This site has been evolving since 2007.. when I embarked on a project (with a little bit of help from my friends) to ‘blag’ it in to festivals, sneak backstage and interview some famous musicians. I managed to shoot, edit and present my own online TV show, which I got online faster than any mainstream broadcaster. I would then go to my day job for 9am on a Monday morning.. (..yes! After no sleep!).

This resulted in many brands wanting to work with me. I was sent to New York to interview Usher on behalf of Vodafone – a competition I won after being voted through three rounds on myspace (yes old skool).

The film I created in New York led to further commissions from the brand.

I am lucky to say I have travelled to festivals in various different countries interviewing lots of different artists and musicians.

I have also lived in South Korea and have even been ‘Brit Girl’ at the Brit Awards for Company Magazine.

IN THE BEGINNING:

I studied BA (Hons) Interactive Media at Bournemouth University where I gained a 2.1. This degree was creating projects using software packages such as Flash/Director MX etc. In my final project I chose to create and programme an interactive video game in Director MX.

My dissertation I wrote on the topic: “Refugees, Asylum Seekers and the Daily Express” – Is The Daily Express’ Coverage of asylum seekers and refugees negative?”. 

Post uni, and on my move to London I was lucky enough to get a break as an intern at MTV2 in Camden. This would include meeting and having the opportunity to work with some high profile people; such as Paul McCartney, Zane Lowe, Drew Barrymore to going on tour with the crew (sometimes as the only female on board).

From there, I then went on to gain experience in several production companies and broadcasters (such as ITV where I worked as a Multimedia Producer)Becki Burrows CV_2017

INTERESTS:

I am interested in making films – that have a social conscience and that help change situations for the better.

I have experience of volunteering for several organisations; for instance Eaves Charity in South London that works with survivors of domestic abuse.

Currently, I volunteer at Citizens Advice in Portobello Road.

I love films, documentaries, music, art, philosophy, swimming, eating nice food, learning new things, cycling, learning new skills, meeting new people, talking to people, experiencing different cultures, books.

My favourite book: Mans Search for Meaning by Victor E Frankl

Favourite film: tough one – but it’s between The Labyrinth, Back to the Future, The Goonies, Stand by Me, American Beauty.. ok I haven’t got a favourite film.
