In partnership with Creative Lancashire, we’re presenting a series of four Screen Opps events across Lancashire over autumn.
This session, Surviving and Thriving as a Freelancer, sees ushost a panel discussion with 3 North-West based screen professionals who have worked across international music video, broadcast, writing & screen-art. They’ve all seen the hard times and the good, and will talk about different stages, aspects, nurturing, and creative choices their careers have so far seen.
To start the event off, our ‘Show & Tell’ sessions hosts 3-5 short pieces of recently produced or work in progress, to get feedback from a critically and creatively engaged group of professionals and a test audience.
