As an experienced Lighting TD and more recently as a recruiter, I offer a unique and specialist service for graduates, aspiring artists and technical directors. For me, mentoring is more than just professional advice.


My aims are:


to give guidance following the lead of the student


to inspire, motivate and unlock potential


to provide focussed, honest and unrushed feedback


to help improve skills


to build confidence


to create a plan to help the student to achieve their goals


Who am I?


My name is Tessa Mapp. I have 10+ years experience as a professional artist, lecturer and Mentor and more recently a recruiter at Aardman Animations.

As a mother of two, running a mentoring business from my home gives flexibility, which I can pass on to you. For example, you choose the method of contact, skype/facetime, email, blog, whichever you prefer and as often as you need. Additionally my services are available to international students, I welcome talent from different time zones across the globe.

I work by an hourly rate giving students the rare opportunity to tailor mentoring to their needs and budget.

Please take a look at my suggested mentoring packages on my prices page.
