Careers Café
Film and media was the topic of this Careers Café which was hosted by Jonny Paterson (98-06). Jonny outlined his career path from Merchiston to Los Angeles where he works as a film producer. He was incredibly interesting and knowledgeable on the different roles within, and different routes in to the movie industry, and what he recommends those with related aspirations should be doing whilst still at school. The key messages were collaborate, network, and make content! It is obvious that Jonny has achieved so much in the relatively short time since he left Merchiston, and he was clear about the role which agencies such as the Scottish Film Talent Network can play in supporting others to do likewise. We are very grateful to Jonny for taking the time to speak with the pupils. You can find out more about him and his work at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5131740/, http://www.facebook.com/halfwaythemovie and www.halfwayfilm.com/filmmaker/jonny-paterson/.
