My name is Suzanne Pearson, I'm a student at the University of York studying a Bsc in Film and Television Production with aspirations of working within the film and television industry.

I have worked for Innsight Television and MeCETES camera operating for live gigs and events. I have worked as a runner for the BBC's 'The Big Questions' under the company Mentorn Media Scotland.

I am also a freelance camera operator working on promotional videos, having worked for NESSE, an environmental company and Guided Solutions, an International Healthcare Recruitment Agency.

I have gained work experience with companies such as BBC Radio York and Air Television UK who produce programmes such as Helicopter ER.

Other work includes working as an Assistant Director for Zhang + Knight's music video 'Notion' by Ato X Eden and as Assistant Director and Producer for 'Birdwatching' a commissioned short film for Exeter Phoenix Digital. I have also won an RTS Craft Award for Production Design and a Short Feature Nomination at the RTS Student Yorkshire Awards for my short film Nelly & Noah.
