Yssis-Tiye says… 

Before starting my placement with STEP I was at college studying Film and Television Production at ELAM, as it has always been a keen interest of mine to work in the industry. Because of the camera and editing skills I learnt along the way I also work on my own freelance jobs where I make digital content.

My interests happily led me to STEP, which I am so thankful I have the opportunity to be a part of, as it has allowed me to get my foot in the industry with my first full-time job. I am excited as I feel as though this programme will aid me in growing as a person as well as a professional. I have only been at Prettybird (my first placement) for a month now and I have already learned so much! I’m looking forward to starting my second placement with 3 Mills Studios & I can’t wait to learn more and see what other opportunities this may bring me in future!
