To whom it may concern,
Everything in your job description sounds like me.People describe me as bubbly, persistent, organised, friendly, a problem solver, trustworthy and somebody to go to in order to get something finished.
If you do not have enough time to look at another paper cv, perhaps you have the chance to look at a quirky personality showreel: ,
I have my own YouTube channel: with over 3K subscribers. Here I uploaded gameplay videos, editing all the videos myself. (since studying and starting work I have not had enough time to continue this hobby)
I have worked in all areas of production, from editor to director. I have interned for Working Title Pictures, Saatchi & Saatchi and have done work for the UNHCR, the Romanian government, Mike Figgis and Will Self. My most recent work for crane has clients such as the Huffington Post, the Guardian and the New York Times.

I have produced every film I have directed (which are over a dozen) which has given me considerable organisational skills. As director and 1st AD, I have needed to create important relationships with clients, crew and cast. I know how to keep the energy up, solve problems and know how to talk to people of all walks of life. These have given me expertise in:
-sending e-mails to clients
- keeping track of receipts
-scheduling/ call sheets
-quick problem solving
-keeping moral up
Since graduating from the MET film school and Bournemouth university in my MA in filmmaking, I have not only taken the role as festival co-ordinator but also directed a music video for jazz musician Chris Read, started producing a short for David Abramsky as well as developing a script for a short which I'd like to develop for my first feature film. I love working with people, organising and thrive in a competitive environment. With my friendly attitude, ability to speak four languages and professional manner I believe I could make a valuable member of the team.
