Nick Wood: Freelance Videographer / Runner / Production Assistant.
Posted on April 29, 2014 by Ihtezaz
I am a freelance videographer and a member of the SharpFutures Talent Pool. I graduated from studying Film and TV Production at Manchester’s Futureworks in 2013.
I became involved with the SharpFutures team in June 2013 after volunteering at Event #005, since then, I have been involved in many key events such as LEANCONF, Creative Digital Experience Days & Digital Teapot 14.
Being a part of the Talent Pool means that I am recommended to The Sharp Project tenants ABF Pictures and Stone Cross Films when they need additional skills. I have been offered paid work on set as a Runner, and as a Production Assistant, providing me practical experience and a good insight into larger scale productions, as well as expanding my contacts network.
As part of the Talent Pool, I was also lucky enough to work as part of the SharpFutures Team on a Social Media Booster Campaign for an event launching the new Peugeot 308 – a great experience further expanding my photography and social media skills.
As a Freelancer, I am currently looking at an idea to develop a business that utilises video production as a way of advertising for brands and companies via social media.
I am also looking to develop a portfolio career with a larger scale production company where I can develop my knowledge and skills in a wider environment.
I am looking to find a junior researcher role in the creative digital sector so I can develop a sustainable career, and am hopeful that my experience with SharpFutures Talent Pool will help me achieve this.
You can see some of my work here that I have obtained during and since my studies along with some personal projects. My work has been heavily based within the snow sports industry and I am looking to build upon this whilst also expanding my portfolio.
