Life in Sound: A freelancers perspective on how to make what you love, a profession.
During my lecture/presentation/workshop I will share my experiences as a freelance sound artist while giving practical guidance and perspectives on where to find sound and music related work, how to chase up projects, design your website & CV as well as sharing unusual stories from my freelance career. Most and foremost it will be about motivation on how to make the most out of the DMSA course and on how to make what you love a profession, not only after graduation, but also now, whilst still being at university.
Note: In case the students are willing to share their existing CVs and websites, it would be a great chance for discussion and exchange of ideas on how to adjust/improve them, based on their niche and their aspirations.
