health and image. This theme is central to my current film, ‘The Road Ahead’ in which the protagonist tries to come to terms with the loss of her family. I don’t think we see the complexity of these themes enough, and it is something I want to develop in future projects. In December 2019, I had a week's work experience on ITV's Loose Women as a runner. This experience was extremely beneficial and allowed me to shadow the show's producers and editors as well as gain a hands on experience as to what the role of a runner involves. I am extremely engaged with modern social media platforms, having active accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay connected to the Industry and changes in it and new releases. I make use of my Twitter and Letterbox accounts to share my opinions and reviews of films and Television programmes as well as engaging with likeminded people's thoughts. Alongside this, I have a blog as a platform to document and share my interest in Film, Television among other interests, such as photography. I am very keen on creating a career pathway on the production side of the industry, therefore am looking for roles such as runners or a production assistant to start out. However, I aspire to go down the Producing aiming in the long run to become a producer as well as working in the festival sector. However, I am interested in gaining work experience in both the film and Television industries to gain experience in the entertainment industry and to become familiar and experienced in the runnings of productions. I have worked on Student films (and shorts alongside my degree), varying between roles (Editor, Sound Designer, Cinematographer, Art Director, Producer and Director) which has helped in gaining a wider understanding of the industry and what is involved in creating a polished product. Through these roles, my confidence in editing and camerawork has developed as well as my ability to work well in a team, especially as I adopted the role of Director for one short, enabling me to lead others and support my fellow members. Alongside this, I am a Film Studies Student Representative and Ambassador at my University, so good communication amongst both the students and those leading the course is essential. Through this, I have been able to actively get involved with the Film course and my fellow students. I have worked at Oxford Film Festival and London's FrightFest Horror festival in which I was able to gain some hands on experience working at film festivals and interacting directly both with filmmakers and those who are fellow film enthusiasts! This job enabled me to develop my social skills, as interacting with the public was central to my role and was key to ensure that the festival ran smoothly. Outside of University work, I am a member of the British Film Institute and I frequently try to attend talks and events at BAFTA and The British Film Institute as well as attend as an audience member to Television shows, such as 'The Graham Norton Show' and 'The Jeremy Vine Show' as a means of gaining an understanding of the running of a production.
