Besides the fun stuff, events like these are great for connecting with other creatives in an environment that allows you to let your hair down. As you continue to work in film/digital media/fashion/music/art, you'll realise that London is so small - in a good way. Walking into an event and seeing familiar faces can be comforting, and last night, this was the case. Through mutual colleagues and friends you meet more mutuals and friends, which can organically lead to more creative experimentation - much more effective than a boardroom meeting - and the best bit is, if you want to simply just have a good time and forget about work, you can.
Above everything, the most important thing is to work on yourself - healing your mind and body, fine-tuning your craft, keeping your creative identity and maintaining a warm energy all add up to being prepared and getting the most out of parties like these.
