I have a year’s experience in the field of creative project management and quality control in animated explainers and how-to videos.
I have been interested in the field of art and video production for a long time now. During my school days, I used to participate in art competitions and have won numerous prizes.
To learn more about the field of audiovisual communication, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Mass communication from Amrita Vishwa Vidya Peetham, Coimbatore.
To further understand the scope of visual communication, I did PG Diploma in Broadcast Journalism from the Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media, Bangalore, where I directed, produced & edited news features and reports for IIJNM’s Online News Bulletin. My specialization in ‘Television Documentary’ also allowed me to interact with people from various walks of life and bring their stories to life on-screen.
Later, I had a short stint as a content editor at The New Indian Express, Chennai, and as a social media manager & online content editor at FWD Magazine, Kochi.
To rekindle my love for arts and crafts, I took up pencil sketching classes, when I moved to Bangalore and later became a freelance artist and teacher. I used to take workshops and art classes on the ‘basics of pencil sketching’.
My editing skills were limited to the news story edits, so to learn more about video editing, I interned with NJM Productions in Bangalore and assisted the creative director by providing content cuts and multi-cam edits for docu-wedding videos. I learned more about the do’s and don’ts of video editing from my colleagues there, and this gave me the confidence to apply for guch’s ‘Quality Controller’ post as I had an eye for details.
But to fit into the role perfectly, I read up Netflix’s QC guidelines and came up with a guideline for the in-house video quality checks at guch. My impeccable attention to detail, time management, accountability, and assertiveness, opened the path of project management for me at guch.
Having had a couple of good creative projects under my belt, I can easily communicate with people and co-ordinate the processes involved in a creative project. I can manage multiple creative projects at the same time while making sure that the output delivered is within the proposed timeline and of great quality.
It is my ambition to be a part of an established company, where processes and workflow are already mature. As someone, who had set policies and processes for a smaller team, I would like to take up the challenge of following policies and processes of an established company and polish my skills of leadership, time management, creativity, accountability, and assertiveness further, to create and deliver quality creative projects.
