Interview: Samantha Kidd – Presenter
Time for our final interview presenter!
And though she’s last, she’s certainly not least!
But you can find that out for yourself.
Q: How long have you been in the business?
A: For 6 years, ever since I graduated the ALRA drama school.
Q: How did you develop your talent?
A: Well, before I went into presenting I did a lot of acting work. I did some work in Emmerdale and a few short films. For the past few years I have also been a part time drama teacher.
Q: And that got you into presenting?
A: Yeah. I started to do corporate style presenting for a few different companies – like Pit Stop Productions and Cavalier Studios. Through these I got work promoting the London 2012 Olympics and a fitness game for the XBox. I’ve also done voiceover work for Marks and Spencers and Nectar Card.
Q: Have there been any recent changes?
A: Over the past 6 years I’ve seen a rise in online presenting work – most of which is corporate video. The current economic climate has meant that the acting jobs have dried up, but there’s more than enough presenter work to keep me going.
Q: What do you like best about what you do?
A: I like the variety it offers. Everyday is different – I get different challenges, work for different companies and I get to meet new people.
I also enjoy travelling, and a presenter is always travelling!
Q: How was the audition?
A: It was lovely.
The people there were really nice and friendly – and they were specific with what they wanted. This makes the job so much easier. They also has really hi-tech equipment – it was all very professional.
Q: Do you think Studio Rossiter will be a good company to work for?
Yes. As I said they were all very nice. They seem to be easy going yet professional at the same time. They’re also easy to get hold off – and they don’t keep you waiting.
