# Show Position Description
1 Coffee House Sessions Various Positions Working as camera OP on several sessions at first, he soon produced his own session. Was mostly there for the free Nachos
2 Christmas Massacre VT Director/Floor Manager/Actor Encouraged by Iona McEvans, the combined Christmas-Halloween livestream saw him acting as director for the very first time. The short found-footage style horror sequence had him work with many soon-to-be important faces of YSTV: Charlotte Rogers, Theo Bimson and Richard Jones.
3 Hidden Director, Writer, Editor He wrote the script for Hidden during the christmas break, which soon became his pet project. Shot on 5 days over 2 terms, mostly crewed by freshers and with a lot of help from DoP Anastasia Arsentyeva, Hidden developed into a massive project that caused the new generation of YSTV members to bond (especially over the 2nd day of shooting, which lasted for 17 hours). The film would only be released at the end of 2018's autumn term. It was shortlisted for Best Drama at NaSTA 2019.
4 YSTV Reports: AESTHETICA 2017 Assistant Camera OP Thomas joined the team at Aesthetica, which saw him use the C100 for the first time. Except for one interview, none of the video was ever released,
5 ISA Cultural Performance Night Camera OP Helped crewing and setting up the recording of the performances. This marked the first time he worked with Olivia Gibbs, with whom he would soon work together regularily.
6 FTO Debate 2018 Wireless Camera OP He spent several hours running around with a camera but without comms. Still seemingly did a good enough job to gain extra praise on the production's wiki page. Mostly due to catching bored audience members in embarrassing moments.
7 Unibrass 2018 Director, Wireless Camera OP For the first time, Thomas got to direct a section of YSTV's live broadcast. Which he enjoyed a lot.
8 PTO Debate 2018 Vision Mixer He vision mixed for the first time. Which was arguably not very impressive for he had exactly two cameras to work with.
9 ERN 2018 VT Director and Editor, Wireless Camera OP He volunteered to take on the live stream's intro video with Edwin Barnes, presenter Josh Gonorro Chapman and surprise cameo Alex Urquhart (YUSU President). The plan that had been made was mostly abandoned due to the sudden access to YUSU's Voteswagen - which was a good call.

The intro linked directly into the opening of the live show, where Josh was picked up by Thomas on the wireless camera as he entered the hall.

10 Lemons for Leukemia Presenter Making a deal with Richard Jones, he took part in the Lemons for Leukemia challenge. For which he had to eat a lemon. Which he enjoyed way too much,
11 Roses 2018 Trailer Director, Editor Directed the trailer for YSTV's coverage of Roses 2018, which was mostly improvised.
12 The Wizard of Oz Co-Producer, Editor Happening to find a hire opportunity on a shoot with bestie Stephanie Shires, they both produced this major commercial hire in just two days. They filmed to seperate performances of the musical and ended up spending several weeks in edit hell. The result was so well liked, however, that YSTV got hired several times in the future to film more theatre shows.
13 Behind the Streams: NaSTA 2018 Camera OP Thomas attended his first NaSTA in 2018, and spent most of the weekend running around with a camera - which kind of makes him the camera OP, right?
14 Roses 2018 Various Roles Thomas joined the crew for Roses in Lancaster, taking on several positions ranging from director to floor manager.
15 YSTV Rants Writer, Editor Throughout the second and third terms, Thomas created his own weekly show, which was aiming to be a more vulgar version of Honest Trailers. Each week, he would watch a new film and write an intentionally angry review on it. The show was voiced by Lydia Juhrich and span across six episodes.
16 The System Partial DoP He was a part of the fateful shoot of The System, joing the crew on three days as one of five overall DoPs.
17 The SU DoP Thomas took on the role of Director of Photography on Hector Macduff's satire short film.
18 Love York Awards 2018 Producer, Director With Edwin being nominated for an award, Thomas was trusted to both produce and direct one of YSTV's biggest live streams of the year. He also shot the video for the Outstanding Contribution to Student Life Award.
19 Summer Ball 2018 Camera OP ...
20 Guide to Campus Actor Spent a day wheeling around Richard Jones on a trolley and being abused by him. Which counts as acting, I guess.
21 Scene It! Director, Editor In his second term, Thomas started planning a comedic film review show with Charlotte Rogers and Theo Bimson. After several concepts failed, the show (which was themed around the film "Sleepless in Seattle") was shot at the end of Summer Term and got released shortly after Freshers' Week 2018. Before this, Thomas edited both an announcement video and a stand-alone review of Isle of Dogs as proof-of-concept.
22 A Killer Opportunity Director For the first TFTV 48h Film Challenge that he took part in, Thomas led a team made up out of YSTV members and directed a fake commercial for "Death Direct", an assassin firm.
23 Micklegate Run 2018 Camera OP, Editor Thomas came back early from his summer holiday to join the team for Stephanie Shires' pet project. On the race day, he and presenter Jacob Boyle were stationed behind the finish line, welcoming the teams after the race. Thomas later edited the highlights video.

