Personal statement

Hi I'm Gursharon! I am currently in third year studying Media and Communications. I have undertaken Events, TV and Photography modules.

I am currently working on my dissertation which is focused on the meanings and pleasures that female fans take regarding the portrayal of femininity and female characterisation with regards to the show Pretty Little Liars. For my project I am working on a female empowered talk show called Tea and Talk, my role is a researcher and Vision mixer. For independent TV I had worked on a documentary based on taboo topics, one of the episodes we had filmed was surrounding the topic of drugs. My role for the documentary was researcher and camera operator.

Through my work placement I have gained experience as a events co-ordinator, being able to work big events with another co-ordinator and small events on my own. As part of my free time I am working as an assistant photographer for a photography/videography company in Wolverhampton.
