Our 2021 DocLabber, Thash headed to Rogan for her work placement
I was very excited to begin my placement at Rogan Productions. Their stellar storytelling and approach to tough subjects I found fascinating, but it made me slightly nervous for the placement. However, once I was there the team was very welcoming and helpful that I quickly felt like part of the family.
I’ve been working in their development team which means I’ve been researching new ideas for docs in a range of formats for lots of different broadcasters. I’ve greatly improved my writing skills as it was the first time I was writing pitch materials and finding different ways to work was a good learning curve. Researching exciting and varied topics meant I was always busy and it was nice to be in person in an office so I could brainstorm with my colleagues.
Working at such an exciting company like Rogan has been a dream come true and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. It has been great to be part of such an inspiring team and it has reaffirmed my drive to be part of the documentary industry. Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey!
