  3. 3. What do I need to do to be a success? - Be organised. If you’re not naturally good at being organised you’ll need to learn how to be more organised. - Be proactive. Don’t wait around waiting to find out what to do next, take the initiative! Ask a tutor, ask a team member, look through what you’re meant to be doing. - Be good to others. Treat people how you want to be treated. A key skill to being successful in TV is networking, and making the right connections. Learn to work well with other people now. - Be punctual. If you’re late turning up to work on a TV show, you’re fired. Simple. - Get work in on time. The rules with BTECs are really strict; if you don’t get your work in by the deadline you fail the unit, and therefore the whole course (unless you have extenuating circumstances). - Back it up. Computers crash. Hard drives break. USB sticks snap. If this happens you will not get an extension on your work. Back it up online using Dropbox, google docs, mega and make sure you save your work to USB/external hard drive as well. Data isn’t safe unless its backed up 3 times. - Respect the tech. Or you don’t get to use it, full stop.
