Experience is everything when you're trying to break into the television industry...
Sport was always a part of my life while growing up. I was into football and horse riding, and a long list of other activities, but I can safely say I never got involved in racing dirt-bikes. Well, today that changed when I went to Goulburn to do a presenting job for Foxtel’s sporting channels, Speed and Fuel.
I was reporting on dirt-bike racing, which involved a few PTCs (pieces to camera), interviews with various well-known racers as well as the editor from Dirt Action Magazine. It was a great day in seeing how the real action takes place in the commercial TV world as well as on the race track.
The atmosphere at the bike racing is definitely addictive and it has been a great item to add to my working CV.
The people I have met while working for Foxtel allow me to improve my knowledge and skill in front of the camera, I couldn’t hope for a better opportunity. (And just in case you’re wondering how I got the job, it was pure persistence and determination that led to me landing this presenting role).
I’m already looking forward to my next report on Dirt Action Racing. Until next show, stay tuned...
