I am writing to apply for the Production Intern position at Shoot Europe.

Creativity – a word that makes the difference between boring and exciting, between run-of-the-mill and extraordinary. A word that many want to achieve. A word that best describes your work. From working with Nike to Hunter and Harper’s Bazaar UK, your company is one that makes any creative and hard-working person excited and willing to put in the hours.

Nowadays, we can be creative in a million of different ways. It gets harder by the minute yet exponentially more satisfying. Social media is a place where creativity is unleashed. From personal profiles to companies and celebrities, everybody is looking for that ounce of creativity to make them stand out from the crowd.

I cannot claim that I know the secret to unlimited creativity. But I do know that I can get you one step closer to that. My love of photography helps me exercise innovative ways to take the same photos millions may have had before me. (https://www.behance.net/gallery/58392579/Teodora-Ursoiu-Portofolio)

Through writing my traveling adventures on my online publication, I manage to string the same words everybody uses in a unique way.

I study Digital Media and Communication at the University of Westminster. A course that lets me experience and test different branches of the media industry. Thus, with only one university year under my belt, I have pitched an idea for a lifestyle publication through my journalism module. We were given the freedom to come up with anything, thus creativity was the key. I created a magazine that intertwines traveling with music and is addressed for the people who want to dance while exploring. For every article about a part of the world, a series of beautiful photos and a playlist of the songs one should listen while there will be available.

Moreover, I have created a website from scratch using HTML, CSS and WordPress (https://theroadlistmag.com/ ). I have directed and produced a short video regarding the surveillance society we live in (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkSj0nzAaHI). I am managing the social media accounts for a medical project sponsored by the European Commission. I love challenging myself, and last year did not lack in that.

Being an international student has its challenges but I have overcome this by being a fast learner and an adaptable person.  I feel this gives me an advantage and the open-mindedness and experience that is required in this field.  My hard-work ethic helps me achieve the goals that I have set my mind to.

This opportunity would be my entrance in this mesmerizing and somehow intimidating industry. I would love to have a hands-on experience within such a successful and innovative company. I want to extend my knowledge beyond university modules and use my creativity in new ways. I want to go to a job that I love and this seems like the perfect way to start.

Thank you for your time and I am looking forward to your answer!

Yours sincerely,

Teodora Ursoiu
