If you’ve ever dreamed of a career in film or TV (and I know some PPLS students do – see case studies of PPLS grads Ryan Seville, Creative media director and Amy Hawes TV researcher – now is your perfect time to find out more, courtesy of BAFTA!
This is your opportunity to listen to and quiz the panel of experts to find out more about:

- developing your network – this is a career area where networking is key – (and if the work ‘networking’ strikes terror, see my previous post on this, and try your hand via our online Networking Game)
- how to maximize your chance of success.
And who’ll be on that panel of experts……?
- Alan de Pellete (Acting Director, BAFTAScotland, Writer/Producer – Off the Ball, Chewin’ the Fat, Still game)

So come along and listen to their thoughts on themes and topics such as how to gain experience in the Industry, what life’s like as a Film/TV professional, what the future holds for the industry in the UK.
You’ll also get a chance to ask your own questions to the panel, and network in the Pleasance bar after the more formal event.
( a further thought re networking – Amy Hawes, recent Edinburgh English grad now television researcher (see above case-study) says
‘This industry is all about knowing people. I knew absolutely no-one when I started, but through all my endeavours, my short film making and making use of every contact, I eventually got my break’.)
