First Years in our Industries

Event Type: 
Section Meeting
Event Date: 
Thursday, November 21, 2013 - 18:15 to 21:00
6 Penrose Way Greenwich Peninsula
United Kingdom
Event Details: 

Thursday 21 November
Those who are starting off or are recently well established in a variety of jobs speak briefly about their experiences and how they see the industries going.  
They will reveal their secrets of success (and perhaps where things did not go as expected)
and thus provide a view of the world of the moving image in 2013.  


They will be accompanied by   someone, who knows them and are leaders of our industries, who will provide some brief reflections and comments.


The aim is to give a current view of the industries to those who are at or just a few years out of University – so that they are aware and prepared of their career challenges – and also to point out to those more established  that the world has changed since they started.
