BCTV film mentorship programme 2017: Apply

Posted on 18 October 2016

Do you have an eye for great cinematography? Can you tell a story through video? Is your film-making innovative?

Breakin’ Convention is looking for the next generation of film-makers from around the UK to take part in our third BCTV mentorship programme alongside our 2017 national tour in the following cities: London, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Norwich, Southampton, Salford, Leicester, Blackpool, Brighton and Birmingham.

As part of the opportunity selected emerging film-makers will receive training and mentorship as well as produce engaging video content for BCTV.

We want to hear from innovative, emerging film-makers from each of our tour destinations with an understanding of hip hop culture to tell unique stories and promote the positive aspect of hip hop to the rest of the world. We want film-makers who can contribute to the vision of BCTV.

If you are selected as one of our film-makers you will be invited to our two-day BCTV Film-Makers training session in London where you will learn more about Breakin’ Convention, your role as well as taking part in a range of sessions delivered by experienced film-makers and industry specialists. Our mentor will also spend a day with you in your hometown focussing on film-making techniques and skills specific to your needs or knowledge gaps.

Film-makers will work closely with Breakin’ Convention, our mentor and their local venues to create and follow briefs to document the festival as it comes to your city. You will be expected to make a minimum of two short films which will be uploaded to our channel. You will create a highlight film of the Breakin’ Convention Festival in your city and at least one other film which you will be responsible for conceptualising, writing a proposal and treatment and producing.

Some participants from the first BCTV Mentorship Programme have gone on to form our core BCTV Team receiving regular commissions including work across the UK, Germany for Battle of the Year and our forthcoming USA Tour.
