  M  *+ At the Phoenix Square I worked as Production Assistant in the TV
and Film Studio based in the building. I worked with a variety of clients such as schools for educational
purposes and I have worked with big companies for commercial advertisements and productions. I looked
after the studio making sure the equipment was fully functioning and that the studio was fully rigged and set
up for the bookings. As Front of House I learnt to use my initiative to be organised and punctual l as I am
given a timetable of the entire day to keep the Cinema running on time for each showing and tend to each
customer͛s needs. As well as looking after the Cinema, professionals hire out the executive suites in the
building and these events also have to be taken care of. Keeping up to date with the latest films and what is
events are happening in the Phoenix Square is essential.

    I was handed a second opportunity to go to the BBC training centre to be trained up by
professionals in the industry but this time a documentary and a two minute personal piece had to be
completed and reviewed by executive producers. I was assigned the role of Director in which I overlooked
both the projects deciding on the overall creative control in every aspect of the video pieces. I used
leadership and group management skills gained from my previous experience at the BBC.

    In partnership with De Montfort University, I was handed the opportunity to be
trained up by the BBC professionals about the roles that co-operatively run a Television Studio and also by
the end of the week have a televised programmed to be transmitted live. I took the role of Director in my
group and from the experience I learnt how to have stamina and self discipline to stick to the deadline and to
motivate my group. Leadership and management skills were gained as well as learning valuable advice off
professionals in the industry.

Both these roles involve representing the student body for my faculty and degree. This involves attending
regular meetings with higher members of the university to discuss issues in the university and finding the
solutions to them. Being the faculty representative involved having some initiative to go around and ask
students from all courses if any issues needed solving or anything new that needed to be added to their
courses. Being the representative of my degree was similar but things would be discussed and solved in the
lecture theatre with everyone͛s opinions.

The qualities I took in from these roles were loyalty, enthusiasm, having a positive attitude, being logical and


sensible in solving problems, having an approachable appearance and personality, researching and using a
variety of media applications to communicate with the students of De Montfort University.
