I've been working as an Assistant Producer at Vevo over the last three years. I'm a passionate team player that has always taken a perfectionist approach to my work. I believe I have a creative eye and have been developing my filming, editing and content creation skills and I want to be in a position where I can continue to learn and grow. My prior background was from the film industry working out of NYC and Dubai in which I gained a perspective of tentpole level feature films working in the production office and wardrobe. In my spare time I like learning how to make clothes, I compose music and love to dance!
My current role at Vevo involves working alongside the Head of Original Content, and producers to create exciting and innovate content with artists. Our output is a mixture of interview pieces, short form formats and live sessions – shot in both the UK and Europe. I am involved at every stage of the process - developing format ideas, pitching strands to the rest of the team, technical production (shooting, lighting and editing) and ensuring delivery is on time and within budget.
This position involved researching and identifying possible locations for films, commercials and music videos. Through this role I developed a great range of contacts, who have proved incredibly useful for future roles. The role needed a high level of self organisation, and the ability to negotiate with owners for projects.
I didn't go to university. After college I chose to live in Abu Dhabi and Dubai to work in the film industry in production and the camera department. Feature films that I worked on included Star Wars Episode 7, Fast and Furious 7 and a local Emirate film called Sea Shadow.
