That’s why we’re super thrilled about this new opportunity to get just that: mentorship and a successful launch for those who dare to put themselves out there. Samsung has teamed up with four massively talented people from the fields of film, food, music and photography, and they’re giving aspiring creatives in the UK and Republic of Ireland the chance to be mentored by them, get their hands on some of Samsung’s latest tech and even produce a Sky 1 HD series about their launch. They’re calling it Launching People, and we’re hoping one of those people is you. [Read more...]
