Our bright and enthusiastic new intern, in his own words…
My name’s Ed Midgley and I’ve just started working part time at Paradigm as a production assistant. I’m currently in my last year of college, doing a diploma in film and media. I enjoy it and really like being creative but I have this undeniable itch to get out into the real world and start to work with professionals, one of the main things I’m getting from working with Paradigm; Experience!
I think there’s only so much you can learn from a book but I can rest easy knowing that while I work at Paradigm with other creative minds, I will be learning more and more about the working world and having lots of fun while doing so!
I’ve written and directed a series of award winning short films, currently doing the rounds at film festivals all around the world. Take a look at the video below:
It’s not Hollywood just yet, but it’s a start. The first rung of a long, shaky ladder rife with hard work and exhaustion… And I can’t wait.
I was inspired by watching films as a kid like the Back to The Future trilogy and as I got older, the David Fincher crime films or the Tarantino masterpieces. And there are so many things to learn from them and apply to the corporate world, I’ve found something I really enjoy doing and get a real kick out of seeing a project come together.
I hope to be a valuable addition to the Paradigm team, all being well, I’ll make life slightly easier for my co-workers and learn a lot while doing so!
