Free TV production courses for 18- to 25-year-olds

bloombergAre you a filmmaker aged between 18 and 25 looking to break into the world of live television?

If you are unemployed, in training or education, the Bloomberg Broadcast Programme is a completely FREE fast track course that will give you the skills you need to progress in the industry.

This seven-week course offers training and hands-on experience in video production and live broadcast, through intensive workshops and working on productions at the Roundhouse. The project starts with 10 days of workshops in how to use broadcast quality camera equipment and edit using the latest software and technology in the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios. After this, your training will continue alongside gaining real experience in film production to boost your CV. You’ll get 40 hours of volunteering at Roundhouse festivals and events, including live broadcasts, promotional films and video productions.

The project will give you a thorough grounding in self-shooting and post-production, which is essential to succeed within a production company or as a freelance filmmaker.

To apply, you’ll need to have created video content yourself, but we don’t mind what software or equipment you used or how you did it. Ideally, you’ll have some experience of teamwork as well. Financial support is available to help with your travel and meal costs. Working hours will include some evenings and weekends and will require you to attend three days a week. Please note you must be able to attend all the workshops and production sessions to take part.

Find out more at our Taster Evening on Friday 3rd July. To book your place, please register your interest when you submit your application.

Deadline for applications: 9am, Monday 6th July
Interviews will take place between 10am and 5.30pm on Friday 10th July
