Ella’s interest in people and positive outlook on life means that she grasps any new opportunity with both hands.

TV and Film Research

Her most recent project with Whisper is developing the “Paralympic Bible” for Channel 4’s coverage of the postponed Tokyo 2021 Paralympic games. The lead in charge of putting together an encyclopaedia of all the Paralympic sports, Ella is also supporting the Series Producer plan and organise shoots with the Paralympic Athletes.

Ella has a proven track record in high profile sporting events for TV. These include working as a researcher supporting the commentary team on the Invictus Games in both Sydney and Toronto for the BBC, working as a production coordinator with Sunset Vine at BT Sport on football and rugby programme delivery and working with Channel 4’s 2018 Winter Paralympic coverage team.

During the 2018 Paralympics themselves, Ella had the challenge of working night shifts from the UK and was placed in the Gallery supporting the producers and the surrounding team, by updating them about the sports, athletes and live results.

In 2016, following a 12-month placement as a production researcher, Ella had the amazing opportunity of attending and working on the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games in Rio. As a production researcher, Ella was responsible for creating a research encyclopaedia at Sunset and Vine, about all the Paralympic sports, whilst applying for all the Staff accreditations and booking flights for the Production team. During the Paralympics themselves, Ella was live in the studio supporting the presenters with information about sports, athletes and live results.

Earlier on in her career, Ella also worked at Film Nova Production Company with the BBC covering the Great North Run, booking interviews prior to the start of the race and also worked as a TV sports researcher on Channel 4’s World Para Athletics Championships in 2017.

In 2019 Ella turned her hand to film production and was a researcher at HTYT (Harder Than You Think) Ltd, on the production of the Netflix film, ‘Rising Phoenix’ where she researched athletes, created short biographies for the directors and production team to use on set, supported with athlete communications and found suitable locations to shoot.

Media appearances

Being a TV researcher Ella is more used to being behind the camera. However, launching her Wheelchair Workouts has propelled her into the spotlight. Happy to be a spokesperson for encouraging inclusivity in sport and not afraid to boldly discuss the difficulties faced by living with disabilities, Ella is an inspiration to anyone she meets.

Here’s a couple of recent interviews:
