2021 Grierson DocLab trainee, Sameen headed to Blast! Films for her placement. Read about how she got on...
I was so excited to begin my placement with Blast! Films. I'm a big fan of their programmes and was very eager to see what a Production Secretary role involves and how they work alongside a Production Manager. The team was very welcoming and helpful throughout my placement.
I was lucky enough to be able to go into the office for my first week after a year of working remotely. This was great for me as I am very visual and found it easier to cope with the workload as I could physically see what I was meant to do.
Overall, I’ve come away with some new skills that I can bring to future job roles. As well as this, my confidence has increased and I have gained some more contacts who have kindly said I can contact them in the future for advice or job opportunities if they come up! Thank you so much to everyone involved for the opportunity.
