I am currently a student at Oxford University, completing a Master’s degree in Creative Writing, and I would like to gain experience in film-making on a larger scale than what I have so far experienced in student film-making. Working with the Oxford Broadcasting Association, I wrote most of the script for a 75-minute student feature film. I also directed the film and found the entire process challenging but invigorating. The production budget for our feature film, Saving Turtles, was £400 so I quickly learnt about finding practical solutions for problems to do with location and props. A small budget also meant that I had to carry out a lot of the administrative tasks, including organising the actors’ schedules, finding locations, script supervising, applying for funding and looking for 8 free of charge acting tortoises. This film thus gave me experience in managing administrative problems as well as directorial ones. In turn this has given me insight into what a person working in production can best do to serve the director’s purposes as I had to party fulfil both those roles. I am be eager to learn how some of these small-scale film processes I have learnt can be applied to professional films. Making a student feature film was tough work and I have been exposed to the tedious tasks of film-making. At the same time, I am passionate about the creative process and would look forward to helping out in any way I can at the varying stages of development, production, or post-production. Film is a wonderful medium that can change and morph in completely unpredictable ways at each step of its making, rendering each stage crucial but also fascinating to be a part of.
