HOW TO GET A JOB IN TELEVISION
Television is a demanding industry to work in, and an even tougher one to break into. Just knowing who does what, how the business is structured, where the jobs are and what skills each department needs might feel like a full-time occupation in itself.
This no-nonsense evening seminar is designed to take the guesswork out of getting started. Leading TV training experts Grand Scheme Media present this capsule guide to how television networks and digital channels operate, how shows get commissioned and the variety of job opportunities available in the field.
HOW TO PITCH A TV SHOW
So you’ve thought of a great concept and outlined a great script. But your show isn’t going to make it onto the small screen unless you can deliver a powerful pitch. This one-day course, created and led by programme-making consultants Grand Scheme Media, provides insider knowledge and practical experience of every element of TV’s complex pitching process.
You’ll learn not just what commissioners expect from a good a pitch, but also the presentation they find most persuasive. You’ll also get an up-to-the-minute breakdown of what channels are looking for what content, which will help you to target your pitch. As well as workshopping your own ideas, the course also give you a hands-on lesson in programme development, giving you the chance to interpret a real programme tender brief.
