My name is Giles Bowman and I work for ITV SignPost as a Technical Production Specialist. This year I won the Rising Star award at the Royal Television Society awards! 

From an early age I was always interested in film and it was that fascination with the  filmmaking process that led me a degree in ‘Multimedia Technology’.

From there I went self employed offering production services and I did some short film directing in London. My first ‘big break’ in mainstream media came when I got a job as a researcher/camera operator for BBC’s ‘See Hear’ - from there I went on to work as an Assistant Grip with ITV’s Emmerdale Production Team in Leeds.

I've been at ITV SignPost for over a year now and as a Technical Production Specialist I have a number of different roles. When I'm in studio it's my job is to make sure that the programmes we sign are put through studio and delivered for broadcast. I worked on various external projects as cameraman all over the UK and I've also edited smaller projects and adding some of the lovely motion graphics you see on our broadcast documentaries.

To be honest finding my way into a job in media was challenging and there were times when I thought about a change of direction, but I’ve held on to my passion and I’d like to think that my experiences enhanced my creativity and, as a deaf person, I bring something unique to my work. 

Thankfully I enjoy travel - I was born in Surrey, went to school in Brighton and in my career thus far I’ve already worked in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle and I look forward to venturing even further afield.

There are more projects in the pipeline, including my first individual commission - to produce and film as short documentary; I've already cleared a space on my mantle piece for even more awards!
