Implications of Brexit

**The course is based on setting up shoots from the UK so will advise of UK based companies/contacts/policies.  However it is suitable for non-UK crew to take as most considerations about foreign filming will be the same wherever in the world you are**


Hannah Gosney is an experienced Head of Production/Senior Production Manager. She has extensive knowledge and experience in setting up foreign shoots in most countries in the world as well as remote and hostile environments. These include places such as Afghanistan, The Arctic, The Amazon Rainforest, The Oman Desert as well as countries such as Russia, America, Dubai, Laos, Vietnam and countless others.

Terms & Conditions

Do you accept attendees who have a bursary?

Yes. Bursaries are available via various companies such as Screenskills.

Attendees must pay for a ticket first either via Eventbrite or Invoice and will then claim for the cost via the company providing the bursary. I’m afraid I cannot accept payment from individuals after the course/event has taken place.

Will you send me a VAT receipt?

If paying via Eventbrite, you will receive a confirmation email detailing the costs. If you require a more detailed receipt please contact me via contact@mediacareeradvice.co.uk and I can send you a receipt on company headed paper.

However do note that I am not currently VAT registered, so I’m afraid VAT can’t be claimed back on the ticket price via your personal tax return.

My company needs to pay via invoice

No problem. Drop me a message via contact@mediacareeradvice.co.uk and I can prepare an invoice for you and book you a place on the course. You will need to send me your company name and address for the invoice.

Payment via invoice to be made no later than 30 days from date of the invoice.

I don’t want to appear on camera

Personally I feel it benefits other course participants any myself as a tutor if you are able to appear on camera. However if you’d prefer not to that’s fine, it isn’t a course requirement to have your camera on at all times.

If you need to cancel

There will be times when you may book onto courses/events and subsequently find that you are unable to attend. In these situations I ask that you notify me of your need to cancel as soon as possible.

Your booking can be transferred across to the next available course date. Alternatively a refund will be issued to attendees who cancel at least 1 week prior to the course/event. If you have booked via Eventbrite then Eventbrite’s fee is non-refundable. This fee is calculated at 8.39% of the ticket cost.

Attendees who cancel within the 1 week period will not be eligible for a refund unless I am able to find someone else to take their place.

What happens if Media Career Advice cancels?

There may also be times when I need to cancel a course/talk.

In the first instance we will re-book attendees onto the next available course. However if this isn’t possible we will provide a full refund to all delegates booked onto those courses/events.

What happens if I lose connection?

You will need an internet connection that supports video conferencing and a device that has a camera and a microphone.

In the event of a lost connection email contact@mediacareeradvice.co.uk to discuss options to catch up on the sessions missed.
