As part of my mentorship program with the Canadian Media Producers Association, I had the incredible opportunity this past week to attend Prime Time in Ottawa.
Prime Time is a television & film production industry conference and this year the sold out event included talks with Netflix’s Elizabeth Bradley, Canadian actor and producer Jay Baruchel, and other network executives and industry leaders.
I spent most of the weekend meeting and catching up with the other 6 people in the mentorship program, as we learned about each others’ experiences working in different cities, in different roles and on different projects!
Here’s a pic of all of us and our lovely mentorship co-ordinator Sarolta out at a fancy restaurant downtown!
I was slightly terrified to attend a conference where I knew I’d likely be the youngest (and least experienced) person in the room – but everyone was so nice, accommodating and willing to help me learn! I came back to Halifax with lots of advice, several business cards, and a few new friends in the world of film!
Prime Time was a great opportunity to network with other people in the industry and get a chance to learn more about the future of television (it’s OTT – in case you’re wondering).
Here’s some more photos from the trip/event!
