A word from Marc Eubanks
 

Marc Eubanks is the Trust's first candidate to successfully complete his Scholarship of mentoring and work experience in the TV industry. Marc's words below convey some of the excitement and opportunity that came his way, making him ever-more determined to fulfil his dream of working in television...

 

"I'd like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for donating money for the Maurice Hilton Trust.

"While on my Scholarship, I heard so many great things about Maurice and hoped in some way I could have lived up to his standards and did True North Productions proud while being there. I had such a great time!
 
"I was mainly in the Post-Production department as a Technical Assistant (Digitizing, Conforming, helping with small computer problems).

"I was also in-charge of IT for the Sunday Life programme which was for the BBC"


"I was also in-charge of IT for the Sunday Life programme which was for the BBC. That was making sure the laptops were updated every week. Then on the Sunday, check the internet it working, that the BBC website was working and just help with any technical issues. I was even in charge of a smoke machine for one of the programmes, that was fun! I really enjoyed working on Sunday Life, because it gave me so much insight into the world of live broadcasting and it seems really interesting.
 
"On odd occasions, I would go out on shoots, been a sound man, or cameraman's assistant. It was so fun to go out and film because I hopefully one day want to be a cameraman. I assisted with Mark Austin's piece-to-cameras on the Real Crime programme with the Cop killer,  David Bieber.

"Me and Mark Stokes even went to Leeds/Bradford Airport to film a helicopter there. I thought I was going to Die! As the helicopter lifted off the ground, Mark just ran underneath it to get some shots and I had to follow him to make sure rain wasn't going on the camera lens. Was scary but I had such a great time. I also went to Hartlepool with Mark Stokes for the Canoe Man documentary.

"That was my first taste of TV filming and I enjoyed every second of it."


"That was my first taste of TV filming and I enjoyed every second of it. Even though Mark threw up on the way back! (Told you that soup didn't look right Mark!)
 
"I'd like to thank you all again for donating to the Maurice Hilton Trust. You've all made that dream of mine one step closer."
 
"Thank you"
 
Marc Eubanks
