Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

Cue Anshie!

24 April 2015

So here that idea is. Anshie Patel works at (deep breath) ‘The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology’. And… breathe out. Or just say IMarEST! The Institute is a force for good, keeping the seafaring world up to date on – well, marine engineering, science and technology across the globe.  Anshie is Marketing and Communications Executive at IMarEST, and with an eye out for a presenter for a film linking the five we’re going to make about seafarers in training, Seafarers UK thought she would fit the bill. And she does. The picture is from her screen test, which I can honestly say was just about flawless. She also passed the nit-pick test, as I made her retake… and retake… and retake again… but she kept her nerve and delivered. And all on her first time front of camera. Neat!
