The Start

In Edinburgh, Scotland I worked as the Student Requirement and Marketing Administrator for Heriot-Watt University. Part of my job requirement was thinking up new ways to showcase the Postgraduate Department for the School of Mathematics and Computer Science [MAC].

Producing  a minimum of 3 videos on a tight budget and deadline took some planning. Especially given that there were three  departments in the University:  Computer Science, Mathematics and Actuarial Science. Each department wanted to promote their field of study to postgraduate students, and each department required a different level of involvement.


My duties included but were not limited to:

  • Writing and editing scripts
  • Researching and hiring a videographer
  • Budgeting and funding
  • Location scouting
  • Contacting available students to appear in the videos
  • Negotiating with the different departments to have a cohesive image
  • Arranging meetings, date and times for filming dates
  • Over seeing filming production
  • Making decisions on final cuts and edits of the film
