Film and TV is a highly competitive sector and being able to demonstrate that you have relevant work experience will be a great advantage. Building up a portfolio of work that shows your skills and experience is also important.
You can begin building your skills and experience at university by volunteering, doing an internship, having a part-time job or by doing a professional placement.
You could contact local production companies to see if they can offer a work experience placement by sending a speculative application. Search Wired Sussex's directory for more potential contacts
