Book a free career advice session with a Spotlight expert
Whether you’re just starting out or feel the need for a "refresher chat", Spotlight Mondays are an opportunity to have a 20-minute appointment with career expert Emma Dyson.
Anything is up for discussion, including photos, CVs, showreels, casting directors and agents (however, it is not possible for us to recommend agents).
This is a free service, inclusive within Spotlight membership and available only to members. Your session can be in person at Spotlight HQ, over the phone or on Skype.
About Spotlight’s career expert
Emma Dyson trained at the Guildford School of Acting. After working in other areas of the arts, she became an agent and developed a broad understanding of the relationship between the performer, management and casting process. Her six years’ experience as an agent gives her an invaluable perspective on portfolio photography, CVs and presentation. She is well placed to offer general advice and guidance to the working actor.
Feedback from Spotlight members who have used this service:
"Emma responded with warmth and empathy to my concerns. This was both reassuring and refreshing"
"Emma’s positive approach to my CV and voicereel was encouraging and this is hugely valuable for me to know that it is worth me continuing and to try and develop some other avenues that I haven’t yet i.e. getting a voiceover agent"
"I had a list of questions and got answers to them all. As well as being informative, the session was friendly and I came away feeling both motivated and reassured about the progress of my career"
"I found it very valuable to get to speak to Emma as she is very experienced in the industry and it was refreshing to hear things from an outsider for once... ie- not my agent"
