Film London Coming to Bucks on Monday 9th March

We're delighted to welcome Bob Thompson of Film London to our industry panel discussion on monday 9th March at 11am to launch our new online MA in animation. Bob’s role at Film London is to "attract US, international and UK television and animation companies to base their productions in London through trade missions, events and other promotional initiatives". There is no-one better placed to advise our students on who is hiring in London and what skills are needed to land that vital first job.

Who is hiring animators and VFX artists in London? Who will be hiring in the next six months? Or a year? What sort of portfolio or demo reel do you need to get hired? And what is the best way to go about finding a job, internship or summer placement? Bring your questions, bring a notepad, and take notes!
