Some notes from this years Film&TV Editor Mark:

‘My time at The Stand felt more like being on the cast of a sitcom about a student-run online magazine than actually working for one. I never thought you could put things that are this fun on your CV.’

– As Film and TV Editor your most persistent task will be staying in touch with your writers, making sure they know what they’re doing and that they should be doing it. It also helps to always be thinking of and sharing new ideas for articles. Email email email!

– You’ll also have to edit these articles for little stuff like spelling and grammar, as well as big stuff like tone of voice, structure, length and whether or not it’s any good.

– Putting things online with all the requisite videos, pictures and links might sound difficult at first, but it will end up being the easiest part of your job.

-You should also probably try to watch a whole lot of film and television, if you can! Obviously you won’t be able to keep up with everything (or most things) yourself, so make sure you’re aware of what’s new and upcoming, and that your writers cover a variety of different shows and genres.
