One of the best ways to stand out from the competition and land a job in the teleivision industry is being able to self shoot. The ability to point and shoot refers to the most basic skills needed for filming and it's generally understood that you can compose, frame and film a basic shot, such as for an interview. Learn the basic tips of this valuable skill in 60 seconds, as explained by Ollie, from Pro Motion.
The latest RTS Futures event sold out in just two days, reflecting the increasing demand in the industry for researchers and assistant producers who can shoot their own material.
“Shooting stars: a beginners’ guide to self-shooting” offered advice from a panel of self-shooters, chaired by executive producer Matt Bennett, whose credits include Channel 4’s The Island with Bear Grylls and Sky 1’s Ross Kemp: Extreme World.
In the second in our series of Tips in 60 seconds... we look at CV writing. We know getting that first job in TV is tough but if you can impress talent managers like Elsa Sharp then you're on the right track. With over 17 years' experience as a TV researcher, series producer and recruitment executive, Elsa knows what makes a good CV and has even published a book on it.
The latest RTS Futures event, "I made it ... in drama", was graced by a panel of three high achievers. Quizzed by Guardian TV critic Julia Raeside, the trio Roanna Benn, executive producer, Chris Lunt, writer, and Colm McCarthy, director, all revealed that breaking into telly and building a career had been far from straightforward.
