Christopher Calum Davies
Production: Un Bore Mercher / Keeping Faith
“My friends and I always had an interest in the industry & we would make short films together. Living in a rural community, I didn’t know really where to start with regards to accessing opportunities in the industry. I’m naturally a very nervous and shy person and I wasn’t very confident before I went on the programme.
Foot in the Door has:
- Alleviated my concerns about being on-set.
- Taught me set etiquette and health and safety requirements.
- Paid for my accommodation, transport and food, which gave me peace of mind to get cracking with work without worrying about the financial aspects.
- Boosted my confidence, improved my communication skills, and made me feel that I could go on and do something positive in the industry.
“Since taking part in Foot in the Door, I have secured paid work on productions including Netflix’s Sex Education. Early in 2020, I got an unconditional offer at the University of South Wales to study a BA in Film Production, and I’ll start in September 2020.”
“I would never have had this opportunity without Foot in the Door. It’s given me the confidence that I can do it and I can go ahead and apply for these opportunities in the film and TV industry.”
