Production Safety Passport

I am interested in developing a career in the Film and TV industry as an Assistant Director. I am a highly motivated, positive person with excellent organisational and time-management skills. I am able to work flexibly and take a proactive approach to problem solving. I enjoy the challenge of working in a busy, creative environment, remaining calm in pressured situations. In addition to the design and research elements of my Architecture degree I also worked in different part time jobs throughout my studies developing a range of transferable and technical skills including the ability to work on various projects under pressure and to tight deadlines, working independently and as part of a team. I am technically confident and am experienced in using Microsoft Office, Apple software, Photoshop, Protools and other editing software. I am keen to use and develop these skills and willing to work hard to gain experience in this sector.
