Event description:

If you are starring in a theatre, film or TV production that is likely to get media attention are you ready for the publicity requirements that will be involved? Do you know how to do a great interview, promote yourself and your production succinctly and tell interesting and relevant stories whilst keeping your private life private?  Even if you’ve done hundreds of interviews you may not necessarily have been doing them in a way that satisfies both journalists and your show’s producers and publicists. How much of what you say is being edited out or not run at all?  Get the insider’s take on what a journalist wants and doesn’t want from you. If you’re playing the long game with your career locally and internationally, this workshop is essential.
