Ashley Jade Backhouse
BA (Hons) Film and Moving Image Production
I am a postgraduate of the Film and Moving Image Production course at Norwich University of the Arts and have spent my final year delving into production design as my chosen specialist area of study. With each brief set, I had the opportunity to put my education of the subject into practice by conceptualising, designing and constructing each production’s design. In gaining this vital experience, I have taken on new technical skills, honed my craft as a designer and worked on my own signature style.
In developing my niche as a designer, I found whilst working that I thoroughly enjoy the intricacies of a scene’s design that can communicate subtle traits about the story or character to the audience. I channelled my love of this type of design into the two graduate films I was privileged to work on, by creating props that would enhance the story in a visual sense. Production design is something I am truly passionate about, and am looking forward to my future in the industry.
