Recently graduated in BA (Hons) Set Design for Screen at UAL’s Wimbledon College of Arts, here I developed the technical skills to excel within the art department of film and television. Having always had a passion for spacial design, experience in film has allowed me to adapt this passion to the lens and narrative. I have been described as being a professional and hard working individual with adaptable skills and focused on the detail. The roles I have most enjoyed have been on set in standby art direction, as well as developing my skills in hand drafting and graphics design.Locked Pro Plan feature
Mainly assisting the graphics department, I helped to design and make props as well as design and dress background graphics such as notice boards, boxes, bottles, etc.
During this work placement, I began assisting the props department and then moved into the graphics department. Here I assisted in cutting out graphics and dressing them into set or to finish props. I had lots of fun working in this team and working on such a large scale production.
This work placement taught me all about the art departments role during filming. It taught me how to solve problems simply, quickly and effectively. To predict problems. To record how the set should always appear, even through changing angles. To talk to people from every department and to understand their roles too.
This was my first experience on a large scale production. I was able to work between many different departments to find which one I best suited before settling firmly within the art department. I was mostly assisted as a scenic painter during my this work placement.
This degree gave me the skills I need to excel in the art department of film and TV. With excellent teachers in hand drafting, CAD drawing, sketchup model making, white card models, colour models, etc. The course also taught me about the importance of research and understanding the collaborative nature of the this career. It allowed me to gain experience with lots of different types of crews, working with professionals through work placements but also seeing projects through from start to finish with high quality student filmmakers.
The foundation course steered me to the direction of film and television by offering work placements at Bay Studios, Swansea. I loved the experiences I had there on both small and large scale productions, persuading me to consider applying to Wimbledon College of Arts in order to get the right training for this career path.
