Training Opportunity for would-be documentary makers in the Midlands
First Light and The Grierson Trust are working in partnership to offer free places to a diverse range of 18 – 25 year olds to attend a specially formulated training course that will concentrate on documentary filmmaking for new entrants.
The training course, which will take place in Birmingham at the end of May, will ensure that participants have a comprehensive introduction to the genre. There will also be information, advice and careers guidance for those all important next steps.
The organisations are looking to nurture enthusiastic, committed young people with a fresh take on documentary filmmaking and are particularly interested in hearing from young people whose views are not currently being reflected on the screen.
