Spotlight in town
28 February 2014
Spotlight, the online casting database, brought its experts to Manchester for a full week of workshops, career advice, showreel sessions, a monologue slam, and networking. Jamie Briers, Equity's north west organiser, was there along with many other Equity members from Liverpool, Manchester, the Wirral, and other local areas. Jamie gave a talk on why it's a great idea to be a member of Equity - together we're stronger! Jamie's presence helped raise the profile of Liverpool branch in the region - at least one Spotlight member at the pop-up event asked to join the Liverpool & District General branch. Other seminars included agents and casting directors. Everyone seemed to think it was a terrific event, useful and worthwhile, and a great resource that many of us pay for through Spotlight membership. It was great that Spotlight's staff and experts got out of the capital and into the region. We're hoping this will become at least an annual event and that it might come to Liverpool too. What do you think? Perhaps one to talk about at the next meeting of the Liverpool & District Branch of Equity at the Bridewell, Wednesday, March 5, 6.30pm.
