So you’re interested in TV, film or media and want to explore your options before settling on a path? You’ve gone to uni but have realized that it’s not an automatic “in” into the industry? You were told about this programme by someone and aren’t sure whether it’s worth it?

Spoiler Alert:

It is.

I went to The Network 2017 and this is a post all about why (and how) you should apply.

For those not in the know, The Network is a free entry-level scheme to help you start a career in television. It takes...

Now that my living situation has finally settled down a bit, I am working on making something a reality that I’ve carried in my head for several years now.

My inspiration bookshelf.

What’s this you ask?

Well, I’m one of those humans that tends to drown themselves in media. The fact that by now I can basically speak Lorelai Gilmore’s dialogue better than she can attests to this. Point is, the way I often end up being inspired to write or create is by taking in the creativity of other people. TV show...

Last Sunday saw the airing of the final episode of Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery. All I can say is that I hope there will be many more seasons, and that Season 2 better hurry up and get released because I CANNOT wait for more!

I have been a fan of Star Trek for a majority of my life. My mum was a Trekkie and growing up it just seemed normal to have the DVD Boxsets of all the shows (except Enterprise because well, that one’s an acquired taste) taking up an inordinate amount of shelf s...

With us recently passing the 1-year anniversary of when I shared my first YouTube video with the world, I’ve been thinking more and more about my creativity, my motivations, my long-term goals and short-term plans.

 A light-hearted rant on the horrors of job-hunting and the lessons to be learnt from living with cats ...

 This is a sentiment I’ve been expressing quite a bit lately.

Why?

Oh you know, just applying for jobs, worried about finding a place to live, feeling the conflicting parental pressure of “Please leave, like, yesterday” as well as “No, baby, stay here, don’t go out there, it’s scary”.

Those things really get to a person. I’ve now been hunting for jobs, for work experience, for internships (lite...
