Following a successful work placement with UNILAD, Lewis Roberts was offered a position as junior video editor with the internet media company.
Lewis’ day-to-day projects include editing long and short-form content for the UNILAD Adventure page, but he’s also been getting involved behind the camera after being selected as a camera and production assistant out on location to create two pieces of original content for the UNILAD series ‘Roam For The Gram’ and ‘24 Hours in Liverpool.’
Lewis said: “The BTEC Level 3 film and TV course helped me to identify that editing and camera operating was the area that I wanted to pursue a career in. Through the units and assignments I was able to the learn skills to help me achieve this. It also gave me confidence in my own ability and a professional showreel, which were both invaluable to securing a job.
“Learning how to use editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects has helped me massively in my role as junior video editor to professionally edit videos, arrange filming materials, and work to strict deadlines.”
The breadth of the course enabled Lewis to experience a variety of aspects of the creative media industry. He also enjoyed a month-long placement with British Film Institute Academy.
Lewis added: “One of the best things about my course and studying at Trafford College was being able to work alongside like-minded people who shared the same passion and career goals as myself. I also loved learning about the media industry in-depth and enjoying areas I would never have thought I would have liked, or had the chance to learn about.”
