High-end TV Trainee Finder 2020
Production Safety Passport

From a background working in Hostile Environments and both training and operating worldwide. I started in the Film and Televison Industry working with Zion Security. Scotlands biggest provider of security services and logistics to film and television. After working on a few major productions, I gained a massive interest and passion for the work I was doing. As time passed I began becoming more involved, helping locations and ADs on set. This resulted in me starting some training with Bectu Vision, The National Film and Television School, Royal Conservatiore Scotland and becoming a ScreenSkills AD Trainee. I am continung my training whilst gaining experience on set. I am keen to put everything I have learned into practice and I am very excited to be beginning a career as an AD. 

I look to gain all the experience and skills necesary to work my way up the chain as an Assistant Director. Whilst doing so and gaining all the experience and skills along the way, I hope to be able to one day utilise everything I have learned and look to create a Feature/Pilot of my own.
