I consider myself to be a conscientious, punctual and trustworthy character, working well within a team yet equally confident when working individually. Although at my best when being creative I can adapt to any role I am assigned and like to transfer my skills to contribute positively, to any working environment. I am a quick learner with a vibrant, optimistic and inquisitive personality so love to meet new people and engage with new ideas. Having recently graduated from Ravensbourne university and leaving with a first class honours in digital film production, I have gained a vast knowledge of Film and Filmmaking, a career path I am determined to pursue.
My Beautiful City is a Creative production agency based in London and New york. I entered the comany as an intern, initially working on staple events such as London Fashion week.Then gradually assertng my self as a prodution assistant and often back stage man- ager at many high profile events such as The Evening Standard Theatre Awards, The Ser- pentine Summer Party and most recentlyVersusVersace Presentation.The roles included Budget Handling ,Artist and Client Liaison,Creative concept development for events/ shows, Graphic Design, Model Management, Location Scouting/Booking and Research.
Working closely with the Senior Marketing Manager I learnt to develop innovative and creative social media content plans, manage the editorial calendar and implement social media advertising campaigns. I Consistenly wrote copy, updated their Website content and designed their Weekly Programmes for all 12 Venues.
I traveled to the US to be the sole Camera operator on a documentary about Straight per- formers in gay adult film.The director and I travelled alone throughout California and Texas, meeting with adult film theorist and performers and interviewing them in contextual settings. It was an extremely eye opening experience that really tested my ability to multitask and adapt to entirely new surroundings. I gained an instnctive ability to design light and shoot a set with very limited resrces.The film was shortlisted at a number of international film festivals.
Sponsored by Red Bull Breaking points, is an innovative music led interactive experience ran by a collective by the name of‘brknppl’.A collective of artists founded by myself would once a month, in an unusual space ie; a launderette, butchers or car park, transform the space into an open gallery whereby musicians, actors, poets, filmmakers, illustrators, dancers and more could exhibit their work under the guise of a club night. The events are always incredibly rewarding and have definitely refined my ability to curate, produce and promote events.
For over a year I regularly produced, shot and edited short promotional videos for several of London’s best club nights. Capturing a wide variety of artists, DJ’s and performers from all over the world.The opportunity really encouraged a signature style and form within my cinematography and editing in live music, high-pressured environments.
