Brett has over 15 years experience working within the camera department for UK and international television broadcasters in Drama, Sport, Light Entertainment, Music and Childrens TV.
Brett has a BA (Hons) in Film and Moving Image (Leeds Metropolitan University in 2004) and a Level 3 in Education and Training gained in 2017. His first role in education and development was mentoring graduates for 3 Sixty Media at the Granada Studio complex in Manchester.
He said: “I love the diversity of work in my role and both the personal and professional rewards that come with direct and regular feedback from students and tutors alike. The diversity varies from technical challenges, keeping equipment loan scheduling well organized through to educating and pastoral care. The feedback varies from having translated a complex problem into a simple learning process to the satisfaction that comes from supporting general productiveness and wellbeing.”
Outside his subject area, Brett enjoys restoring historical items ranging from photographs, studio lamps to old hand and bench tools, as well as creating a relaxing garden environment and cycling.
