'I had had an interest in the TV and film industry for a while when I found out that the Production Guild were running a short course, which I was delighted to secure a place on. The tutor and guest speakers provided valuable advice and different ways to break into the industry including CV tips. Following on from the course I was able to get my first production role. I am excited to have started my career within the industry and I am enjoying every moment. Thank you, Production Guild, for this great opportunity.'
