New job as Camera Trainee
It’s been a while since my last post and so I have a few things to update you on!
- My second short film Aerona is now complete and I’m now researching possible film festival entries.
- As well as working at Films@59, I also recently did some daily running during casting for Revenge of the Egghead and The Great British Bake Off. These were both fantastic experiences and I thoroughly enjoyed working with potential contributors and contestants for these great TV shows.
- I’ve now completed my one year contract at Films@59, which was bitter sweet. It’s been a brilliant year and the best possible start in the industry I could’ve asked for. I was lucky enough to work with lots of interesting people and I learnt a lot while on the job.
The biggest news of all is that I’ve just started a new job as Camera Trainee on The Mimic, a comedy TV series by Running Bare Productions. I’m working on the second series, the first series broadcast on Channel 4 last year and is available on 4OD (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-mimic/4od ) In preparation for this role, I did some training in the kit hire department of Films@59 and have been researching on line about camera equipment and the role of the Camera Trainee. This role involves driving the camera truck, assisting with camera kit set up and maintenance, and generally being available to help the camera crew whenever needed. I’ve stocked up on waterproofs, work boots and even a deer hunter hat so at least I’ll look the part!
