like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for
donating money for the Maurice Hilton Trust.
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. 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.
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.
was my first taste of TV filming and I enjoyed every second
"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."
