Section 2: Professional Development

2.1 

Please upload or summarise the crew test you did with Rupert

2.2

 Describe the structure and interrelationships of the production department. You can use a diagram or similar if you wish 

2.3 

Describe at least 2 potentional progression routes into the film industry (e.g. university, apprenticeships, entry level work, film festivals etc)

 Apprenticeships for film/tv institutions such as the BFI, BBC, Warner Brothers are ways to get recruited in a job in the film industry. They tend to recruit people they know.

There are schemes you can apply to which can lead to connections to industry professionals who can consider offering you a place in the industry if the effort is put in.

Try to get filming and your name out there as much as possible whether it is an online film competition, film festival or on social media. People’s familiarity of your work or name represents your status.

What do you plan to do when the academy is finished?

I aim to apply to other film courses which the academy introduced to the participants like the BFI Film Academy at NFTS and attend film festivals and events.

Briefly describe the job of one of your tutors, and what they have done in their career

 One of my tutors is a cinematographer who started off as a runner in the film industry. His BA degree in Textiles in the prestigious University for creative arts, Central Saint Martins led to his current career which shows that the film industry appreciates different specialties outside film.

2.4 

What is the wider creative media sector? (think about music, costume, advertising, animation, theatre, games etc)

Video game is a growing industry globally which offers a chance for consumers to experience a hyper-reality.

Explain how film production connects to the wider creative media sector

It has similar elements to film like story-telling, constructing characters and developing visual images. A game is begins with an idea, the same as it does to film.
