I am writing to apply for a position with your company. Thank you in advance for looking at my application.
Film and video production has always interested me. In 1999, I attended Vancouver Film School to study the technical aspects of filmmaking. Throughout this intensive schooling I learned all aspects of Film and Video production. From Camera to Lighting and Sound, I received a well rounded education with a full understanding of the production process.
In 2003 I worked as a Segment Producer at MTV Canada in Vancouver. The show produced was a daily one hour in studio program which aired daily on MTV Canada. In this job I learned a great deal about working within a team and to succeed within the stress of daily broadcast deadlines. As well as producing in studio interviews, shooting on location spots, and editing each segment produced.
In 2004, utilizing my experience gained from MTV I started a multi-media company. At Mediascape North I provided clients with all phases of production from concept to delivery. Through this experience I was in control of every detail of production. This not only gave me a complete understanding and skill set in shooting and editing on all video and computer formats, but it also taught me the day to day operations of a business.
Through a unique opportunity, in 2005 I moved to Japan on business. I produced, shot, and edited promotional, educational, and music videos. Working in another culture and language taught me many invaluable skills in communication and differences in working environments.
After returning from Japan, I worked as a freelance Videographer for Mayrs & Brandstatter casting at North Shore studios in North Vancouver. There, I worked hand in hand with feature film and television Producers and Directors from major film studios. Through this workplace, I have gained first hand experience of working with some of the most successful creative people in the industry.
Currently I work as a New Media Producer for Point Streak Media, a digital agency based in Vancouver, Canada. There we work closely with Video Productions in the Resource sector of business. I produce and edit the videos for the company.
I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how my experience and skills can be put to use in this job. I have included my resume, and a link to view demo reel material with this document. If you would like to see a dvd of my demo reel, please contact me. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear back from you soon.
