- Multilingual and versatile shooting AP. Specialist factual, especially history, arts and politics are my best subjects, but I have been able to adapt to features, fact ent, current affairs and obs doc/docu soaps as well.
- Have an eye for a good story and can cast and approach a broad variety of contributors - from victims of Nazism, to expert historians and scientists, or ex-con biker tattoo artists - appropriately and sensitively. I am quick to grasp the requirements of a format and used to negotiating access to diverse institutions and locations such as the Paris Opéra or HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy's only aircraft carrier.
- Have a thorough understanding of the entire production cycle – from preliminary research, to shooting and post – and have shot sequences for broadcast and recces. I've set up and worked on shoots across the UK, Europe and as far abroad as the Americas for months at a time.
- Competent writer for scripts and development and I speak and write German to a native standard, as well as conversational French.
- Highly organised and can competently complete administrative tasks, such as data wrangling and logging, and have run the location production office during long shoots. Read Less
