I’m currently studying Digital Filmmaking at the University of Bradford, in 2014 I graduated my Undergraduate Degree in BA (Hons) Media Studies with Television making this my fifth and final year in education.
I do really enjoy what I have learnt and the opportunities that I have been given throughout have been brilliant. Working alongside the University, BBC Yorkshire and Children in Need over the last five years I have learnt a lot from so many different people.
Alongside the opportunities I have been given, the University of Bradford has an amazing Outside Broadcasting truck which has grown better and stronger since I began at the university. Using it for pretty much all of the projects I have been involved in.
I am so grateful for being given the chances and experience I have.
In September 2014 I began my Master’s degree, I took this course part-time over two years so I was able to work and study at the same time.
My other half also studies Television Production so I am also able to get involved with productions they have running, for example Gig In A Gallery.
We were then given the opportunity to work alongside BBC Yorkshire to help film and produce the Yorkshire Elections Debate.
In June 2015 BBC were involved in a production called BBC music day. Setting up five camera all around Bradford’s Centenary Square, we again used the Outside Broadcasting Truck provided by the University of Bradford.
Another amazing opportunity I had was helping manage the team, alongside the BBC, for BBC Children in Need 2014. Set inside Bradford City hall we had events taking place in 4 different rooms throughout the hall, music, dancers, choirs and of course Pudsey the Bear.
Last week I was involved in filming a yearly sporting event at our university, Varsity. Varsity is an event that 33 games are held in different sports between Bradford University and Huddersfield University.
I was given the opportunity to floor manager whilst we filmed two different rugby games and the closing ceremony.
Today I was involved in helping with a project called Exit Stage Left. I was a runner, caterer and an extra on stage.
I do love filmmaking and being involved in these brilliant events. I’m looking forward to adding more productions to my list.
