    Multimedia Designer1E
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    Working in the broader marketing team, I work to produce high-quality digital collateral. One of my main tasks during my time at 1E has been producing content for the website refresh. This saw me use my skills to create industry-standard video content that will be seen by returning and potential new clients. During this time, I took on new responsibilities such as directing various parties, coordinating between different departments, the delegation of tasks and quality assurance. Recently, I have been working independently on planning future video content to be used as a marketing push for the new brand messaging. This has seen me researching competitors and other B2B companies, analysing the style of video they are creating and why it works. From here, I created a document that describes how 1E should respond. This document outlines what future video content could be, highlighting the importance of style, editing and overall tone for my vision of video content at 1E. Once finalised, this document will be presented to higher management for consideration. My time at 1E has given me an understanding of marketing trends, finding ways in which to utilise and align with these to create engaging and relevant video content with a detailed plan and strategy.

    CompositorInition Ltd
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    In my last term of university, Inition took me on as an intern in the 360 Video | department. Here I learned an array of skills that furthered my understanding of video editing and compositing. In November 2016, I was hired as a full time employee. During my time at Inition I have developed my skill set and knowledge of new and emerging media. Working with 360 3D films work with such clients as Unicef, Rotary International, Tata Communications, The Cornerstone Partnership and many others. These projects have taken me to many different parts of the world, enhancing my ability to adapt to different situations. More recently with my growing knowledge of Adobe After Effects, I worked as a motion graphics artist for the upcoming Fast & Furious Live production, which is scheduled to travel all around the world. This project saw me tackle challenges that I have not experienced before, problem solving saw me produce industry standard results. Another project saw me working as a compositor for a virtual reality experience for The Shard. Lastly, I am responsible for video case study production for inition and other clients. This requires me to create films that capture projects and events in an appealing way to use as promotion and on social media. Another responsibility see’s me working at events, showcasing the work that I have helped produce and making sure that things are running as they should be. This role requires me to work with precision and careful time management in order to achieve client’s expectations and exceed them. I have also been allocated my own interns, passing on my knowledge and skills of his fast paced and ever changing media industry.
