Foddy Savva

London, United Kingdom

Actor, Model, Musician, Film & Stage Crew, Photographer, Stylist

Before joining University I had 16 years experience as a member of a front line service for Tower Hamlets council and developed some excellent communication skills. I have enrolled on a Film and Video BA Hons degree at the University of East London and I am currently in my final year. I am looking to gain as much experience as possible and would like to work in production, writer/Director. I have various hobbies such as boxing, swimming, football, martial arts and I also enjoy reading, writing, black and white photography, film and music. I am a very adaptable individual and believe in giving my full attention to the task at hand. I have tons of drive, energy and ambition and can change my style, (hair or beard). I am always open to suggestions. (smoking on screen) I am British by birth and my ethnic origin is Greek Cypriot. I am fluent in Greek and as I have a tanned complexion I am able to pass for Indian, Middle Eastern or European. I'm based in London and prepared to travel.

I am currently part of the Corporate Marketing Events team for a London university, which is part of a very demanding directorate. My experience in Office Management, Events and various other areas is quite broad. My main priority at present is to oversee the planning and operation of the graduation ceremonies for approximately 4000 students. Most recently I was involved in the planning and delivery of the Honorary Doctorate Award to David Bailey (please see the attached links) as well as the 2014 UEL Sports Awards and the marketing behind UEL's campaign in the run up to Graduate Fashion Week at the Truman Brewery.
