My Time at Big Couch

Back to Articles 0 shares 0 comments

Well this is it, my last week at Big Couch and in London. It seems like this experience has flown by and now the end has come far sooner than I expected. The people I have met and worked with have been wonderful: Maria, Irina and Nico, and I will never forget my time spent in London.

When I was first matched with my internship at Big Couch, I was very excited as my first choice was in the Film & Production category. I interviewed with Nico, my awesome coworker with whom I now ride the tube at the end of the day. He is now someone I call a friend in addition to coworker and someone who I will truly miss when I leave.

Since Big Couch is in the middle switching gears to their new platform in development FilmChain, I have learned so much about the world of Blockchain and tech development. I never expected learning about this world going into this semester, though I’d heard a lot about Bitcoin in the past year, but this was always as a casual observer. Now, I have a much deeper understanding of what blockchain is, something that is very relevant to today’s upcoming products. I am excited to see how much FilmChain flourishes in the future under this amazing team.

One thing that I really enjoyed was being able to be part of the production of the short film Gold Star directed by Paul Frankl. I had the opportunity to be on a film set in London, something that I would not have imagined possible a year ago. Now I am credited as a Production Coordinator in London!

I am sad to see this chapter in my life end, though going into my senior year of university I am so glad to have had this opportunity. Having the wonderful experience of working in a cross-cultural environment is not something everyone has the chance to do and now I can cross that off my list. Honestly, if I could stay in the UK I would stay with Big Couch. Irina and Maria are such wonderful and hardworking women that have so much knowledge to share and I am glad they chose me to join their team, even if for the brief seven weeks that I was here. Here’s hoping that we cross paths again, and the next time I’m in London I know who I’m calling first.
