Biography

I have had experience within the Media industry, and so would like to continue to work in Media, I bring enthusiasm to each role I hold and encourage those I work with to work autonomously, along side that I also strive to achieve a great level of success with everything I work on, to do this I feel I must be able to keep well to a schedule, work well in a team and optimistic about my work. I feel I have done well in each role  I have taken and would thoroughly enjoy working as a Sound Editor or Cinematographer although I am also well trained in other areas, such as being a camerawoman, researching and marketing.

Sound Editor

Sound Editor for "The Fault in Our Stars"  - a movie adaptation of the book written by John Green. I was in charge of the timing and volumes of the tracks played in the film, this included having to lower the volume during dialogue, as well as making the tracks play at the set times. I also had to synchronize the sound to the picture and wild and dialogue tracks, library material and foley sounds to ensure that the sound effects were realistic but loud enough to be heard. As well as this I had to pay attention to detail and be very computer literate.

Cinematographer

Showtime Networks

Cinematographer for "Dexter" - a crime based drama produced by Showtime Networks. I had to manage the crew and equipment being used for shooting, decide how to bring the script to life by devising a shot list with the director and also design the lighting in a way that worked with each scene. My role as a cinematographer also involved organizing and spending the budget appropriately, by choosing high quality crew and equipment, check safety measures, check parameters and reset for next take and take care of any ongoing production issues.
