I am motivated to work within the Christian/Catholic/Not for profit sector.
I am a content creator based in Geelong. I have a broad range of skills, most notably my video production. I am up to date with current skills and research from my recent study.
I have extensive experience in Christian and not for profit organisations:
While the last two roles are not entirely relevant to content creation, they significantly contributed to my formation and development in important transferable skills. In the realm of content creation:
My qualifications are: Diploma of Screen and Media, and am currently studying a Bachelor of Communications (Digital Media) at Deakin University. I have also completed a handful of TAFE courses in the area of music, sound production etc.
I worked with Chris Piper to develop instructional videos for his online course. He wanted a video for each of his 5 modules and one overview video.
I suggested we also film a promotional video for social media to help advertise his course. This is that video. As you may notice, I optimized it for social media by using a square aspect ratio and including captions. I helped him develop a succinct script and kept it within 30 seconds.
In my work at OneHope Baptist Church, I produced videos for the children’s ministry for the duration of the lockdown. I worked together with the OneHope Kids leaders and under the guidance of my supervisor.
This was a good challenge, as children’s content was not an area I had much experience in. Over the last couple of years of lockdown, I have significantly extended my skills in the area of children’s content, learning to experiment with fun graphics and special effects (we even bought a green screen and used it for an entire season!). Standard editing conventions did not apply for this project! We all had the opportunity to be a little creative and spontaneous, from the kids leaders with their scripts, to myself in the editing room!
You’ll notice in this episode the flag at 00:51. It was actually a creative solution I came up with to solve the problem of Sally’s arm extending beyond the green screen. It turned out to be a great addition to the Space Theme!
