Personal statement

Film has been my passion ever since a young age, I take pride in developing a moving image/visual art that I can show to an audience. I am a very motivated and practical with the ability to learn new skills quickly. I have many years of experience and I am very confident in approaching equipment as well as new equipment. I am reliable and have good communication skills, with the ability to adapt my style to suit the needs of the team I’m working with. I have extremely well developed interpersonal skills, enabling me to work well as part of a team, but I am just as confident working under my own initiative. I work well under pressure and take pride in consistently meeting deadlines because I understand how time can be very delicate in the film industry.
