Following on from the CMC empowering students blog, James Kerr from Kerrupt Animation explains more about what the volunteer guidance session he’s producing on Tuesday afternoon can offer those who want to get into the industry.
The Children’s media industry is on the whole welcoming and has long been a training ground for new-entrants. But it’s a competitive market with many options, especially as media-makers mix their platforms and techniques. Getting your foot in the door to meet the right people has never been more difficult. Learn the best places to aim for, and how to get your skills and talents in front of the people who make the decisions – from those who’ve been there and done it!
It’s an exclusive opportunity, only open to CMC volunteers, to hear from industry insiders the tips and tricks you never learn in a lecture hall!
The panel includes experts from the worlds of TV production, music, journalism, publishing, the BBC and animation. Together they can offer a unique insight into what it’s like to work in the media industry and how best to get in front of the right people. It’s an essential session for gaining an competitive edge for those about to step into the highly competitive jobs market.
