I'm a 19-years-old girl at the very beginning of my career. All I want to do is work ( or volunteer ) on different TV and film projects. I'd love to work for the production team where I could assist with all the paper work, emails, phone calls and managing people. I also have a broad knowledge (broad, because I only just finished my first year at university!) of pre production and post production. I have recently made a short documentary film all by myself (mainly for my degree). Currently, I am a production manager for the short film 'Kinetic' that will be premiered in June this year.
I was a production manager for the short film "Kinetic". My duties included: - Budgeting the entire project; - Organise funding for the entire project; - Location scouting; - Organising film license; - Making sure everyone knows what to do on the set; - Organising venue for the film premiere; - Assisting with applying to film festivals around the world.
Work experience: I was volunteering for Sustrans, a charity that promotes greener choices of transport to prevent environment damage. As a researcher, I was conducting a survey to find out how we can encourage teenage girls to chose cycling as one of their method of transport. As an office admin assistant, my duties included backing up the server, picking up the phone, booking rooms and attending meetings. I also worked with a Media Team to make a blog post summarising my experience (please see attached link to my blog post).
The practical component of this course offers training in videography, editing, photography and specialistic software. It allows me to develop my understanding of film production, step by step from pre production to post production. As a result, I am able to create documentary films that focus on a wide range of anthropological and sociological issues. These skills are definitely transferable, and whatever I have learned so far making documentaries films I apply them in making short and fictional films.
