Ads

These are the ads I contributed to the making of. Even though it was a tiny contribution because I was interning at the production company (Solent Film) and I was still learning, it was wonderful to observe and help the planning and filming of the adverts.

The production side of advertising was fairly new to me. That’s why I decided to give it a go. You will never grow if you never try, right? Walking out of my comfort zone always turns out to be the best decision.

I was having an incredible time because I met representatives from world-famous ad agencies like KARMARAMA and Wieden + Kennedy. The production industry is intense, highly competitive and fascinating. Being interested in Advertising, I had the opportunity to see all the workload which follows the creative brief.

I have included these ads not as part of my personal portfolio, but as an example of the type of work I was involved with in 2019 . I found this internship very benefitial because when planning an ad campaign and writing a creative brief I can now see beyond and into the filming process. Thus, I can make more informed decisions and have a real idea of how my vision can be brought to life.

Here’s what my summer 2019 looked like…

And here are some behind the scenes photos of what I recall as one of the most exciting internships.

Every job you start has a lot to offer. This one offered me a first-hand experience of how exciting a job in advertising could be, even though it was focused on the production side of it. It made me even more convinced that this is my calling and that I should pursue a career in this direction.
