Making Creativity Work

I am enthusiastically seeking work in the Art Department for film. Over the past year I have worked variously as an Art Director on music promos and as an Art Department Assistant on large commercials. Most recently I have worked as an Assistant to the Designer for clients such as HSBC, Vodafone and Ladbrokes.

Having been awarded a place as a Creative Skillset Art Department Trainee for Film 2018-19, I am eager to find work on larger productions to gain a working knowledge of how all the different roles within the Art Department collaborate and contribute to creating the larger whole. 

My skills include petty cash buying, set dressing, props management, model prop making and research. I am eager to develop my craft skillsets in understanding and working with materials, construction techniques, woodwork, landscaping and greens. 

The Art Department is where I feel the most fulfilled, the most eager and creatively engaged, the most captivated by the medium of communication in order to present new ways of understanding.
