I am a multimedia journalist and aspiring documentarian with a focus on telling stories that have been ignored or marginalised within minority communities.
Working with Reprezent provided me with weeks of intensive radio training on topics such as audio editing and creating vox pops. I also reported live at the 2019 London Youth Games and presented my own radio show using the skills I had acquired over the duration of the programme.
Produced the Willesden Green Library Documentary. This role included researching and collecting interviews, making sure consent forms had been completed. As a trainee, I was introduced to documentary film theory and practices which assisted with my role.
Understanding of media relations, client liaison, business development, digital and social media campaigns as well as a clear working knowledge of a busy comms agency. This includes researching media lists, contacting journalists and administrative tasks such as assisting with the organisation of office events.
Produced, directed and edited a 90 second PSA in response to a brief Was taught how to use Premiere Pro by industry experts such as Tim and Barry within 6 weeks. Introduced to specialist areas of post-production through talks and workshops with companies such as Framestore. The film was also judged by an expert panel including representatives from RSA Films.
Writing articles about stories happening in the South London area and collecting information through interviews, word of mouth and social media. Pitched articles about topics I believed were important and should have more attention.
As a Student Community Champion I was tasked with generating community engagement with university schemes and events. I was able to do this with the creation of events (promoted through social media and word of mouth) to promote schemes and positive relations between students and permanent residents.
