So I’ve come to the end of my placement at Big Brother and I’m now home, working on packing for Uni tomorrow!
I’ve had a great time and been privledged to work in a range of roles that make up the Big Brother production team. On my last day I worked with the spin off team who organise Big Brothers Bit on the Side where I was given the tasks of creating spreadsheets with local universities and colleges contact information and details. I was also sent out to the local high street to hand out flyers encouraging audience members to come be part of the spin off show. This is part of the same team I worked with on my first day, so it was nice to see familiar faces and work with their team again.
As an overview of my time at Elstree Studios, I have learnt a lot about the TV industry and have gained a lot of knowledge and hands-on experience, working with people who have a lot of fun but are still very professional.
I’d like to thank the Tuskar Trust for giving me this opportunity, especially Jim, David and Dermot who have provided me with support and organised this placement. For now, I’m off to Portsmouth tomorrow to start University, wish me luck, and hopefully you’ll hear more from me soon.
Thanks so much again, Michelle
