Summer 2013 - Work Experience at Space-2 (Location Scouting Company) and a day Assisting at Pinewood Studios.
This summer has been one of the busiest, influential and exciting experiences so far. Throughout the summer I have been working at a location scouting company - Space-2. This involved a vast amount of research, searching for interesting and unique locations for advertisement, television, film and music videos. It involved travelling, photographing locations and placing the information into the archive system. We used this archive to respond to client briefs.
While at Space-2, I was introduced to the marketing director, Jeremy Pelzer. This lead to an extraordinary day assisting on a film set at Pinewood studios where Jeremy was the film stills photographer.
It was the most amazing experience of my life and I hope I get the opportunity to work with Jeremy and at Space-2 in the Summer of 2014. I learnt a lot from my experience at Pinewood Studios, from how the director communicates his ideas, to the relationship between the cast and the crew. Due to time constraints, three different scenes were being filmed at once. Jeremy would not only photograph the set but also the actors separately for the marketing of the film.
It was an incredible experience and I hope to have similar opportunities in the future.
