Having joined us at the beginning of the year, Peter (Videographer) and Karen (Administration) have wasted no time in making themselves invaluable to the team. Displaying confidence, talent and an unshakable enthusiasm for their work, both additions have been nothing short of exceptional; further contributing to the friendly and welcoming working atmosphere we have all worked so hard to cultivate. Get to know them by reading below!

 

Peter Williams

Where did you grow up?

I was actually born in Bournemouth, but I grew up on the Wirral where I still am today

 

 Where did you go to school?

I went to Townfield Primary School before following my 4 older brothers to Ridgeway High School

 

What was your first job?

Technically my first ever job was a paperboy, but I suppose my first ‘proper’ job was working behind the till in McColl’s; back when minimum wage was below a fiver!

 

What interested you most about hi-impact when you were applying?

I love the idea of developing multiple skills and becoming a real all-rounder. Hi-impact advertised for a media & marketing position that would enable me to achieve exactly that, in an environment that encourages creativity and innovation. It was a no-brainer!

 

You’ve only very recently started. What are your impressions so far?

What first struck me about hi-impact was the people. Everybody has been so welcoming to me in my short time here, and I already feel like such a valued member of the team. I’m excited to meet the entire team once we’re all allowed back in the office safely, as I feel that is when I will get to feel the true hi-impact experience.

 

If you could give any advice to any aspiring Videographer , what would it be?

Create. Create. Create. It’s as simple as that really. Create as much content as possible, try new shots, experiment with editing techniques, and make mistakes! Mistakes are so valuable for a videographer because it’s a chance to learn and become better than you were yesterday. 

 

Cats or dogs? (This is the most important question of all!)

As much as I would love to own a dog someday, I’ve only ever owned a cat, so I’m going to stick my neck on the line here and go with cats…

 

A mind tortured through introspection; engulfed by gloom and painful dejection. Skin sinking deeper into blood and bone as the theatre of dreams sails the abyssopelagic zone. 

Hands shake, boots quake, news breaks – another 3 points you have failed to take. The Red Devils have fallen once more, plagued by mediocrity you can no longer ignore. To end your sorrows, you must answer my question.

Manchester Utd, what’s with the regression?

All I have to say is, Ole’s at the wheel.

 

 

Karen Jennings

 

 

Where did you grow up? 

When I grow up I’ll let you know… mainly West Yorkshire though

 

Where did you go to school? 

According to the sign Mirfield Free Grammer… not a specialist spelling school. Patrick Stewart went there too, so I could say Starfleet Academy!

 

What was your first job? 

Hiding in a walk-in fridge eating profiteroles…. Think I was supposed to be waitressing

 

 What interested you most about hi-impact when you were applying? 

The jolly nice tone of the ad, most important to be happy doing what you do all day.

 

You’ve only very recently started. What are your impressions so far? 

This is a very nice place to do what I do all day, with jolly nice people…. And bees…. And a dog…  And stick insects… and a magnificent Pylon to admire while I eat lunch.

 

If you could give any advice to aspiring media creators, what would it be?  

Something that bugs me and my friends… to bear in mind that not everyone likes pop music, to some of us tinnie boom boom noise is an absolute cringey turn off. 

 

Cats or dogs? (This is the most important question of all!) 

With the exception of my new hairy colleague Jake, I’ll stick to tiny low maintenance rodents, can’t imagine having such an enormous pet!

 

Dusty yellow skies and sunbaked dust, exhaust and cylinders bereft of rust. Rain-soaked tarmac and screaming smoke; gawking bystanders cough and choke. A dark visor studies the path ahead; beaming sunlight – foreboding dread. The lone riders’ purpose remains unclear; Schrodinger’s quandary of joy and fear. But one mystery is still unknown – ice cream; tub or cone?

Depends on the setting. If there is an opportunity to do something fun with the tub, sand castles or a little boat… go for the tub, if not, enjoy a lovely waffle cone…
