RTS Isle of Man attended a careers exhibition in Ballakermeen High School, Douglas, in late January, talking to more than 40 students interested in working in television, both in front and behind the camera.
Sam Bowers from RTS Futures and film-maker and lecturer Athena Mendis discussed the opportunities available to young people in the media industry.
Mendis teaches production and screenwriting at Queen Mary University of London’s Department of Film Studies Department. She has made short films and documentaries, which have been screened at film festivals around the world.
She is currently in pre-production on two short films, Losing Grace and Daughter and in post-production with a documentary on the Greek diaspora of North London.
