Media Production: Film & Television BA (Hons)
'After finishing with a First Class Honours in Film & TV Production, I quickly managed to secure work experience on a television drama, using the contacts I had made at York St John to get the first foot in the door. Starting out as a trainee to three years later I would now consider myself a professional Clapper Loader. I work within camera departments ranging from television dramas to high end feature films, for example, Wonder Woman, Justice League and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword.'
