I am currently enrolled for my second year of HND TV at NESCOL (North East Scotland College). I achieved my first year (HNC) with distinction and I hope to do the same this year.
I love the HND TV at Nescol. I'm learning a lot and it's very practical with hands-on classes. My favourite aspects of filmmaking are screenwriting, directing, cinematography, and camera operating. We work in groups and help each other, which is a great way to learn and progress.
I am a secondary teacher (PGDE at Glasgow University in 2015, registered with the GTCS) and I am working part time so I can study filmmaking and get some experience doing so. Being a teacher means I also acquired a lot of transferable skills such as leadership, team work, organisation, time management, amongst others.
Last April, I filmed Deadfire's video for their single Pro[pain]. It was a good learning experience. in October, I produced, directed and edited DeadFire's new music video BMF and filmed and edited CoverFucker's Aberdrink. I want to make more music videos in the future.
My goals are to make short films (factual and scripted) and music videos.
