Get Your Break! Television Presenters asks sixteen young high-profile presenters what it takes to get your break in Australian TV. In conversational Q&A interviews, reporters and presenters from subscription and free-to-air television tell you what the job involves both on and off screen and what the executive producers of those programs/channels look for in presenting talent. Every aspect of the television industry is explored -- from what makes an audition-worthy showreel to what to expect in an audition; from voiceover and on camera skills, to interviewing techniques, tips for dealing with nerves, and advice for live TV and sharing the screen with a co-host. To round out the collection, there are also interviews with talent agents, executive producers and network heads of programming. This is a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of the Australian television industry and learn what it really takes to get your break!
