Key Skills

Booking Contributors and Talent - I have experience researching and casting
contributors as during my MA Television Production Degree, I have been a
Producer for a Disability Documentary and a Casting Producer for an
independent film review show, for both of these roles I was required to
research and cast contributors and talent for the shows.

Producing Documentaries - I have experience producing as during my MA
Television Production Degree I have produced my own documentary about
my experiences of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how just because you
have a disability, doesn't mean you have to let it get in your way of your
hopes and dreams. As part of this role, I thought of the initial idea, I chose
the crew for the show, I created the running order, obtained location
permissions, researched talent and contributors, help created the script and
co-edited the footage as well and also helped film the documentary as well.

Filming. - I have experience using the Canon C100, which was the principal
camera we used to film Beyond: Disabilities. As we only had access to a
small crew, there were some days where I also fulfilled the role as a camera
operator, this involved me setting up the cameras, booking the equipment
and film the scenes correctly, under the direction of the Director of

Key document creation and distribution - As part of the roles on the shows I
am involved with, one of the tasks is to risk assess locations for filming.
