I freelance in Radio and Audio production. My skills and knowledge lie in editing, producing, interviewing, studio operations. I can use a number of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, WordPress and Youtube.

The Economist Audio Edition

I began working on the project as a proofer and then trained as an editor which I now do regularly. Within editing I can edit up to 6 voices a day, at the end of the day, I am able to conduct delivery which involves tagging the audio files with metadata and zipping to send.

In regards to Production Manager Cover, I have been able to do this since May 2017. I run the day getting in first setting up the main production room for myself and the pronunciation manager. I will assign all the articles to the 6 voice-overs, making sure recording and editing are keeping to schedule. I will deal with any problems ranging from studio setup, the reading of an article, an edit or proofing problem, at the end of the day I will approve every article. I assist with delivery. Throughout the day I will look after 20 people and I recently PM’d The World in 2018 issue.

The Economist Audio Edition is produced by Somethin Else.

Ventnor Fringe 

Working for the Ventnor Fringe for 3 years, I get drawn into volunteering with the media team as a podcaster. I recorded a number of interviews with performers throughout the week to put on our daily podcast. As well as this, in 2017 and booked a number of the guests for the morning Fringe Review Show. When I have conducted the interviews and collected the Fringe Review show audio, will sometimes edit but this is mainly down to the Podcast Manager who collates this and uploads to the Fringe Review podcast and our daily podcast to the fringe’s Mixcloud and shares on all the social media sites throughout the festival.

The festival has now past its 8th year and this year ran the VIF: Ventnor International Festival alongside the fringe. For this, we created a one-off podcast for the day. I interviewed over half of the music acts on during the day and music from their performances. Miri the podcast manager then sat and did an amazing job in creating the one of the podcast that really captured the sound and vibe of the day. (You can listen to this via the link below).

The experience of working on the fringe is fun, fast and inspiring with getting to see a number of creatives in action this be theatre, music, art or comedy.
