Arwen the Assistant Producer

The Jolly RogersComment

Today a person called Arwen came in to talk to us about her work. She used to work for the BBC as a runner (a person that is like an assistant).

She is 29 years old and she did a degree in English at the University of Brighton. Her favourite food is a bacon and cheese burger, her favourite colours are green, blue, yellow and white and she is from Yorkshire.

Although she used to work for the BBC, Arwen now works for Tidy as a production assistant. She also said that script, costume/makeup, directing, filming and art are the most important roles in the TV industry. Then she let us read out one of her scripts!
