buts that not to say it was easy. Its been an enjoyable
but demanding 8 months having to produce four live
shows, shooting a documentary, as well as working
on my final year project, all to strict deadlines. I feel
I have learnt a great deal, using new equipment,
experimenting with different production roles and
leading projects. Having a wide knowledge of all areas
of production is something that I have always felt is
important. As I approach the end of my studies and my university
life, I was expecting to feel like many do; not wanting
to leave university to enter the world of work. However
I really am looking forward to graduating this year; I
can’t wait to finally get involved. Much of my spare time
has been spent on networking and attempting to gain
industry experience, which helped me find my first paid
work in television.
For the last eight months alongside my studies, I have
been working as a freelance logger for IMG Media’s
European Tour Productions golf team. The work
involves travelling to European Golf Tour events with the
production team and logging shot times with a camera
operator - timings are essential for the producers when
compiling a programme. Logging live satellite feeds
from golf events is another element of the work. It’s a
fun and rewarding post that I see as the perfect first
step on the ladder in the TV industry.
In regards to the future, I hope to remain within sports
television, but to enter into the realm of producing. My
ultimate ambition is to work within tennis or Formula 1
coverage. It’s a long tough road but I am excited with
the possible career prospects ahead of me.
