    Industry MentorshipGuiding Lights Mentorship Scheme
    First launched in 2006, Guiding Lights is the UK film industry’s leading mentoring programme for emerging talent, supporting upcoming filmmakers and professionals through mentoring, complemented by a range of training and networking activities. The pilot edition of ‘Feature Focus’ was established with the aim to assist in the professional development of eight writer-directors, directors and producers, and to respond to a very specific and real industry need: support for filmmakers actively making their first feature film. I was selected as one of eight mentees, and was mentored by producer Nicky Bentham over a 9 month period during which she provided invaluable industry guidance, support and advice.