Trying to write a proper comedy script this time around, he started shooting at the end of November, but once again had to complete the film in the following term.

The video was released as the culmination of 12 Days of Christmas on Christmas Day 2018.
18 YSTV goes Pole Dancing Presenter Got talked into trying out pole dancing on camera by Klara Simonova, Prakriti Jha and Charlotte Rogers. The video led to a lot of amusement within YSTv and its viewers and launched the "YSTV does..." series.
19 Riddle Me This Executive Producer Hoping to producer a more impressive Give It A Go session, Thomas led the team creating the concept for Riddle Me This, a riddle-themed game show.
20 YSTV does Hunted Fugitive Thomas was one of the first to sign up for the very spontaneos filming, for which he went on the run with team partner Joseph Wharfe. After several adrenaline-filled chases and even being split up from his partner, Thomas and Joe were eventually caught next to Clifford's Tower. To this day, both insist that their rivals (Andrew Waddle, Zoe Dickinson and Caroline Preynat-Viero) only won because the Hunters spent the entire time chasing after them. This shoot also caused Thomas to furthermore refer to hunter Cal Cooke as "The Terminator".
21 James College Video Assistant Camera OP Helped Edwin Barnes film a short commercial project with James College.
22 #Bustice Director, Producer Asked for help by YUSU's Community and Wellbeing Officer Steph Hayle, Thomas agreed to create the campaign video for her Bustice initiative.
23 YorCups Director, Producer Following the release of the #Bustice video, Thomas was contacted by YUSU Commercial Services who wanted to advertise their YorCup scheme. Despite being busy with Elections, the team produced the video in record time - and ended up with a ton of free YorCups in the studio.
24 The FetSoc Doc Presenter, Editor Joined the team for Matthew Zeffertt's pet project as advisor and editor. Also took part as presenter in YSTV's visit to a discussion meeting and a rope workshop (continuing an unhealthy trend of him being tied up in YSTV productions).
25 YUSU Elections 2019 Camera OP Reprised his position as Wireless Camera Operator for the FTO Debate, sharing the role with Andrew Waddle due to the sheer weight of the new gimbal. During the Elections Results Night, he worked as Floor Manager for the main hall.
26 #RentRant Camera OP Operated both cameras for the interview with Steph Hayle.
27 AES Conference Camera OP Helped out occasionally on the massive live stream, which lasted for three days.
28 YSTV does Rockclimbing Director, Editor Originally created for a course assessment, Thomas created a longer version of video to share Matthew Zeffertt's failed attempts at rockclimbing.

30 YSTV Reacts Producer, Editor Despite knowing full well that it would be a horrible idea, Thomas organized public watching for the disappointing Game of Thrones finale. The reaction video was posted just one day after the episode had first aired.
31 Love York Awards 2019 Producer, Co-Director, Live Highlights Editor Reprising his role as LYA producer, he also shared the roles of director and live highlights editor with Olivia Gibbs.

33 Maths Skill Centre Camera OP Helped film this commercial project, which included him shooting a timelapse following Jacob Boyle from HesEast to the library.
34 Summer Ball 2019 Camera OP, Editor Was assigned to produce the announcement video and a 30sec recap video. Managed to edit and release the intro video just in time for the event's opening (despite having to re-shoot it). Crewed as camera OP for the rest of the evening.
35 Everything Sucks Director, Co-Writer Thomas took part in TFTV's 48-Hour-Film-Festival with the YSTV team. After most plans failed throughout the first day, he ended up helping Olivia Gibbs write the script at 2am and directed the short film with her the following day. The film premiered the next day and will be released for Freshers' Week 2019.
36 TV on the Radio Guest At several points throughout the year, Thomas was a guest on the radio show. Three times to be exact. Which is more than he was allowed without paying membership. He still hopes he won't be caught.
