‘After finishing my course and spending a short time back in my home country of the US, I relocated to Glasgow to be with my partner. Due to various circumstances, I found production work wasn’t for me, so I returned to the field of human resources with mobile provider Three, and have recently moved into an analyst role. Even so, I use a lot of what I learned in (H)FTV, in terms of interpersonal relations, project planning, and, on a practical level, some new media skills in the process of managing our department’s intranet site.
I’m still very interested in returning to media, likely as an academic, as part of my long-term plans, and keep my editing and industry skills sharp!’
‘I did my MA work experience at North One TV working on The Gadget Show (Channel 5). After finishing that I was offered a 3 month contract with North One as a Researcher. All in all I was at North One TV for around 14 months.
Since leaving North One I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a number of prime time shows including three series of Superscrimpers (Remarkable TV, Channel 4), Snog Marry Avoid (Remarkable TV, BBC3), Junior Paramedics (BBC North, BBC3) and The House that £100k Built (Remarkable TV, BBC2).’
