Screen Manchester and Picture Shop launch new post-production training scheme

Screen Manchester has opened applications for its new post-production training scheme in partnership with renowned posthouse, Picture Shop.

The aim of the initiative is to provide on the job training in junior roles for the next generation of talent for the Post Production Sector. It follows on from the success of previous Screen Manchester production development trainee schemes.

With the support and assistance of Screen Alliance North, with National Lottery Funding and support from the BFI, the post-production trainee scheme will be a hands-on experience designed to build skills and open up this rarified world to a wider talent pool. It will commence with a skills training day and the team are looking to find 25 applicants who live in the Manchester area interested in runner roles within facilities that can lead to experience of the broader post production process.

Paul Austin of Picture Shop said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Screen Manchester. Picture Shop looks for people with all manner of skills. So if you consider yourself to be organised, creative and with strong vision, good communication skills, an attention to detail and the ability to multi-task you might just be someone who could find a successful and sustained career somewhere across the post-production portfolio. Please get in touch.”

Elli Metcalfe of Screen Manchester/Screen Alliance North added: “Successful applicants will learn that every image we see on screen is made of the sum of many skills, like a complex digital jigsaw. When the actors and the crew on set wrap filming a whole new process starts. Without the range of skills and talent post production brings together none of the work done on any drama, documentary, advert or entertainment show would ever be pieced together and made to look and sound perfect. We are in the business of finding new talent and future proofing the film and TV Industry in Manchester.”
