Well we’re about to hit February, and so far not much has changed! I have secured one contract (for a week of Production Assistant work) with MTV, met two Executive Directors of production companies, attended three networking events, and received countless emails telling me that they don’t have a job for me now, but on the other hand encouraging me to stay in touch. The TV industry is certainly gearing up for a new year of commissions, but without commissions, no researchers are needed!
In the meantime, I have continued to pay the rent by swapping one pub job for a better paid, less time-consuming admin job. I am also very proud of the fact that my new comedy night in North London was a storming success, and the next one is coming soon! It really is very satisfying and motivating to have a creative project to work on alongside the persistence and perseverance that goes into breaking into the TV industry.
