RTS bursary students

The Trade Desk's Dave Castell gives advice on how to pursue creative and technology focused roles in the industry

Currently, he is the general manager of inventory and partnerships at global technology company The Trade Desk and took time out of his bustling schedule to talk to our bursary students.

With two strands to the RTS Bursary scheme – TV Production/Broadcast Journalism and Technology – Castell was a good choice of speaker to engage with both the creative and technically minded students.

RTS bursary students: What happened next?

I started at Norwich University of the Arts in 2014, after being out of education for several years. I was battling with mental-health issues and felt unsure about which direction I wanted to steer my life.

Screenwriting had always been a secret passion, so I picked a course that would allow me to bring my characters to life. I applied to the RTS Bursary on a whim. I am so thankful that I did.
