Hello and welcome to The Importance of Staying Earnest. The podcast where we sit down with creatives to discuss the ins and outs of making a career in the arts.
Today's episode is a discussion with Ollie Norton-Smith, a writer/director. He is here to discuss starting your own company whilst being a student and what his experiences have been since leaving Uni, both with his company, as well as an individual.
Ollie brings up some of the downsides of self-producing, the difficulties of finding your way around funding, as well as the way plans have changed since the pandemic hit.
So grab a tea or something stronger and come along as we try to find some direction in our lives...
