Foddy Savva

London, United Kingdom

Model, Actor, 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.
