Bex - Producer at Hatch Creative

"My career highlight to date has to be producing the ‘We Are Free’ television ad for boohoo."

Was this career what you’ve always wanted to do?

I knew fairly early on that I wanted to build a career within the Media Industry and more specifically working in television production. I had an internship at a production company in Camden when I was 17 and I shadowed a producer. It was then that I fell in love with the role.

Describe a typical day in three words.

Inspiring, challenging, diverse.

Any tips to people interested in your industry?

Networking is key.

What’s your favourite thing about your job?

Meeting new people and traveling to a variety of different, unique and wonderful locations.

And your least favourite?

As a producer it’s inevitable that you work with unpredictable hours.

What’s been your career highlight to date?

My career highlight to date has to be producing the ‘We Are Free’ television ad for boohoo. We filmed the two-day shoot in Dubai earlier this year and we were lucky enough to work alongside recording artist Rae Morris.

I can’t get through my day without…

A cup of coffee.

My go-to work outfit is…

Skinny jeans and a cami top. Practical but smart, you never know where you may be heading.

I finish my day with…

Meeting and catching up with friends.

"Networking is Key."
