Dear Ms Roberts,
Re: Lighting Technician (Vacancy Ref: #844)
I would like to express my interest in the position of Lighting Technician at your College, which I recently came across on Reed.com. As a film and theatre enthusiast, I strongly believe that I will make an immense contribution to an established organisation such as your own.
I have a Level 3 Diploma in Production Arts, which has enabled me to work with a variety of media equipment and trained me in its safe set up and use. As part of my studies, I have studied the science behind light and using appropriate lighting techniques for maximum effect, both during filming and live performances. I also participated in the set up and production of a short film, where I worked closely with my fellow production team members, including a director, scriptwriter and two camera operators. This allowed me to work with various IT and media equipment, and to follow detailed instructions from other people.
I am a creative and hardworking team player; I excel when working with others but I can also take the initiative and think on my feet during stressful situations. I am sociable and well spoken, having developed these skills during my college studies and in my everyday life.
I volunteered as an Amateur Lighting Technician for my College’s theatre productions and concerts, and therefore have built up my strength to take on the physical challenges that this role presents. Additionally, I have also gained health and safety awareness and training and developed a tolerance for heights. I would be honoured to utilise all my technical skills and abilities to become a valuable member of the media team at Bryman College.
Thank you for considering my candidacy, and please do not hesitate to contact me on 07652 291 038 to discuss my application further. I look forward to hearing from you.
