Specialising in TV at university has meant I’ve often been the only one on my team who knows how to operate a camera. That, and the reason why you should ask your interviewee what they ate for breakfast.
In 2008 I worked as a broadcast journalist covering the Liverpool World Firefighters Games. I produced stories for a daily broadcast at the Liverpool Arena. I covered events including cycling, swimming and iron dog, where I interviewed Peter Purves of Crufts fame. I was also the script editor for the official commemorative DVD, which was distributed worldwide. The same year marked the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, which I covered as a news video package for Liverpool Life.
I’ve also turned my video skills to food, shooting short recipe videos for Healthy Food Guide as part of a strategy to grow its social media audience (it did, by around 480% per post).
For BMI Healthcare I led a project to produce video content, which I produced, shot, edited and made a package of graphics for. The videos utilised the expertise within regional healthcare teams to report on innovations, tell patient stories and produce symptom and treatment information videos with hospital consultants.
