Film Skills Brum Spotlight: Matching Talent to Opportunities: £1,500 Apprentice Wage Bursaries

Birmingham Film Talent Showcase

The media / film making world is full of roller coaster rides to do with time, resources, money and talent to name just a few of the all-consuming elements.

Creative Alliance have been working tirelessly with industry professionals to train and enable talented young people to get a foot in the door the creative industries.

Eighteen of them have been on an intensive four-month training programme with Martin Simms, Dan Wilson and other industry professionals along with support from The Producers’ Forum. They have learnt a range of production, management and technical skills and understand how to behave on professional jobs.

One of the many film workshops held at Creative Alliance in the Custard Factory

A number of these young people are currently available for a twelve-month apprenticeship. They all come with a £1,500 bursary toward them working with you plus ongoing support from Creative Alliance.

They could be employed as Production Assistants, Post-Production Assistants, Digital Marketing Assistants or in General Assistant roles.

Young filmmakers get a chance to tell the stories important to them

So, it may be that the right young person is just around the corner to help steady the roller coaster ride at least in one way in the near future.
