Film Trainees

Film Trainees


As part of the Swale Film Festival, the organisers are offering a great opportunity to the young people in Kent.

If you have an interest in film or television or if you’re specifically into photography, writing, make up, costume, design or art, then this course is for YOU!

You don’t need any previous experience; you just have to be interested in any of the above! It’s completely free, no catch so why not try out this exciting 2 days media workshop?!

The workshops are for media students who have already trained or are studying film, television and media and will be looking for future employment in film and TV production.

Day one August 6th from 10.00am to 4.00pm at Castle Connections in Queenborough, Sheppey

The workshop will include making a short film with the guidance from professional technicians.  You will look in detail about pre-production, filming, working with various cameras, green screen, sound equipment and lighting. You will have a chance to look at improving your knowledge through better planning, and increasing your technical skills.

Day two August 20th from 10.00am to 4.00pm at The Avenue Theatre, Sittingbourne

The workshop will include introduction to your future employment using the skills you have. Kent Media Centre members will give you the opportunity to talk to freelance technicians who are working in the industry. You will have a chance to have one-to-one mentoring from industry professionals who will look at ways of improving your job opportunities. This workshop will help pursue your own career with information from the UK’s media and entertainment trade union BECTU and Skillset, the Creative Industries’ Sector Skills Council.

Booking is limited, so what are you waiting for? Book now if you’re aged between 17 and 26 before 30th July 2012!
