Life after Raindance Film School is where the action¬†really starts…


Congratulations, you’ve graduated from Raindance Film School! What next? The next phase in your career can begin in many ways. Meet with our founder, Elliot Grove, for a consultation on who you might approach for work or creative collaborations. We can also help by making you aware of various industry job placement and job search schemes. These could get you in front of the right people at the right time.

Happenstance, hard work, and consistent networking are always keys to new opportunities, so we always encourage our current and former students to keep building connections with people. Be authentic with and interested in the organisations you approach about potential work.

Alumni reunions

As the UK transitions out of COVID-19 restrictions, we hope to start new meetings and events in London for Raindance alumni to reconnect and share their post-Raindance success stories. (This does not mean celebrities will be present.) Watch this space!
