No, I haven’t got Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but I have just been accepted as a full member of the Institute of Broadcast Sound.
It looked like an interesting organisation so I applied to join as an Associate Member (you need to know someone to be a Full Member but that requirement was waived due to my CV which was rather nice of them). In addition to it looking interesting I thought it might help in my hunt for a job back in the UK.
A week or so before Christmas I got this in the post, all very posh and official. It’s nice to get recognition for ones work but even more so from your peers (especially if they’re random strangers).
Only just getting a handle on what the IBS do but it really does sound like a good thing, a nice sense of let’s all get together and support each other, sort of like a more serious version of Twitter in that regard.
The most fun thing is yet to come as I get to put some letters after my name on credits, nothing like a bit of shameless ego boosting or self promotion.
