Experience

Freelance Creative, MTV UK – Viacom International, London, United Kingdom

Aug 2018 – Sept 2018

I created the official MTV UK Promo for ‘Refreshers week presented by Strongbow’. The official promo is to be aired on commercial television and various Viacom channels.Refreshers Week Presented by Strongbow sends eight twenty-somethings back to university where they can forget the stresses of being an adult and enjoy the fun and freedom of being a Fresher! Living together in a student house, the contestants will compete in a range of crazy Freshers-week inspired tasks presented to them by some very special guest judges... It's time to forget real-life and get back to University!

Experience

Freelance Creative Producer, Scripps Network – Travel Channel, London, United Kingdom

                                                                             2018 May – 2018 May

-        I created 3 x 30” promotional trails for Travel Channel South Africa featuring Road Trip Eats, Wheels, and Places, all which had a road trip theme. As these promos would be running the duration of the summer, I wanted to have a distinctive difference whilst still giving a connection to all three promos.

-        To attain this, I decided to unconventionally, create a light script, mixed with sync from the shows and chose music that one would not normally associate with a promo. It was vital to use the same VO artist for all three promos which would offer a subtle nudge to their connections.

-        I also created 1 x 60” Travel Channel South Africa and EMEA Brand Spot, which consisted of five programs, which would run over the summer period.

-        The idea was to highlight five unique shows that play on the travel channel.

 

Experience

Freelance Creative Producer, BBC Studios – CEMA/WE Team (Promos), London, United Kingdom

2018 Feb – 2018 April

-        I developed and created effective high-level promotional campaigns and trails based on marketing briefs, whilst keeping in the parameters of the budget and timeline I had for each project.

-        I worked proactively with the creative director to develop and maximize creative, devising creative solutions for key promotions and off-air materials.

-        In order to execute my given projects, I used my technical production and creative skills to deliver the most innovative and effective campaigns. Using various routes such as specially shooting scenes, animation, clip based material, use of strong visual imagery, motion/graphic design, audio design, music, sync and voice over.

-        In order to maximize my time and recourses, I constantly researched voice over artists picking the voice that I believed would deliver the best tone to encompass the project and drive the particular message home. To ensure this I attended audio sessions, working with Sound Designers and directing voice over artists.  

-        As well as negotiating with clients to amend ideas in line with their wishes, I would explain what was possible within the parameters to maintain expectations.

-        Above all, I consistently created high quality promos that reflected the channel’s brand values and marketing proposition, promoting the featured program. I created unique, distinctive, and outstanding ideas for on-air promotion and executed those ideas into promos.

-        Importantly, I developed and maintained strong working relationships with internal, external clients and partners.

 

Experience

Freelance Creative Producer, BBC Worldwide Central Team (Show Case), London, United Kingdom

2018 Jan – 2018 Feb

-        I was the Creative Producer for BBC Worldwide Showcase 2018 evening event, creating content targeting guests from Asia, LATAM, ANZ, UK, Press, BBC World, CEMA, Western Europe, North America, Content (Talent and Indies Partners), BBCW VIP (CEO, BBC Board and Guests) and Northern Europe.

-        During the evening, guests were moved through three different worlds via interconnecting walkways. Each world had different ambiences which reflected BBCs content in a rich and immersive way.

-        I created soundscapes for the rooms, the Serengeti 10min video that ran on a loop, and the 50th anniversary moon landing video which included PTC from Buzz Aldrin.

-        In order to achieve this, I attended meetings with the production company of Serengeti and BBC Stakeholders to view content that had not been seen by the public. I also attended theses meetings to request material in which I would use to create the content for the event. Seeing as my work would be giving the selected guest a first look at the broadcaster’s latest natural history program Serengeti I was intrusted with highly classified and expensive material.

-        We took our clients from around the globe on an immersive experience, reliving the anticipation and excitement of 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took mankind’s first steps on the lunar surface.

-        We accomplished this by projecting this film on giant screens that took the full length of the Liverpool arena at our BBC WW showcase event. This film included a special PTC from Buzz Aldrin and spectacular archive footage. Hydros simulated the rocket launch with an earth-trembling audio bed making the arena shake, creating a 4D experience. An actor recreated the moment the astronauts made it safely back to earth.

Key Achievements
