About me

Hello, my names Louise Dawson, and I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in June 2015, where I studied 'Digital Film & Television' in Glasgow. Upon graduating, I went on to work as an edit assistant for Season 2 of CBBC's 'Eve', having also worked on Season 1 while still studying. It was here that I realised where my true passion lies. I thrive in working in an office and an on-set environment, and I knew my personality was more suited to the pre-production and production stages of Film/TV. I love to organise and work in a team to create ideas and over come challenges. Working with people plays a huge part in what motivates me as a person. It provides me with a great energy, and it was for that reason I decided to make the scary move down to London in the hope of getting into production/assistant directing work, ....and I haven't looked back. I have a huge love for this industry having studied both Film and Television for years, and I'm so excited to see where the path may lead me in the future. I have a lot to give and love creating my own body of work as a writer/director too. Recently my short film 'Starfish' won an RTS Scotland Student award for 'Best Drama' in January 2016. I've also been nominated for a BAFTA New Talent Scotland Award for 'Best Factual' as producer of the documentary 'Late Night in Glasgow'.
