On June 6th, media, film and drama students from year 9 and 12 at Longfield Academy were lucky enough to meet film and television producer Matthew Bird. Matthew has produced a number of films and TV shows, including ‘Fortitude,’ ‘The Musketeers,’ and ‘Death in Paradise.’
He delivered a knowledgeable and thorough talk about the industry in which a number of students are interested, and engaged in a lot of discussion, one on one, with some of our more eager students. He gave the group of 40 students a really clear indication of the wide variety of jobs available within in the film and television industry. Many students went away with their eyes opened to the opportunities that are available to them, as well as how to go about applying for a job in that industry.
