The 9 month program will support professional development that responds to a very specific and real industry need: to develop and provide support for British East Asians working in the screen industry. Alongside the mentoring, participants will benefit from a number of complementary industry training and networking events.
Who is it for?
British East Asian Writers and directors who come from various backgrounds [film, television, advertising, theatre, literature and games] and want to advance their skills or transition into a screen based medium. e.g. playwright who needs help entering the television industry, or a screenwriter who wants to transition into writing for games, or a mid-level television writer who needs support transitioning to prime time television, a director looking to build on their first shorts or make their their first feature film. They are interested to hear from writers and directors from different skills levels – each participant will be bespoke matched to the most suitable mentor given their skills and needs.
