Things are progressing well with the Women in Film and TV Mentoring Scheme that our Director Debbie Howard is currently part of.
Every other week there are incredibly inspiring talks given by the other mentees on the scheme. So far we've covered working as a stunt women with Amanda Foster, writer multidimensional female characters with Adeela Sharif Antunes, Motion Graphics with Allison Brownmoore, how a DoP prepares for business with Audrey Aquilina, crowd funding with Lisa Francesca Nand and writing three act structure for thriller with Lotus Hannon. Lots more to come.
Debbie has begun meeting with her mentor Beadie Finzi from Britdoc, who's advice and guidance is proving to be incredibly beneficial. Beadie's wealth of knowledge about documentary is just what Debbie needs at this stage of making Still Loved.
As well as the regular meetings and talks there are extra sessions, from looking at improving CV's to speed dating and networking sessions with other industry professionals. As part of the scheme Debbie is also meeting with Nicola Shindler of RED in a few weeks time in Manchester.
