New Opportunities

Here is another fantastic opportunity to expand your network. It’s ran by the world’s leading TV festival in Edinburgh, and it’s FREE: https://www.facebook.com/TheNetworkEITF/about/?ref=page_internal. Application form here.

Make sure you are registered on as many things as possible. For those of you NOT in full time education, you can register here on NFM crew database and/or with Creative England.

This is a great time to get your CV updated and ready for when productions hit the ground running again. Do as much homework/research as possible during this period as it will assist you moving forward.
