My First Job in Film held a nationwide Video CV competition, whereby entrants made a video CV no longer that 90 seconds, in order to win one year’s worth of mentoring. The winner was decided by which video got the most ‘likes’ on My First Job in Film’s Facebook page. I won.
Having only found out about the competition 3 weeks in, I quickly shot and edited my entry and uploaded it to My First Job in Film’s Facebook page to start reeling in the votes.
After launching my own marketing and social media crusade, I won the competition with 425 votes within 12 days and had 180 more votes than the entry in second place.
My entry gained support from Mark Millar (Kick Ass, writer), Dame Kelly Holmes (two times Olympic gold medallist) and J H Williams III (illustrator). I was also featured in the Newham Recorder newspaper.
