Quick witted, innovative and motivated recent graduate with a lifetime of experience. I have been a crew-member of film and tv sets from a very young age and have acclimatized to the fast paced working environment. Passion for filmmaking and the creative industry: I was the director of my group’s graduation film My Brother, Jude which was voted Best Film by fellow course mates; I am currently directing 3 music videos; and I am a presenter on a company-run YouTube channel called Mutha - about sustainability and conscious living.
Presenter for the Mutha YouTube Channel about sustainability and conscious living. Responsibilities include: • Multi-Tasking: I completed my degree whilst working as a presenter. I created a timetable with important submissions and developed a filming schedule to minimize disruption to my studies. Gained excellent multi-tasking and scheduling skills. • Promotion: Posted promotional content on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat to promote my videos. This included promotional assets from the company and original content. Learnt good distribution skills and my videos on Mutha are the most viewed in their category. • Attention To Small Detail: Responsible for creative research and writing weekly web- episodes; because the show is revolved around the topic of sustainability it was necessary to do the topic justice with valid information. I wrote the latest episode that is up on the Mutha YouTube channel, it is a part 1 of 2. • Working Under Pressure: Climate change is a popular topic and a hotly debated issue necessitating the ability both to keep abreast of a rapidly evolving subject and to seek out new perspectives. I constantly need to find new angles whilst ensuring that the resulting videos are the perfect blend of education, clarification and enjoyability. The challenge of partaking in such a stimulating and difficult medium while engaged in my final year of study and writing a dissertation is a testament to my ability to work well under pressure. • Communication And Personality: My communication and interpersonal skills have been greatly enhanced through my experience of video production and presentation: I have successfully developed and marketed an online personality which has generated a high ranking over all social platforms (YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat). • Duties: Responsible for sending monthly invoices, emailing stakeholders (staff, creative team members, finance department) episode briefing, arranging my bookings, participating in pre-production and editing.
