Broadcast are holding a TV Drama Forum at the end of March, "bringing together a wealth of talent and expertise to inform and inspire". It certainly looks like a great line-up (and networking nirvana) as the leading UK TV writers, producers and execs are all going to pitch in with their pearly pearls.
Here's the catch. It's a whopping £449 + VAT to attend. Total: £527.58. Yikes-erama. True, it's like having all the relevant movers & shakers in one room for just one day but that registration fee is going to be a struggle for any jobbing freelancer who would love to attend (i.e me & you).
Not sure Skillset would cover this one (it's not really a training course, more a forum/conference thingy, but would certainly be useful for any freelancer to attend). Anyway, if you want the full skinny, check out the TV Drama Forum website.
On a completely different note. I'll be shuffling my feet in the 5k Bournemouth Bay Run at the end of March, y'know, to actually get out of the house once in a while and do something resembling excercise. It's all in aid of the British Heart Foundation, a good cause, so if you'd like to sponsor me a few pennies or a couple of quid (literally, just whatever; a couple of people have been far too generous already), then click on my fundraising page and follow the easy peasy lemon squeasy instructions. I thang-ew.
