I started working in the Lab as a Student Media Production Assistant before graduating from my degree. In this role I supported the production of video material for projects and events going on in the Lab. 12 months later, I was promoted to Graduate Project Activator (Media Producer). Here I am the first point of contact for all media content that needs to be produced, mentor and supervise Student Activators & students on work placement focused on filmmaking.
During this work experience, I was a Volunteer Video Editor, Teaching Assistant and Coordinator. For this programme, I was working in a small team and my tasks were to log and edit old film footage into a documentary format for presenting in our workshops. Within these workshops, I worked both independently and on other occasions with my colleagues for our presentations covering Social Media Activism. I also worked as a teaching assistant and my responsibilities for this role were to help people of a range of backgrounds, briefs and abilities through group activities inside and outside of the classroom.
2013 – Present
I am Dyslexic:
Documentary: I have worked on a few pieces of independent work, whether it’s with another videographer/s or solo. A recent project I have been working on is ‘I am Dyslexic: Documentary’ with Thom Davies.
Coventry Life Festival:
In October 2017, I worked closely with another freelance photographer and organisers from Coventry City Council to produce 2 videos about Coventry Life Festival’s event. As part of Coventry becoming an Age-Friendly City, the city hosted a 2-day event at Fargo Village to welcome the first festival of its kind to the city, which was supported by The European Commission EIT Health programme. For the event, I was hired to capture the first day of the event where every family in Coventry was invited to learn about the art of growing old.
One Cov 2017:
One Cov 2017 was an event hosted at Coventry Transport Museum that invited diverse communities from across the city to come together to discuss issues and ideas that are important to everyone that I’d helped to capture interviews and activities that took place in the day. This event was held in October 2017.
I’m currently acting as a sponsor and volunteer for the TEDx event, which is due to take place in Coventry, June 2018. My role within this project is to act as one of the Lead Videographers, and coordinate the pre-production, production and post-production of the event’s online videos that will be published on YouTube after the event. I have worked on the marketing campaign videos in the lead up to the event.
