This is your time to shine. Be yourself and be proud of your best work and achievements. Think about it as an elevator pitch, keep it short and make sure you leave an impression. Come up with a great way to present yourself and your work. For example, bring a portfolio with your best work that suits the short time span. Create a short introduction or showreel or a quick way to summarise your experience.
Most importantly, make sure you leave enough time to answer and ask questions.
Leave something behind
It’s good to leave something behind that makes it easy for agencies to remember you. It can be as simple as a copy of your CV with a photo or a signature piece of your work.
