About me

For the last 6 months I have been working as a VFX production assistant on Ready Player One at Industrial Light and Magic, learning about the vfx pipeline, and the role of production staff in post prodcution of a film. Alongside my fulltime work I have been ivolved in a number of freelance projects, editing music videos, fashion shorts and corperate promotional material. Doing this alongside my job as a VFX PA has helped me to continue to develop my editing skills and knowledge and build my contact. In the 3 years prior, I was studying BA(Hons) Film Production at the Arts University Bournemouth Film School, during that time I developed an in-depth knowledge of many roles within the industry. Working on short and long for films, commercials, music videos, and promotional and corporate videos, seeing the project through from pre production to post. I also largely took on the role of script supervisor when on set, helping to develop my organisation skills and attention to detail, as well as my ability to create efficient, detailed notes whilst multi tasking within departments. This also gave me a chance to observe the workings or set life and the roles of individuals. My previous work history and education has meant I have acquired a set of skills and personal attributes that have led me to persue a career in the film and media business. I also have passion for writing. I am currently working on a short animation series with an AUB collegue and persuing my own literary ideas. Having a background in retail, I also have an interest in fashion and enjoy working on fashion films as an editor.
