Being passionate about film is not enough to get a job in the industry. In what is unarguably a competitive market, how do you go about getting noticed? It’s a crowded place so what can you do to stand out? Do not despair!
In this careers talk hear about the different types of roles that are available, and get advice on how to approach developing a career in the film industry. There is a huge range of careers available, some of them you might have never even heard of yet. Having creative skills are important, but that isn’t the whole story; the industry needs amongst other things, individuals also who can speak languages, can drive, write computer programs, understand social media, are interested in marketing/writing press releases, have business skills and young people who are studying STEM subjects.
Leave this session with a strategy to turn your thoughts into actions!
This event is free but booking is essential.
