Elinor Coleman - Artist Testimonial
ELINOR COLEMAN (THEATRE MAKER), TELLS US WHY SHE THINKS SHOOT FESTIVAL IS 'WICKED' AND WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER APPLYING.
Shoot Festival is wicked!!
When I applied last year I was a little bit terrified, because I'd never performed any of my own work before. But I'm so glad I did.
The Shoot team are the most supportive bunch of wonders (just don't let Paul near a sound desk*), and the festival itself has such a warm and welcoming buzz. Its a great place to test new work.
Taking that first step has led me onto much more opportunity in the area. After winning the Artist Development Award at Shoot Festival 2016 I went on to secure some Arts Council England funding to develop my play further, and I am now on the Birmingham REP's Artist Development Scheme: Foundry, as a theatre maker.
And I put it all down to pressing send on that Shoot Application. I recommend you do the same... whats the worst that could happen?
*so, I screwed up the one cue I had (Paul)
