When you started the programme what genre of video media were you interested in and has, this shifted over the year?

I have always been interested in the more laid back, non-corporate action type of filming and creating and I think that will always be the type of thing that I want to and that I enjoy shooting, as well as aerial content from drones. 

What subject matter do you find yourself drawn to?

I love aerial cinematography and cinematic drone content, it has been something that I have had a great interest in for a long time, so this is the subject matter that I have the most interest in. 

Pick three words/phrases that describe your approach to the medium?

Cinematic / Attractive / Slow 

Why did you choose to study cinematography and content creation?

I have always had a passion for taking videos of almost everything from a young age, and when I realized when I was a bit older that I wanted to pursue video, I thought this would be the perfect way to kick off that career. 

What has been the most noteworthy shoot/project you have done this year?

I think my favourite has got to be the Summer Reel, this is something that I’ve worked hard on and displays some of the best drone shots that I have got this year. 

Who is your biggest videographic influence at the moment and how?/ why?

It would be Sam Kolder – he produces the most fantastic content that always makes me feel very passionate, all his videos have a meaningful storyline. Their flow is impressive, I was fortunate to meet and work with him last year, and I will always admire any work that he produces. 

What has been your biggest misconception about videography and content creation as a practice?

That would be time management and general order; you always have to be on top of your game and make sure that you get things done correctly and on time. 

What is the most valuable thing you have learnt on the course?

To never underestimate yourself and your ability, if you put your mind to the job, anything is possible. 

What advice would you give to anyone seriously considering applying for the course?

Believe in yourself. You can be an experienced videographer or someone who has never filmed before; the Orms CTSP environment and staff are always willing to help 24/7. That is what makes it unique. You will learn something new every day and by the end have come out with a lot more knowledge than you think.
