10 Steps to Becoming a TV Expert: Step 6
Step 6: Join clubs, associations & networking groups that are relevant to your area of expertise and make sure you’re on their list of experts who are happy to be contacted by the media. Here's why. When I was working at L!VETV, I was asked to develop & produce the pilot for 'Bouncy Weather', a weather forecast which featured a dwarf on a trampoline infront of a weather map (don't ask!). Anyway, my first port of call was The Restricted Growth Association. I explained what we were going to do and they put me in touch with Willow Management, a management agency that represents short actors. And as a result we found and hired the lovely Rusty Goffe. Enough said.
