Owen Matthews works as a Creative Producer at Endemol Shine Australia.
He tells he owes much of his success to the skills he learned while studying at Bournemouth University. As he mentions: “It gave me a broad understanding of all elements of TV production allowing me to step up and move forward after taking entry level jobs in the industry.
I learned to be curious and to have the confidence to question everything.
I learned production techniques, scriptwriting, directing skills, editing, legal frameworks, budgeting, and the history of the industry I was venturing into, it was really helpful.”
Owen shows lots of excitement and love for his job and is proud of working with brands like Nike and being nominated for an Emmy for creating Printfriends, a mischievous community of finger puppets for FremantleMedia.
He encourages people who want to start a career in television to be brave and never stop learning.
