Back At It – Placement Year So Far

I’m currently on Placement year and before I forget everything I’ve learned and end up with a blank CV I thought I’d keep a note of what I’m doing as well as posting general blog posts if I feel like writing.

My Placement is at Grapevine Digital, a film Digital Marketing, PR and Publicity agency in the heart of Shoreditch. I started off this blog a couple of years ago to write about films and reviews but I never thought I’d make a full-time career out of it and now I have which has actually worked out quite well. The actual process of finding the placement was very long and tedious but without all of the failed interviews, I wouldn’t have gained the confidence and skills to be where I am now.

I’ve been at Grapevine for almost 3 months now and I have learned and gained so much experience already, as it is a small company I’m allowed to be very hands-on in the work that I do, allowing me to experience new things which can be scary but also really rewarding.

I have so far gained skills in these areas:

  • Copywriting/Feature Writing
  • Liaising with Journalists, Agents & Influencers
  • Working on events – eg. Junkets, Premieres, Screenings
  • Live Social Media coverage for events
  • Social scheduling
  • Creating PR Status’ and Coverage Reports for both HE and Theatrical
  • Daily Reporting for the Wizarding World Franchise
  • Generating online & offline coverage for projects
  • Working with software such as Sysomos, Intelligent Media, Vuelio & Adstream
  • Expenses & VAT

Key Clients & Campaigns:

  • Warner Bros
  • Paramount
  • Entertainment One
  • Lionsgate
  • Altitude
  • Vertigo
