What does creativity mean to you? In the purest sense of the word, art, literature, films and those lucky, lucky people whose creativity make these things. And then, those people who just think differently and take a different approach to a problem. Sometimes considered quite bonkers but then proven to work.
What do you enjoy most about being part of EVCOM? The variety (and boy has there been a lot of that in the last 18 months), the really friendly, enthusiastic members who support us in so many ways and the feeling of making a difference and providing services that are needed.
Three things you can’t live without? Food/wine (has to count as one), films and blue skies. And if I wasn’t a terrible, shallow individual I would say my son, my husband and friends. But I’m pretty sure they all understand where they stand in relations to food/wine…
Where can we find you at the weekend? These days, home in leafy Hertfordshire but pre-pandemic: visiting friends elsewhere in the country, ferrying my son from one ruby match/practice to another, avoiding cleaning the house
Favourite films: Blade Runner, Manchester by the Sea, African Queen, Saturday Night Fever
Favourite holiday destination: Greek Islands, Italy or Thailand. But I love a holiday and would happily go anywhere.
Amelia Brown – Marketing & Communications
What do you enjoy most about being part of EVCOM? Learning every day, adapting to the changes in our industry, creating and delivering new initiatives. And of course meeting and working with so many amazing filmmakers and event organisers.
Three things you can’t live without? Writing, people (extravert over here!), the one the only margherita pizza
Where can we find you at the weekend? Out and about, seeing art, seeing friends, dancing badly. Or spending time with my lovely flatmates!
Favourite films: The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao (sad), Portrait of a Lady on Fire (sad and gay), Mulan (true classic and a bit gay)
Favourite holiday destination: Somewhere by the sea
