Advice Session | Getting a Media Job

Tuesday, Jul 4, 2017 -

Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm

30-minute one-to-one sessions for people in the early stages of a media career. It’s often your first or second job that are the most difficult to find, and competition can be extremely fierce. So it’s important to apply for the right jobs and internships, and to send a CV and covering letter that give the best impression. Bring your CV and a sample covering letter, plus a short showreel if you have one. Before the session, research the type of job you’re looking for and possible employers. Once we have received your booking registration, we will be in touch to arrange a time-slot.

Belonging | Session 5: Article Twenty-three

Tuesday, Jul 11, 2017 -

Time: 11:00am - 1:00pm

Following on from our Peace of Mind installation in December, this coming year we explore the theme of Belonging. Many of us might recognise Belonging as describing the sense of individual wellbeing that can come from feeling that ‘we belong’. How is that feeing of security affected when society is changing rapidly around us? Taking key articles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights we invite you to join us in an initial series of five sessions exploring the implication and relevance of human rights to our sense of Belonging in our communities and nations.   From each session we will generate your different responses – spoken, drawn, recorded – from which we will create an archived contribution to the Belonging events at the end of the year. In this session we consider Article 23: ‘Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work’ with speaker plus keynote film from Equality Now

Wednesday, Jul 12, 2017 -

Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Join filmmaker Tim Richmond and sound artist Stephen Kidd on this one day overview of the analogue filmmaking process. There is a particular quality that analogue film delivers, a rounded tonal, lightly grained quality that reveals a sense of depth. This course will look at the technical aspects of shooting on film, including lens choice, film stock choices, lighting, the camera itself and the capturing of sound. In particular, you will explore the consideration and preparation required for filming with a limited quantity of film stock.
