I am an artistically inclined individual and on completion of my special effects In TV and film course in June 2017 my key objective is to apply my skills and knowledge I have gained in special effects and art. I am a self-motivated, conscientious and enthusiastic person. Flexibility and support come as second nature coupled with an ability to communicate effectively, particularly under pressurized situations. I believe these inter-personal and communication skills are vital in a dynamic work place environment. I have an excellent track record in achieving challenging targets and deadlines, both as an individual and as an effective member of a wider team.
Through my time in collage, university and in industry I have been instrumental in raising standards of achievement, through whole class teaching and smaller intervention groups. I enjoy creating a stimulating working environment and use problem solving and skills to get the best out of every individual I teach. I have also been taught on short courses at the university of Bolton by some of the current leading artist such as "Neil Gorton".
KEY SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES:
• Self-confidence and an ability to take the initiative, often in situations without precedence, (including public speaking/planning). • Delivering challenging targets/deadlines set by production executives • Delivering competent work, often within short timescales. • Working and communicating with fellow work colleagues and team members to create and develop • Being open-minded and creative - capability to interpret clients' requirements, (from oral or written briefs) and carrying out requested performances. • Being an accomplished problem solver and communicator, whilst working quickly but still effectively.
