EP5 | Drama school, agents and being your own advocate (with Lewis Mackenzie)

Hello and welcome to The Importance of Staying Earnest. The podcast where we sit down with creatives to discuss the ins and outs of making a career in the arts.

Today's episode is a discussion with Lewis Mackenzie, an actor MA student on a broadcast journalism course. He is here to talk about his experiences at drama school, what it's like once you leave, and why he enrolled on his MA course.

Lewis brings up the importance of being your own advocate and why it's so important to do your research when finding and signing with an agent, as well as providing an insight into drama schools and his experience while he was a student.

We also take a little trip down memory lane as we chat about some of the productions we did together in sixth form, simpler times!

So grab a tea or something stronger and come along as we try to find some direction in our lives...

About the Podcast

The Importance of Staying Earnest
The trenches of navigating the creative industries
We're both trying to make our way into creative careers, and we've often discussed with each other what we're going through and how we're doing. As such, we also have a bunch of friends going through the same things. So we're sitting down with a bunch of them. Directors, actors, producers, musicians; all of which are trying to fight their way to doing what they love as a career. We know it's not all sunshine and rainbows and we think it's worth talking about (not to mention there is the occasional piece of sunshine and/or rainbow that's worth celebrating!). So grab a tea (or something stronger) and come along for the ride!
