56 - Getting a Job in the Film Industry - Interview with Colin Wallace

Robin met Colin at Insomnia62. Colin was at the SpecialEffect community party and wearing a bear kigu. Naturally Robin spoke with him almost immediately to find out who he was and what he was doing dressed as a bear.

4 weeks later and here's Colin Wallace to talk about his career in the film industry. 

Whether you want to work in film, or any sector, and are looking for a way in, Colin has loads to share about networking, meeting the right people, helping out, gaining experience and making your own luck.

Also the importance of learning everyone's tea/coffee orders.

Lots to learn and put into action in this week's episode of The Coaching for Geeks Show!
