About Jess_TV01
Role / Occupation:
Floor Manager, Cinematographer
Dublin City
I am a hard working student and plan to work diligently in the next two years of my study. I have some experience in the media industry (read below) and will be on the look for work experience in that field hopefully over the duration of next summer. I am very organised and I think ahead, I am never late for deadline submissions and I put the effort in to delivering sufficient paperwork and assignments. I take my studies seriously and hope to pursue my line of study as a career after my degree is complete. I have experience in computing and marketing and studied two years of 'media and communications' which looked at the pre-production, production and post-production phases of filming and audio. I am currently studying 'Film & Broadcasting' in Dublin Institute of Technology and I am in my second year of the four-year progamme - DREAM DIARY, RECENT PUBLICATION.
