    About me

    For longer than I can remember, I have loved film. Growing up, the cinema was a church for me; as a teenager I was always writing scripts, devouring cinema books and attending film clubs. I later took the academic route and studied languages at Cambridge but even there I threw myself into every film studies module, wrote my dissertation on interwar cinema and undertook projects with filmmaking society CineCam and student TV station TabTV.

    Having a feel for visuals I focused on production design where the work felt urgent and exciting. Since then I have worked on 12 projects including a feature and a web series, supporting myself by working in an arthouse cinema to keep abreast of new releases in a film-loving environment. In October 2016 I began a Master’s in Film, Television and Screen Media to deepen my understanding of the medium.

    Filmmaking is a natural fit for me. I am quick-thinking with a vivid imagination, I throw everything into planning and am adept at working to short deadlines. Thanks to my experience in scriptwriting, production design and other crew roles I have a proven understanding of the process from conception to completion and would thrive in any entry-level position.
