POSITIONING STATEMENT –
I am in my penultimate year of a degree in Filmmaking and Creative Media. I want to pursue a career in editing and/or directing at small film production company that focuses on high quality.
My specific experience and skills includes editing with software such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid, Da Vinci Resolve. Additionally, I have experience in directing different genres like documentary, short film and drama and promotional videos. This has made me gain directing skills in different areas.
Last year, I directed, edited and co-shot a promo for the Bristol Burlesque Festival, who approached me again to reprise my role for the next edition. Furthermore, they offered me a sponsorship, which proves a sense of professionalism in my work. Moreover, during the making of this promo, I networked with the performers of this festival. This resulted into shooting a personal promo for one of the dancers, which was widely shared on social media. This sparked the interest of other companies such as Dr Sketchy’s, who have approached me to shoot a promo for them.
I have also volunteered at a Encounters Short Film Festival, in order to gain experience through professional filmmakers that were present, and expand my network in the industry.
This experience in filmmaking has led me to become an independent and versatile employee.
