In your first two years of working in the screen industry we offer early career support with Crew Academy membership. To become a full Crew Academy member, you will be 18 or over, live in the North East and have either attended a Crew Academy Bootcamp or have at least 1 paid professional credit. You will also be available to work and ideally be able to drive with access to your own transport. Our Crew Academy is suitable for adults who are in the early years of working in the industry or those already working and looking to step into new roles. Members of the Academy will receive CV surgeries and one-to-one mentoring and advice. We will also help you find entry runner positions and paid trainee work.

It was great to see how all the departments collaborated in order to make the finished product, ensuring it all runs smoothly, and that the doors aren’t necessarily closed if you want to work in other departments. I’ve learnt that putting yourself out there, networking and getting involved are so valuable. You don’t have to go to uni or work/move down south for opportunities in this field.

It was really interesting to see, meet and hear from everyone about their journeys, their different roles, and what they do. The advice was invaluable.

I was unsure how today would turn out, but it’s been amazing! All departments were so interesting to listen to and all really knowledgeable and interesting. I’m so glad I came as I enjoyed it thoroughly.
