Media Specialist from the UK in Marbella
by Chloe Collins-Cole
My name is Chloe Collins-Cole and I am 18 years old. From the age of 13 I have been interested in media. In the beginning I edited on iMovie and filmed on my iPhone 5C. Primarily working on short films of holidays and events attended by my family. This interest grew, and I taught myself other techniques including editing on Final Cut Pro and Audacity.
Once I completed my GCSE’s (9 gained) I knew I wanted to further my skills and chose to apply for a creative media course at The City of Bristol College. Following a successful interview, I was granted my unconditional place.
Presently, I am undertaking this diploma and have furthered my skills. Whilst studying I applied for a course with the BFI. I was selected from a pool of 600 applicants to gain my place. I have gained valuable experience from a number of masterclasses held by professionals in the industry and have worked on a documentary. Both my filming and editing skills have benefitted from this.
Whilst studying at The City of Bristol College, I was selected from my course to both present and assist in producing a piece for a BBC School Report about a game Aardman Studios were creating. I interviewed students as well as BBC staff for the production and went to BBC Bristol to help with the edit and to record additional voiceovers for the radio version of the production. I was also chosen to be interviewed about my experience and thoughts on the Aardman Studios game, live on BBC Breakfast. From this I developed my editing skills, presenting skills and have grown my confidence.
And now to the present. My course is coming to its end and I am considering my future. I would like to be given the opportunity to work in television gaining further experience and expertise. I believe I have a lot to offer and hope to be given the chance to fulfil my dream of working in the media industry.
I am currently looking for a summer media-related job in Marbella, where I will be staying with my family in the summer (July-August).
