- It sounds boring, but if you don't have an immediate in, I'd recommend starting a spreadsheet (urgh, I know!). Make a list of as many production companies in London into it (google: london commercial production company or london post production company, depending on your interest) then either get the contact details of the office manager, head runner or head of research or development. If they're not on the site, just call and politely ask for an email. Many receptionists will block you with a generic email, but some won't.Every lead is worth a shot. Everyone's looking for fresh blood, so don't take no answer to mean you're not wanted. it's all about timing. Keep track of who you've hit up, how and when. If you don't hear anything for a month, try again!If you reach out over email, keep your message simple and short. Accompany it with an easy to read 1 page CV together with your experience and skills / proficiencies (mac / pc, adobe, microsoft etc). It's horrible to say it, but your education is garnish. They won't want you to contribute at first. They'll just need a willing capable pair of hands, ready to catch anything that's thrown at them.
