Many brave emerging filmmakers submitted their under-5min videos, and four were selected, for a career surgery discussion at one of the world's leading commercial production companies, Stink.
And it was a great evening. With praise and questions, panellists gave incisive & useful insights to filmmakers. Then bespoke career advice was delivered for each filmmaker.
After the panel, everyone stayed to drink and network with the panel and with the other production companies, reps and festival producers in the audience.
Huge thanks to Stink, to each of the panellists, to the supporting organisations and of course, to all the emerging filmmakers who took part.

Thanks so much for organising the Shiny career surgery at Stink last night. ... I found being in the audience enlightening and it was just great to meet others so we can help each other out and learn.
Filmmaking always feels to me more like a craft than an industry and it can be a solitary practice. organisations like Shiny make it feel, at least for an evening, like a community.
The concept of a “career surgery” is fantastic and I hope I can enter a film next time.
Thanks so much for Tuesday night, it was a great night, met new people, had some good discussions and really glad I did it. Thanks for the support.
Loved it - such inspiring work. I would have loved a forum to give my feedback too - but then it would have gone on all night!
Great evening! Very interesting people and films x
Thanks so much Shiny for my baptism of fire.
Brilliant evening! Very interesting and loved hearing the feedback about the work. Keep going
