Architects into Art Department in Film - Applications now closed
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
Are you a qualified architect or architect graduate looking to transfer your skills into the film industry?
We are launching a FREE programme, supported by the ScreenSkills Film Skills Fund with contributions from UK film productions, to help you use your existing skills in a new, creative environment.
This 5 part modular Zoom programme will examine the Art Department on feature films and large scale tv dramas. We will look at:
how the industry works - what you need to know
how to get onto a production
how you can transfer your skills successfully
different drawing software packages
how your surveying and drawing skills can be adapted for use on different productions (in particular different genres and different time periods)
At the end of the 5 weeks, all participants will be more knowledgeable and ready to transfer into the film/ tv drama industries. Some will also be offered paid placements on film productions shooting in the UK between January and May 2024.
Who can apply:You are eligible to apply if you are trying to break into the film industry and have a background in architecture. Successful participants will be selected via an application and interview process.
