About me

 

I’ve worked in set design mainly as an assistant, since completing a BA in Film Studies, on low budget shorts and feature films, music videos, photo shoots and events. Through my experience, I've gained valuable knowledge in developing projects from conception to completion as well as dealing with set dressing, working with large props, prop styling and set striking. I have strong set decorating and scale model skills as well as experience as a props buyer, stand-by art direction, set striking and graphic design. I have worked assisting for fashion campaigns such as ASOS 2012 Christmas campaign as well as events such as weddings, Brighton Pride and Secret cinema. I also possess excellent skills in admin, project research, editing and filming, liaising with clients, as I did working for Bolder Creek Intl, a film distribution company. I’m also skilled in Sketch up, Technical Drawing and Photoshop, knowledge I put to use giving tutorials to students, while working as an online technical support assistant for London Met University. I am resourceful and knowledgeable of prop houses in London, I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy working collaboratively as much as I do individually.
