• I have just finished an internship in an online magazine dealing with content such as fashion, beauty, lifestyle, music and film. • I had multiple responsibilities that varied on a daily basis. I created content through multiple mediums whether it be written, photographical or video. I had to make sure I was highly organized and make sure I had my schedule up to date so I could get everything done in a time efficient manner. • I also pulled clothes for photoshoots, transported the items and dressed the models, helping choose what outfits fitted the themes of the shoot. This was something I enjoyed as I was able to work off my own initiative. • I edited content for social media mainly using Final Cut Pro and Photoshop. • I organized photoshoots ringing and booking venues, models and crew for the day of the shoot. This required organization and good people skills as a lot of the work being done was unpaid. • I enjoyed the varied workload and being a creative person I love being involved in every aspect.
• I worked on a television show called Northsiders and we shot the pilot episode. • On this project I was the first assistant director, in this role I worked very closely with the actors, director and producer. • I assigned call sheets for every day of shooting; this was a challenge as we had to work around everyone’s schedule. • I drew up release forms for actors, crew and locations and made sure that everyone signed them before shooting any scene on a day to day basis. • We had a small enough crew so I also took notes on continuity and kept track of the slate numbers. • This was probably one of the most challenging roles for me as I was in charge of mostly everything that was needed on set on a day to day basis; this involved organizing locations, making sure actors knew where they needed to be and making sure everything went smoothly.
• I spent the summer of 2012 working in the catering side of the Ashford Studios in Co. Wicklow. Here I got to spend time with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd assistant directors, who gave me a chance to work on Vikings production as an assistant director. • Here I got to see the whole process in action, while locking off areas for filming; bringing the cast to and from the set and liaising with the other assistant directors making sure everything was ready to start filming. • I loved every minute of this process and after this experience I knew that this was the area that I wanted to pursue.
• I was previously working in a voluntary radio station called FRQfm. This radio station was set up as a digital radio station that trained the up and coming DJ’s for corporate radio. I was recommended following my work experience in Spin 103.8. • I did a music show once a week with added segments of my own. Here I built up a lot of confidence talking on air. I gained experience of ‘thinking on my feet’ as, working in the studio on my own; I had to deal with problems that occurred whilst still maintaining a high quality show. • I left this radio station after eight months having gained a lot of experience in both writing for radio and presenting.
I studied everything from photography to film to web design and radio
