Here’s what people said about last year’s HTGR Roadshow:

“A great opportunity to learn the different roles in film &TV. The CV advice helpful to know what employers would want to see.”

 “Laid back coffees at the end is useful for networking and getting any questions answered personally was a great touch.”

 “Gave a lot of insight into the entry level positions that could be available to me and also helped me understand what things I will need to end up in the industry.”

 “It was great that as well as getting an overview of what happens on set and how to get involved in that, we could also chat with the speakers afterwards and ask questions that were more specific to us.”

 “Having the pros there to share their experiences was extremely useful.”
