Share This Article:
Want to get into TV? You’re in luck - booking is now open for BAFTA’s Generation Next, two day-long events dedicated to inspiring and developing the careers of up-and-coming television professionals. The Generation Next forums will offer masterclasses, panel discussions and Q&A’s aimed at giving participants an insight into the different roles in television production. Those attending will also gain practical advice about entering and working in the industry, and take part in networking opportunities that will give them the chance to make vital professional contacts. Generation Next is open to those working in, or passionate about forging a career in the industry, including students, runners, researchers, assistant producers or those working in a junior role across technical, craft, creative and business areas. The events will be held on Friday 9th May in London (at BAFTA’s headquarters, 195 Piccadilly) and Friday 16th May at Media City in Salford. The Salford event is aimed at students and entry level talent who are seriously interested in a career in the television industry. Through sessions covering topics such as production management, crew and digital content, they will learn how departments work together, and the skills required to succeed. The London event is aimed at individuals who have already worked for one or two years in production or broadcast roles and are looking to build on their existing experience. The sessions will be longer and are designed to be more practical and interactive. Anne Morrison, Deputy Chair of BAFTA, and Chair of the BAFTA Learning and Events Committee said, “BAFTA is proud to support both new and developing talent through our learning programme. Following the success of the first event last year, Generation Next has become an integral part of the way in which we assist people from all backgrounds to enter and progress in television. The networking element is an especially important way of helping budding professionals to make the connections they need to take the next step in their careers.” To book tickets for BAFTA TV Forum: Generation Next in Salford or London, go to bit.ly/Generationnext.
