The screen industries are visual and when an employer or client is looking to take you on in a role they will often want to see a portfolio of your work. It can be difficult to start thinking about what to include and advice varies from person to person!

Essentially a portfolio should show your passion, your skills and intrigue a potential employer to pick up the phone.

Join us at this session to hear from a cross-section of industry professionals who look at portfolios on a regular basis, hear from them about what captures their attention, what elements go into crafting a portfolio which captures their attention for Film & TV, Games, VFX & Animation and the Art Department.
