Beyond Brontës Podcast Trailer
"Lights! Camera! Action!" But how?  The world of the screen industries can appear mysterious and confusing, especially when you are trying to start a career in them.  How do people start their careers? How do you network? Is freelancing scary? How do you clear a beach, deal with the talent sleeping in, or stop people from freezing on an early morning shoot? Recorded entirely remotely in a caravan in Leeds, the fortnightly Beyond Brontës podcast aims to answer all these questions and more by asking people who work in the industry, mainly focusing on those that started or currently work outside of London.  From LA and Toronto, to Leeds, Newcastle, and Scarborough, we talk about the perceived and real barriers people face, and discover that this industry needs you.
