With the Film sector in hibernation, many film freelancers are unsure what other work they could do, and how they are going to make ends meet. First aid for film freelancers is a series of four standalone workshops that are designed to provide information and practical advice from screen sector and business experts.

In this workshop delivered by Mission Accomplished, we are focussing on 'me'. 

The goal of the session is to provide participants with a framework to create a marketing plan for their personal brand.

Part One: Building brand 'me'

  • What skills do I have?
  • Where do I want to get to?
  • What does success mean to me?
  • Developing your own personal brand

Part Two: Articulating brand 'me'

  • Identifying clients you want to be working with
  • Why do my clients hire me?
  • Creating my marketing materials
