Inspiring Employment – “Self-employment” with Paul Carter


– I just wanted to give you a little chance, if nothing else, to explain a little about the Mark Three production stuff. A lot of people go into self employment and there is something to do with their disability and fluctuations in their energy and health. Now, I am not sure if that’s as specific for you. It felt, from what I know, more of a ‘what you wanted to do’ progression. Just wrap up with what you do at Mark Three and your general thoughts on Self employment really. – Yea, I’ll start on that while it is fresh. I think it is a big important thing for both of us because the fact we can manage our workload and our conditions and our health is a really important thing for us. I don’t think we would be able to do what we do working full time for someone else. – Right, ok. – I don’t think it would be massively practical. What we do is do varied and the workload is so unpredictable. This week we have been shooting and travelling, whereas next week we might be in the office all day, everyday. There is no day the same which, when you’ve got impairments, its not always easy. One other thing I’d like to mention is Access to Work. We’ve had some difficulties with them recently because they are not really set up for jobs or roles that are slightly unusual to them. They are a bit more flexible and a bit more different. – Yeah – They asked me the other day how many miles I travel in a week. I said, well that’s completely dependent on what I am doing and they struggled to comprehend that. In terms of what we do, like you said, we make broadcast television programs, corporate charity films, comedy shorts. Things like that. Inclusion is a big part of what we do. We like to do a lot of stuff around disability and presenting them in a slightly different light to a company run by non-disabled people might. – Cool and for those who don’t know you, we have even worked together in our current guises and you were kind enough to give me a bit of a break at tv presenting. Which I think typifies the work that you promoting the disabled cause and giving young disabled potential presenters, such as myself, a chance to do it. – Absolutely. Tv, well the media in general, its not the most forgiving industry if you’re different. We try and change that if we can. – Alright we’ll wrap up there. I’ll pop your contact details on the resources section. So if anyone wants to get in touch with Paul to do some work around production or just drop him a line then that’s cool. Thank you for your time today. – No probs Sibs. – I shall see you in a pub soon. – Take care Mart. See you later.
