Media Parents talent Hazel Palmer volunteered to help out at the Olympics, and ended up being a rollerskating NHS Nurse… If you missed her in the Opening Ceremony, here she is in all her glory… and out on the town with the other nurses afterwards as pictured in the New York Times link.

Hazel Palmer, Camera Operator, spent an evening on the other side of the camera as a rollerskating NHS nurse at the Olympic Opening Ceremony. New York Times Article.

From Hazel’s profile on

I have over 10 years experience in TV production and filming (on & off in between bringing up a child).

I’m experienced in many styles of camera work including ENG, PSC, multi-camera OB and studio, plus self-shooting directing of location reports, corporates and documentary. I’m skilled at hand-held, have a good eye for a shot and a good understanding of directing and editing requirements. I have many excellent reports from people I’ve worked with.

Projects I’ve worked on include news, entertainment, music events & videos, reality, sports, promos, short films and documentaries, with credits on Channel 4, BBC, ITV, Eurosport, TVNZ (New Zealand) and various film festivals.
I’m also adept at directing, lighting, sound recording, vision mixing, photography, editing (FCP & Avid) and rigging. I’m familiar with most types of camera (despite new ones coming out almost every week at the moment!)

I’ve a degree in Photography, Film & TV and am member of The Guild of Television Cameramen.  And you can find me on Media Parents here:

See for great networking, talent, jobs and information.
