I have no experience within the film industry, however it's my ambition to work in this field. I did a degree in fine art, where I spent a lot to time experimenting with film and animation. It wasn't until the end of the course that I wished I had taken up film studies and production. I am a very creative and very self motivated person. I have taught myself a great deal of techniques to do with editing, lighting and camera work, yet I want to learn and discover a lot more by spending time and working with others who share this interest. I am enthusiastic and open minded and ready to get involved. I am just searching for chance to show what I am capable of. I am currently making a stop motion short. This has involved a lot of research. I have had to write a story, construct the sets, experiment with lighting, buy the equipment and software, design and create the characters, storyboard, compose shots. I love it, but would love to be doing it as part of a team.
I would like to have a position as a cameraman, storyboard or on the editing team. This is where I would be most useful in a film crew. Even if I don't get to actually be on the film crew, at least the chance of meeting experienced people who work in these areas and seeing them at work, would help me creatively and help me understand how the industry works. I just want to get stuck in and help in the production of a film, big or small.
I'm Carlo, 23 from UK. I gratuaded Art school last year and am currently working as an English teacher in Paris. I love film, music and art. I am always drawing and taking photographs. My ambition is to work in the film industry.
