A digital media apprentice from Ilkeston who developed two short films for National Apprentice Week has been recognised by Prime Minister David Cameron.
Emma Jesson, 21, who is currently an apprentice at the Confetti Media group in Nottingham, created the films which star her, to provide insight into opportunities available as an apprentice.
Her films are among the first to appear on PM David Cameron’s ‘Made by Apprentices’ 2014 Pinterest page, an online visual display of interests and projects.
They demonstrate her day-to-day life as a creative and digital media apprentice, which includes hands-on experience of writing scripts, story-boarding, testing lighting and going on sets.
Emma said: “Working as an apprentice has given me a real insight.
“I’ve met so many inspirational people that are willing to train me up.”
She added: “The media industry is not easy to get into but this apprenticeship has opened many doors for me and I love what I do.
“I know it will give me a greater chance of getting a job in the industry.”
