As mentioned in the previous post, linkedin is designed to keep in touch with others in your chosen profession. With this in mind I went searching for people I could perhaps learn from, or perhaps gain work through.
The simplest thing to do in linked in is to search through those who list their job as director. You do have to be careful here though as there are many different types of director that have little to do with film making. Below are a list of the people I added and contacted on Linked in.
Richard wood – Richard is a local freelancer who has worked in the industry for over 1 years. He has worked as an AD for both television productions and feature films.
Peter woodbridge – Peter has worked on a range of digital media projects for companies and organisations including the BBC, BT, HEFCE, United Nations, NHS and many more.
