December Event
For our final event this year, we had a behind the scenes look at Cardiff's local television station, Made in Cardiff.  We enjoyed an interesting presentation by the station's General Manager, Daniel Glyn, and then briefly watched a live broadcast from the company's television studio.
 

RTS Wales Web Address
We have arranged for our home page to be accessed using the URL rts.org.uk/cymru .  You are still able to use rts.org.uk/wales , of course.  Bookmark them both!
Update:  Following on from that, we will shortly be discontinuing the rts.org.uk/latest-news-rts-wales address, so if you have that as a bookmark, it will cease to work.

"It's a shame that Career advisors in schools in Wales are not aware of the amazing opportunities and job prospects in the film and TV industry, from Hair Make-up & Costume to scaffolding, animation, SFX and sound to name a few!"
(Claire Pritchard-Jones, commenting on our Facebook page.)
 

Meet The Makers

Daniel Cripps attended our Meet the Makers event last year when he was just starting out in the industry.  He got talking to Sam Grace, Director of Programmes at Boomerang at the event, and after sending him his CV got a job with the company.
It’s a good testimony to the way the RTS can help new entrants.
