Despite the Covid-19 pandemic hitting the creative industries hard, Feyi Coker remains dedicated to pursuing his dream of working in film. He’s continued to channel his energy into creativity and, in December 2020, released a comedy on YouTube about coming out of lockdown.
When the pandemic first hit, Feyi started looking for coping strategies to help him decompartmentalise. He was determined to continue learning and he attended a one-off workshop, “How to get into the TV industry with All4Media”, organised by Prince’s Trust partner Iconic Steps.
“I had been working on various creative projects which involved liaising with industry professionals in film, sound and music and I was looking for film-related projects to get involved with. I didn’t know what to expect before attending the workshop. It turned out to be a great way of talking things through and it was nice to be able to come together as a group, have someone there to listen and to learn about other people’s coping strategies.
“The Prince’s Trust came at a pivotal time and provided me with the connections, tools and advice to get closer to pursuing my dream of working in film. To anyone considering getting involved with The Prince’s Trust, I’d definitely recommend seeing what they have to offer. You don’t know where it might take you.”
