In my time as a filmmaker for Access Dorset, I worked on a variety of web video projects for Access Dorset as well as other voluntary sector organisations and large institutions including the NHS and Department for Work & Pensions. These films were often about empowering marginalised groups and giving people a voice. I have really enjoyed this work.
As a freelance filmmaker I have worked for a company that ran a live European Poker Tour. I was responsible for live streaming tournaments & making videos that captured the days events for sharing on social media and promoting the tour. This developed into live streaming and filming promotional films for Grosvenor Casinos UK poker tour and live streaming tournaments for France’s larges online poker company, Winamax. This work has taken me all over Europe, with much work being done in Dublin.
As a freelance technician & consultant I’ve worked on some large projects, including developing a new business that provides technical theatre services and creative arts projects to schools in the Hampshire area. I was also a project manager on some large theatrical installations and new builds. I was responsible for producing and managing the cost schedule for a new build theatre at Southampton City College as well as project managing part of the installation.
As a Dept Manager for Safeway I developed a range of skills and experience including staff and performance management, planning and sales forecasting, stock control and many others. I feel this period of employment helped develop a wide range of skills, responsibilities and qualifications applicable to many forms of employment.
