Shebani Walia

​​​Shebani has just started a new job at TV production company Label1 as an Officer Runner, having previously worked as a freelance camera operator, runner and production assistant in various TV studios.

The former Plashet School pupil attended Havering Sixth Form College from 2013 to 2015 studying BTEC Law, and A Levels in ICT Applied and Moving Image Arts. She achieved a Distinction* and two B grades.

She progressed to study Film and Television Production at the University of Hertfordshire where her passion for a career in the production department of studios producing films, music videos and commercials, was developed.

While still at uni, she won the Indie Training Fund Creative Skillset Award at Visions Film Festival in May 2018 for her film ‘A Dancer Dies Twice’. She was also nominated for the Warner Bros Best Production Design for the same film.

After leaving university she secured work as a camera operator at Private Affairs, director of photography on short film Sofa Surfer, a lighting director on a photoshoot, spark trainee on a music video and a runner at TVT Productions and Epiphany - as well as at the BBC.

Shebani, 22, says she is independent and proactive and wants to succeed in everything she does. She is looking forward to her new role and is really excited about the challenges the job will bring.
