Motivated, organised and creative, I am passionate about storytelling and I love teamwork. I have a great understanding of digital production.
I think storytelling is one of the most important ways we can inspire empathy for others and the planet. I seek to make an impact on audiences.
I’ve always been immensely curious about the entertainment and arts, taking part in local theatrical productions from a young age. My ambition is to one day be a professional film producer.
Churchill Academy (Secondary Education)
I attended the performing arts school Churchill Academy from 2011 to 2016. Although I did not enjoy and quite frankly resented studying academics, I was delightfully satisfied with my chosen subjects Drama, Music, and Music Technology.
My favourite activity at secondary school was Technical Theatre. I had been apart of a technical theatre extracurricular club from year eight. I very much enjoyed the technical side which I chose instead of performing in drama for my final two years. During my time at the club, I operated and designed lighting for many shows as well as taking part as stage crew in several theatres across the UK. This comprehensive experience in production, lighting, and sound over four years gave me the basis of lighting and sound skills for film.
In my GCSE Music, I learned how to compose music, creating two pieces of film music. This experience helped me to compose my own music for my films using Cubase. Studying music technology I was given the opportunity to produce an album with a band and be on the technical team for live performances. This really enhanced my skills and knowledge of audio and music production.
Weston College (Further Education)
I studied an Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production at Weston College from September 2016 to June 2018. This course really pushed me as a content creator and media producer. My tutors were excellent, always stretching my ability and setting me new personal challenges.
I was taught all about the production process of planning, shooting, and post; including terminology, job responsibilities, and admin. I was involved in many workshops to develop my technical skills. This course was based heavily on practical.
Throughout the course, there were 19 units all focusing on different aspects of media. This includes radio, factual tv, live tv, media theories, genre, industry and many more. My most favourite units were the most practical and creative ones, documentary, 3 genres short film, music video, film trailer, client brief, and final major project.
Screenology (Higher Education)
Since September 2018 I have been studying for a Bachelor's Degree in Film Production at Screenology in Bristol, UK. Screenology is not your average conventional film school. They believe in lean filmmaking, making a film with a small turn-around and minimal lectures. They preach self-teaching codes and practices that will improve your productivity. I have spent most of my degree choosing exactly what I wanted to do and making my own mistakes in the field.
In April 2019, I and three students from Weston College and Screenology formed a limited partnership with the aim of providing film/video production services, gain an understanding of commercial video, and build a brand. My responsibilities included communications, contracts and negotiation with clientele, while keeping my peers focused and on-schedule when fulfilling briefs. I also prepared call sheets, risk assessments, shot lists and filed annual returns and accounts to companies house.
