VBL Silver Unit 1 Part D

Research and Career Pathways in the arts

I didn’t get chance to do this section because of the school closures, my teacher being absent because she was self-isolating, and me having to self-isolate. But I did reflect on what I WANTED to do.

  • I wanted to do a case study of the directors of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulckuk.
  • I wanted to do a career map of the directors above
  • I wanted to interview someone who works in movie making and I did do some research and came up with some questions
  • I was going to write a blog about everything I found out.

The interview Questions I was going to ask:

General Questions:

1.  What advice would you give to someone who wishes to be part of your industry?
