Forging connections!

Forging connections!

We recently hosted a dynamic networking event at the Performance Lab that brought together an inspiring mix of creative minds from our BA (Hons) Acting and Performance, BA (Hons) Film & Media Production, and MA Filmmaking programmes. This event was a remarkable success, with the exchange of ideas, the forging of connections, and the promise of exciting collaborative projects. 

 

The evening showcased an impressive range of film projects set to unfold in the coming year. Our filmmakers, brimming with ingenuity, presented diverse film concepts. From uproarious comedies to heartfelt dramas, spine-tingling thrillers to enigmatic dark films, the event was a testament to creative storytelling.

 

What made the evening particularly special was the lively mingling of actors and filmmakers. Students from various programmes connected, shared ideas, and developed new friendships. The potential for collaborative ventures was tangible, and many exchanged contact details, setting the stage for future partnerships.

 

We're excited to reintroduce our Acting and Performance Online Community. This thriving platform acts as a central hub for casting calls, job opportunities, and industry discussions. We encourage all attendees to join, transforming it into a primary resource for actors, filmmakers, and industry enthusiasts at Hallam. Our aim is to nurture collaboration and communication that extends beyond the event.

 

The networking event's success underscores the incredible talent and potential within our university. It hints at the beginning of something extraordinary. The projects that will emerge from these connections will not only shape your academic journey but also lay the foundation for promising careers in the world of film and performance.

 

As we move forward, let's maintain the creative sparks and continue supporting one another. The journey has just begun, and we can't wait to witness the incredible stories you'll bring to life, the characters you'll embody, and the worlds you'll create.

 

Thanks to everyone who attended. Together, let's shape the future of filmmaking and performance.

 

 

Stay creative, stay connected, and stay inspired.
