I grew up in France, near the borders of Germany and Luxembourg. I always wanted to get into Film & TV so worked hard to initiate a move to the UK. I first got into Warwick University and then Cambridge, studying a BA and an MA in Film/Media Studies.
My first job was at News Corp working in the Operations department of their video distribution arm (Unruly), as an Account Manager. Although I didn’t see myself continuing in that role, I did gain insight into how ad campaigns and trailers, promos and so on are run across the web and part of larger promotions.
I then worked in post production house for a year as a junior editor, working on documentary TV shows, creating endboards, clocks, re-cutting material and finishing – a bit of everything. The opportunity to join Viacom then came along and I couldn’t say no! In my daily duties, I spend my time helping the creative producers put together their ideas, coordinating with production and cutting together my own promos.
Longer term, I would love to develop my directing skills and perhaps move into TV/original content for Netflix, Amazon, etc. I used to really want to work in indie film however it’s a very tough landscape, and the way the world is moving now points towards streaming.
