Jaimini Chandarana

I studied Media Technology and Production which allowed me to gain the scientific knowledge to take into the industry.

I started working for an independent company as an editor for short films and applied for a technical operator role for the BBC. I am now a senior operator at BBC and have worked for a range of programmes and services such as The One Show, Asian Network, BBC Three, Victoria Derbyshire and BBC News.

I currently work as a graphic designer for BBC Look North Yorkshire, Sunday Politics, The Super League Show and Inside Out and I am responsible for producing on air graphics across the new and legacy brands – from conceptualising and translating briefs into effective, inspirational and creative complex graphics for day to day news and longer form edits.

Working in TV gallery and studios is something I have always thoroughly enjoyed. I have gained valuable experience by operating cameras on live productions, floor managing in studios and major outside broadcasts, directing and sound mixing in the gallery.
My passion for technology can be traced back to my pre professional days whether it be directing drama productions at school to sound supervising on location for local community projects. My interest in technology goes far beyond my day job and working on projects outside of work allow me to keep up to date with an ever changing tech industry.
