Three new training courses, aimed at professionals in the film industry, have been launched by Sgil Cymru.
Each course is designed specifically for people looking to step up to a new role, either in the short term or after gaining more experience in their current grade.
Applications are now open for these intensive programmes:
October 31st – November 11th
November 21st – December 3rd
January 16th – January 27th
Whilst the training is delivered from Sgil Cymru’s base at Pinewood Studio Wales, applications are welcomed from professionals from all over the UK.
The first course is a two-week intensive programme for aspiring script supervisors, starting October 31st. Ten trainees will be tutored by Ceri Evans-Cooper, whose numerous credits over thirty years as a script supervisor include films in the Harry Potter franchise, the Matt Damon action thriller Green Zone and Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom.
These programmes are supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, with BFI’s Film Forever National Lottery funds. Each course costs just £350 to attend. Bursaries may be available.
