I am a Multi-skilled Studio Operator in live television based in Bristol. I currently work on the BBC Points West regional news programme doing camera, audio, lighting and file ingest work. Previously, I worked at shopping channel Ideal World doing much the same for almost 2 years. Cumulatively, I now have over 2600 hours of live television work under my belt.
Now, however, I want to move into camera work on dramas and would thus like to be be considered for Camera Trainee roles and subsequently Camera Assistant. Whilst at the University of York, I worked on a number of short films as camera operator and AC, at Ideal World I shot a number of product promo videos, and in February 2017 I shadowed the camera department working on Poldark III. So, I am not completely new to the field but want some tangible, paid experience so that I can move my career in this new direction.
My contract with BBC Points West finishes at the end of March and I will be available for work after that.
