Admission Price: Free to attend but places must be booked in advance
Simon Moorhead, award winning film and television producer with credits such as Dave McKean's Luna (2014), Neil Gaiman's Mirromask (2005) and Ghostwatch Live (2001), will talk to students at City about his early career and his experience working with the BBC, ITV and The Jim Henson Company.
He will reflect on how the film and TV industry has changed over the years and where things are headed, offer some myth-busting and advice on the harsh reality for new entrants, and advice on what to avoid and what to pursue.
Finally, he will talk about his latest podcast series, The Other 1%, for which he is openly accepting submissions, with an invitation to City students to submit a 10-20 minute monologue that has a 'paranormal' edge.

Simon will be on hand to offer advice and take questions from students after his talk. All are welcome, and a range of snacks and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available.
