How to make your CV stand out – in a good way!


The problem: Your prospective employer is looking for particular skills that a runner needs to fit in with the team.

Before they will invest in booking you, your CV has to really show why you’re the right choice.

Your challenge as a Runner is not that you probably have little or no working experience on a professional film shoot.

It’s that you don’t know what those particular skills they’re looking for are, and how to communicate them.


Imagine:  You’re buying a Producer a coffee, and they’re going to give you an hour of their time.

You can ask them about exactly what they’e looking for in a runner.

They’d tell you how to impress them with your skills, even if you haven’t got much experience. You’d learn how to get them to trust you on their production. Sounds impossible?
