Personal Bio

Name: – Thomas Clarke

Age:– 25

Education:- I am currently studying a  BA (Hons) English and Journalism (year 3) with a predicted classification of 2:1.

I have got two BTEC National Diplomas with 6 Merit grades in two different fields: Media Studios and Public Services.

Employment:- I have worked since I was 15 years old at Sainsbury’s Supermarket in a variety of different roles. I have also worked as a freelance journalist for Coventry University and as a cash collector for NCP car parks.

 I have always had a passion for film and film journalism and have written officially for an American film website (www.movieweb.com).

Film Interest:- I have many different interests, but ultimately my true passion is film. I study the theory behind the film industry while also writing journalistic articles surrounding the industry. My ultimate end goal is to become a film journalist for a magazine corporation, and will endeavour to succeed in completing this. I am analytical and enjoy breaking films down, so as to gain an insight into how the art form was created.

I have also been taught Teeline shorthand during my time at university, and I am currently at a level 3 grade for this discipline. I hope to utilise this skill in my future career.

I design magazine covers for a fictional magazine (Talking Pictures) as it gives me an opportunity to present my film interest while also learning further techniques surrounding Adobe Photoshop. I then use these covers to create personal magazines with the QuarkXPress magazine software – which I have medium proficiency in.

I am always pushing myself to achieve my career aim, and have set up this blog as another means to further advance my filmic knowledge.

Other Interests: – I am supporter of Arsenal football club, and have been for many years. I aim to watch every match and participate in social discussions surrounding the sport. I am also the president of a university society – where I create and run meet ups with various people from within the university.

I also enjoy reading, with fantasy fiction as my favourite genre. I use this as a means to wind down, and enjoy discussing books with various members of my course. This has led me to further promote and develop my communication skills.
