Crew Database Launch at Crew, Production & Facilities Get-together : Elstree Wednesday 19th September
Wednesday, 19 September 2012 from 18:00 to 21:00 (BST)
Creative England is to launch its new crew database at its forthcoming crew networking evening at Elstree Studios.
The free database will cover all of the English regions and is being launched at the same time as a national locations database.
Come to Elstree on Wednesday 19th September to find more about how the databases can help you and also to meet fellow crew, facilities and production professionals.
The Elstree event will be the eighth in the nationwide networking programme that aims to bring together crew, facility houses, BBC and ITV employees, and production companies across the the film, TV and digital sectors.
You might be a production company looking to find a new member of the team, a student looking for contacts to find an internship or a crew member wanting to know what production opportunities are going on in your region. Everyone is welcome.
The event will be held at Elstree Studios between 6-9pm on Wednesday 19th September where you will also get the chance to meet the Creative England Production & Locations team.
A light finger buffet is being provided by Elstree Studios, our host for the evening, and the event is being sponsored by Brookson and Towergate Professional Indemnity.
Our resident accountancy sponsors, Brookson, provide accountancy services for media and creative freelancers. Brookson’s comprehensive service and proactive support mean that whatever your work pressures, you benefit from the peace of mind of knowing your finances are in order and that you are working compliantly.
