An introductory article written by our new Assistant Producer, Nolan Benson
Hi! I’m Nolan, the new Assistant Producer at The Media Group. Hmm, that feels really good to say.
Today marks the end of my first proper week here at TMG, and what a week it has been! I’ve met the whole team who have all made me feel very welcome. It also marks about a year since I finished university. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a MA in Documentary Journalism after completing a BA in Broadcast Journalism at the same uni. And what a crazy year that’s been!
In the last year I have been freelancing as an editor/cameraman/journalist but my main aim has always been to get my foot in the door of a company that really excites me. I honestly never thought that I would be able to bag such a fantastic job as soon as I have. I’ve always wanted to flex my creativity over the whole production process, so taking on this role really is a dream come true.
It’s been a really tough year but it’s also been filled with some very important lessons. Finding your feet in the creative industries can be pretty tricky but between the madness and uncertainty I’ve just kept reminding myself that everything will be okay if I just kept putting myself out there. It just goes to show that hard work and perseverance really does pay off.
Some key things to remember when looking for your dream job is to keep putting yourself out there, keep applying, keep asking yourself what you want to be and who you want to be and keep the faith! The rest will all come together.
I’m really keen to get stuck into all the exciting projects on the horizon at TMG and have already hit the ground running. I’ve already helped to create some great content for the new FA National Futsal Series but I am keen to create loads more content with all the different clients that we work with.
Anyway, that’s enough about me! I am excited to see where this journey with TMG will take me and if you are reading this and want to jump in for the ride then please don’t hesitate to drop me a line! firstname.lastname@example.org
