BBC Production Apprenticeship 2017/18
Production Runner - The One Show
At The One Show, I have experience in two aspects of the production, Topical and Studio. On the topical team, I assisted in preparing kit for shoots, working with Canon C300, Sony PMW300, Sony PMW500, Canon XF305, Canon 7D and GoPro's. I am able to rig and de-rig these cameras along with Sachtler, Miller and Manfrotto tripods. I was able to go out on shoots and shoot with the cameras.
On the Studio side, I have the opportunity to interact with the guests on The One Show, traveling them to the green room and catering for them. I also assist with logistics on the piazza such as external crew for events.
Intern - BBC Films
At BBC Films, I interned under Rose Garnett, Director of BBC Films. I had the opportunity to read and analyse submitted scripts from their writers list. I then would write a report o each and work with the Development Executive to discuss them. I also created models for Talent event plans, sourced media for the film slate and interacted with any guests that would come through the office.
Production Runner - EastEnders
At EastEnders, I was both a distribution runner and production runner. At first, I assisted with providing food and drink for the cast and crew whilst shooting, stocking the studios and cast areas, travelling cast to ADR recordings, distributing call sheets and travel orders and other various jobs. I then moved onto production running where I undertook responsibilities associated with floor running. I cued cast on set, distributed call sheets to crew, travelled make-up artists on set, catered for cast on set and travelled cast to and from set. I also assisted the 3rd Assistant Director in handling extras and had the opportunity to direct extras in a few scenes of the program.
Intern - BBC Three
At BBC Three I worked in the research and development team where I learned how to compile research on potential talent for BBC Three shows. I had regular meetings with other researchers and Development Assistants to construct ideas for future shows and formats.
