Hi Olivia! You’re an editor here at Soup. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a 23-year-old Wildlife Media graduate from Chester. I love being around my family and friends as well as my cats and any other animal I can get my hands on. I’ve always had a creative flare whether it be behind a camera, in the kitchen or at a sewing machine.
How did you get into video production?
When I was younger, I used to make stop motion videos on our old family camcorder using my brothers pirate ship set. So I definitely started young, but I never knew what I wanted to do growing up. I’ve always loved nature documentaries, so in the end it was this and really enjoying media during school that made me realise that video production was what I wanted to do.
What does your role at Soup involve?
Anything from sifting through footage and editing a film together, to helping out on set, or even researching for upcoming work.
What’s your favourite part about your job as an Editor?
I find the variety in projects so interesting which is great, this keeps it fresh and that’s really important. Also when an edit finally comes together with a nice track – that’s a good feeling.
And your favourite part about Soup?
Everyone was really welcoming at Soup when I joined so I felt right at home.
And now for the easy bit!
Pulp Fiction is my all time favourite but anything by Quentin Tarantino.
Fun fact about you?
I play the piano.
Favourite thing that you’ve worked on so far?
Country House Outdoor – trying out different lighting techniques in the studio was fun.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love to be outdoors, but you can also find me enjoying bars and restaurants around Chester.
