Tara is a lovely Welsh girl, one of the volunteers on the Great Primate Handshake Uganda trip 2012. All her friends call her Taz. Taz loves cycling, yoga and being vegetarian. Although she has a slender figure that would make most women crazily jealous, she has a great passion for the roughest sport of rugby! Currently she is a free-lance filmmaker. Alongside her free-lance work, Taz also helps out with Brighton University by making promotional movies about lecturers’ research projects. Two years ago, Taz had her MA degree in Film Production at Exter University. Previously in 2009 she graduated from the same institute studying European Film and World Cinema and gained her BA degree. She referred her university experience as ‘fun but boring’, as the social life was remarkable yet the modules were too theoretical to her liking. Consequently, when her student era was over she devoted herself into more practical based work. First she went to International Film School in Caerleon to gain more specific skills in filmmaking, such as editing and camera operation. Afterwards, Taz seized the opportunity of working with BBC Wales as well as BBC London. As significant as the company’s name sounds, Taz was directed to do marketing related jobs at BBC rather than film based works, also the work placement made her realise the crucial face in the professional industry. The idea of being forced into becoming a profit-oriented person put Taz off tremendously; meanwhile another idea came to her mind. Soon after she left BBC, Taz decided to be a free-lance filmmaker and start volunteering, to make every day meaningful and fulfilling. Hence she joined the Handshake team coming to Uganda in 2012.
