    It's in the SW – SOUTH WEST (UK): precisely, Poole, Dorset, at the RNLI centre. It's all on the website. But I'll update as well on this post in case anyone else finds confusing x

  2. James says:

    Apologies. Just realised being held in Poole (read the other blog).

    Is there a chance there will be a similar event being held near London way? I'm trying to get a short film together, and this event seemed like the ideal place to network.


  3. Lucy V says:

    Doubtful I should think – the event is sponsored by SW Media peeps and arranged by the lovely local Rosie Jones! Plus London does have lots of networking events – are you a member of Shooting People, Talent Circle, Icewhole etc? They often advertise networking events on those sites. Hope that helps!

  4. James says:

    Many thanks. I have been a member to all three at various points, but financial whatnots and my day job have split my time. But thanks again.

    I'll be there too! Jeez!
