3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Warner Bros has a great trainng program whereby you do a training session once a month or so, and learn some pretty useful skills. In terms of day-to-day tasks my manager was always there to offer and provide support.

We got very busy around periods where movies were released, but it just gave a greater sense of achivement.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given plenty responsibility and was often left to my own devices to use my judgement, although guidance was always there if I needed it. I was given the go ahead to start up my own big project - which is still on-going after I left and has even left me in the position of possibly contracting for WB to aid in development of the project. Unfortunately for confidentiality purposes I can't discuss what the project was.
