I'm Renée Bellamy, a filmmaker and artist born and based in South East London. I enjoy documenting and finding beauty within my surroundings and capturing them in the mediums of dance, illustration, photography & film, which allows me to work with these mediums simultaneously.Locked Pro Plan feature
Production Runner on "Happy Family" Sundara Karma, directed by Stroma Cairns.
During my internship at PRETTYBIRD, I gained a valuable insight into various aspects of their day to day running and was able to help both in the office and in productions. As part of my internship I worked as runner on "Still Not Over You" - Klyne, directed by Margot Bowman and Tate Britain: David Hoyle "God Is Watching", directed by Matt Lambert.
As part of my work with my student union, I worked as choreographer and production manager for Arts Dance's first show, held on the 31st of March 2017. I was involved with all aspects of the show, right from its initial starting point, right through to the performance. The show was a success, gaining sponsorships from Leon and Danceworks and in selling out all tickets.
I worked as an assistant for director and voiceover artist Johnny Daukes, on a BBC Radio 4 Comedy titled 'Cracking Up'. My work was completed over two periods, the first between May and June 2015, and the latter during June and July 2016.
I assisted director and voice over artist Johnny Daukes, on three music videos for musician, Bird.
I worked as a part time sales advisor in Topshop's flagship store in Bluewater Shopping Centre. Here I improved my communication skills, commercial awareness and ability to work well under pressure in a busy environment.
During my three year course at London College of Communication, I gained a firm understanding of creating content for the film and television industries (including online platforms) and experimented with various formats and production roles. I found myself to be strongest with directing and art direction and I'm now in a position where I'm ready to use these skills outside of an educational environment.
My foundation diploma in Art and Design facilitated a great deal of experimentation and allowed me to come to the decision that pursuing film and television was for me.
