Currently I work as a Videographer, though my job role and skill set is much more varied and I wish to utilise other skills. As well as working on video projects in house for a variety of clients, I am also tasked as a Photographer, copywriter and animator. I script, storyboard, shoot, edit and then I sometimes even push out my content on social media for a range of clients, from NHS to leisure centres and regional councils to construction firms. The variety in this role has given me the skills and confidence to work closely with clients to deliver projects, use the Adobe suite proficiently and importantly develop a broader knowledge base. In my previous role as a project coordinator, some of my duties included shot scheduling using CMS, detailed image checks and file management. I collaboratively worked to client briefs with a fast-paced turnaround meaning that deadlines were crucial and scheduling was key. Prior to this, my role as a Marketing Assistant developed my skills in producing engaging content for social media. Utilising my copywriting skills, I wrote content for printed media and online blogs. I built relationships with clients and attended networking events to promote the company. I don’t take myself too seriously, but I work hard and thrive in a friendly and collaborative environment.Locked Pro Plan feature
My role at Cornerstone is varied and inclusive of different areas of the business. As a Videographer, my focus is on developing concepts and bringing those to life. I assemble the pre-production elements, write the script, design a storyboard, film and then edit the finished piece. Although video is my prime focus in this role, my working week is highly varied and encompasses many other skills. Photography and Video go hand in hand, and I work as a photographer on location with clients, and as a re-toucher to deliver final edited pieces. My copywriting experience has enabled me to work on projects using these skills. My online training has expanded into increased knowledge of SEO and writing for marketing.
My role here as a project coordinator required strong organisation and people skills. On a daily basis, I downloaded RAW files from our Photographers and marked these shots off against our CMS. Whilst doing this, I checked for any issues with the artwork / site which has been shot. I assisted the studio manager with a variety of tasks daily, including picking locations, client delivery and photographer briefing. As Team Leader, I oversaw the smooth running of projects and used different programs to ensure we worked efficiently and to a high standard. Daily, I reviewed all processed shots, checking the quality and ensuring that the photographs met our requirements. My interpersonal skills came in to use when liaising with the photographers and retouchers and I displayed strong written skills when completing photography permission requests for public areas.
A design and development company in the heart of Nottingham. Life at G2 was varied and I got involved in lots of different projects. One day storyboarding a promotional video, the next day writing copy for the monthly design blog. When I wasn't dreaming about the designs from the blog, I was producing Vines, sending out Tweets or finding interesting local tech/design news to talk about online! I'm no stranger to Google analytics and whilst actively promoting the business in a variety of creative ways, I used analytics to make sure that they actually worked! I liked to keep a sneaky eye on our competitors and make sure that we were promoting the unique qualities which really make the company stand out.
My time here was dedicated to learning more about the local music scene, creating connections and booking lineups for local venues. Passionate about music, and enthusiastic about learning more about event organisation, I thrived in this role and enjoyed my time there.
This work placement enabled me to gather experience in the events and promotions department of a Newspaper. I arranged 2 print competitions for the newspaper and worked with the design department to create a final design. The competitions required me to find prizes from local businesses, and so I spoke face to face with many local companies to arrange prizes to be given away. The other side of this placement focussed on working in the Newsroom. I went out on visits with the Photographers to gather stories to be written up for print. I found meeting people, and gathering information for an article, highly rewarding.
