Getting face-to-face time with a TV Producer with our experience is practically impossible - but thanks to the TV Producers at The Presenter Studio we are changing that.
We make TV programmes, and it’s our job to hire and work with presenters. So we know what producers want and what you need to do to succeed.
We’ve got over 20 years experience, and have worked in all the main TV genres (entertainment, childrens, features, documentaries and news) with all different types of presenters – from chefs to entertainment presenters, to interior designers, to former pop-stars to Olympic athletes.
1- A Private Career Consultation - a two-hour sit-down session in a central London location with a top TV Producer.
2 - A Practical Consultation – a two hour session that is more of a coaching session - perfect for screen-test preparation, or if you need to work on something specific. We don’t hire a studio or crew to keep the cost down, so instead we’ll meet you in an informal setting where we can give you career advice but also get you up and work with you.
The consultations are suited to anyone from complete beginners to more established names. And it’s not just for ‘presenters’ – we love meeting up with ‘experts’ – chefs, to interior designers to doctors.
Every presenter needs a USP – a unique selling point. It’s what we call your ‘brand’. We’ll explore this with you and help you understand how important it is to start thinking about yourself in a certain way.
Your personality is key to your success. So we’ll chat to you about how to think about yourself as a ‘unique personality’ rather than a generic TV presenter. It’s where 99% of other people go wrong and with our help you’ll soon understand why.
You also need to understand your market – the genre of TV you want to work in. It’s important to realise that each genre in TV works very differently to the next, so the advise we’ll give you will really depend on what type of TV you want to work in or what we think you are best suited to. Sounds confusing? Don’t worry – it’s what the session is for!
If you have promotional material we can give you feedback – from photos to showreels to youtube videos. We’ll also discuss the pitfalls of ‘presenter showreels’ and help you understand why 99% of presenter showreels out there will not get you work in mainstream TV.
And we’ll reveal our secrets about how to get yourself some really great work. We’ll also discuss potential avenues for you to go down from agents to TV channels that you should be contacting. And we’ll come up with a plan to help you progress your career.
We’ll also give you our thoughts on you as a potential talent and focus on what we think are your selling points and what potentially are your weak spots.
This is also a really creative session where we’ll explore your potential as much as we can – people have launched businesses, had programme ideas commissioned, met up with agents, launched careers - you name it off the back of meeting us. We want to see you doing well, so who knows where this session will take you!
