Floor runner and Assistant Director Film Trainee from the North East.

Seeking trainee / runner positions in TV and Film.

 Since working on professional sets such as ITV'S 'Victoria' I have learnt so much about the film industry and once I was on this production I knew I didn't want to do anything else. I have always wanted to be part of a film 'team' and my experience so far has given me the drive and entry level skills I know I need to progress into entry level roles in the industry. I now want to use my current knowledge and skills to develop a good skillset that will support me in progressing into the Film industry.

I am a passionate, dedicated individual with a very strong work ethic. I strive to work very efficiently and collaboratively, and make sure I complete any job given thoroughly and extremely well.
