When it came to being accommodated to a work placement with companies associated to the Festival, I was over the moon to be selected to be working with Dreamscope TV in filming the Festival's progress from Publicity night to the grand opening of the 24/7 Theatre Festival. Working alongside Darren throughout the process, my skills in camera work have helped me understand how to plan a scene from different angle, sorting the light balance so the footage doesn't appear too blurred or too bright for editing. Secondly I learned from Darren and the Dreamscope team was the different equipment used for each project and how to set them up properly and make sure that everything was clear and working properly.
My experience with the 24:7 Team, Dreamscope and my fellow team members, I have a deeper understanding of the Manchester Theatre scene and its growing development as well my new skills that I never knew I had or had developed through my experiences.
Since the Festival I have used my new and developed skills to create and develop new productions both stage and film. I have begun production on directing my first short film, 5 Minutes Alone alongside Sic Infit Productions, an independent film company.
