By Kevin Rossiter on Fri August 31 2012 in the Video Blog HELPING MANAGERS MAKE BETTER VIDEO


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.
