I have had a few really busy weeks over the holidays, and i have fell a little bit behind with my Blogging. As well as working on my drawing Skills, Set Model and Prop Research, I have also taken part in some really exciting work experience.
I was contacted over the holidays by John Noble, (entertainment design crafts workshop Technician and Film maker) to tell me about some Work experience he found. He mentioned it was for a company LC Props and suggested i sent them an email if i was interested.
I was really excited to hear about this opportunity, and I searched for the companies website straight away. It turned out to be really interesting. The design and make props and costume props for TV, Film and Theatre. they had worked on 'Pricella Queen of the desert' in London, 'The Lion King' 'Shrek The Musical' and 'The Little Mermaid' on Broadway.
Keane to gain some work experience I emailed them. They got straight back to me and asked what days I was available. i gave them my Availability, and agreed to work with them.
I was really excited and looking forward to it. However i was also feeling slightly nervous, as this was the first work experience I had in the Entertainment industry, and also as i had only myself been studying Entertainment Design Crafts for four Month. But i Went in Feeling Confident I could do it.
It was a really friendly environment, and Leigh (Owner of LC Props) was a really nice guy to work with. He talked me thought everything i needed to know, and made sure I understood what he wanted me to do. There was also some past Ents students there, and it was really nice to hear about what they had been doing and the experience they have gained.
I did Four days on the Work experience and can clearly say I really enjoyed it! I learned a lot of things about different materials and Techniques, and made me even more Determined to get into the Industry.
