22.4.2021

This week in the spot light is the vibrant young Editor Mr Jordan Caple.

You will find Mr Caple based head down and working in the short form department in UK TV,

but what really goes on inside this mans head?

 

How did you become a Farmer?

A former farmer friend of mine had been working here as a runner said how much fun it had been to work here amongst the runner family. So I pestered her to help me get an interview and eventually met with Mark. I guess I must have made a good impression on my trial despite not knowing any of the types of tea...

 

 

What is the best part of your job?

The freedom to do both offline and online edit work over in the short form department at UKTV. We can work on several projects in a day so no two days are the same.

 

 

What have you missed most in Lockdown?

Seeing actual humans. It's great that we can work from home efficiently for UKTV but I do miss the human interaction. That and Friday night beers of course!

 

 

What’s the one thing that most people do not know about you?

When I was younger I wanted to be an actor. But soon realised that my talent was better used behind the camera.

 

 

What’s the last thing that made you smile?

Finally meeting a friend for a coffee and a game of chess outside. We'd both watched The Queen's Gambit and fancied ourselves as decent players. We weren't...

 

 

The funniest thing that’s happened to you at the Farm?

When I was a runner I took an order for what I thought was some wasabi followed by a nice 'please'. So when I brought it back they asked where their Wasabi Peas were. I should have known better.

 

 

How do you unwind and de stress after a busy day?

Listen to a record or stick on a favourite sitcom.

 

 

What three words best describe you?

 FarmFF. Champion. 2k16

 

Your favourite Farm Animal?

 The GOAT
