For those looking to work in the US, Michelle will discuss the subject with TV and Film Director Alex Kalymnios and actor and writer Sherill Turner, who also share their moves across the pond. The seminar will also feature a clip from Angela M. Hutchinson of not for Profit organisation “Breaking into Hollywood” and include handy tips and hints.

BECTU’s annual event for freelancers in film and TV on today (Friday 29 May at Ravensbourne) boasts a great line-up this year. Visitors will be treated to nine group sessions, as well as the fair exhibition and technical area and opportunities for one-to-one advice on tax and careers.

Other practical advice will be delivered too in sessions dealing with everything from HD Cameras to Funding your own Programmes and Features.

“There’s no doubt the team in our Writers, Producers and Directors’ branch, with the generous support of so many industry figures, has lined up a great day with plenty of opportunities to discuss industry challenges and to secure the kind of advice which can only help to move careers forward. All visitors have to do is to choose which sessions to take part in.

“It’s also the Fair’s 10th birthday so we’ll be celebrating too,” said Mike Dick chair of BECTU’s Writers Producers Directors branch.

The event is part-funded by BECTU, the media and entertainment union, with assistance from sponsors, Blue Skies Partnership, Creative Skillset, Hencilla Canworth, ProductionBase and Thompsons Solicitors. BECTU members attend for free; non-members pay just £13.25 (which includes lunch where tickets are booked in advance).
