We had a blast last week running an exciting course of bespoke workshops for young performers to gain an insight into the entertainment industry. The Industry Breakthrough Week was funded by Discover Young Hackney – a Hackney Council initiative supporting young people to find their career in the arts.
Workshops included learning audition techniques, self-taping guidance and how to market yourself as a business. There was also an exciting Q&A session with Fiorentini Mosson Agency clients to provide students examples of what careers in the industry could look like.
“They were fun and very helpful. I am now so much more knowledgeable than I was before the start of the week.” – Louise
“It was really informative and taught me a lot of stuff I didn’t know about the industry.” – Racheal
“The information provided at the workshop was very helpful and useful” – Christian
“I feel I have learned about the business behind acting and how to create a successful self tape.” – Ash
“As an Agent, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some really talented individuals – helping them land great professional roles and launching their careers. However, I also see how difficult it is to break into this industry. The Theatre & Film School works hard to ensure students are prepared for the professional world of Performing Arts. This exciting opportunity allowed young performers, particularly those from under-represented backgrounds, a learning pathway to help step into the profession. It’s a great chance to gain a crucial skill-set with the help of top industry insiders.”
We are happy to be able to provide fun and quality programs for young people and want to thank Hackney Council for providing the funding to do so.
