BBG Junior Program has had two 6-month editions in which participants have been learning more of filmmaking by attending different lectures, visits to multiple production houses and working part-time as interns with the Gang. In total 19 participants have started the program and 16 graduated. Each participant got to focus on a specific area of production or gather knowledge overall in projects and departments during this time.
Lectures have included topics such as through production process, work safety, communication in it’s all forms, basic duties of PA’s in the field and some more in depth knowledge of logistics managing, casting extras and creating production documents. Besides these they’ve been joining our teams for training days in our office and in film / commercial / TV shoots.
Program’s first two editions have been organised pro bono by our team and collaboration partners. Currently we are working on funding the next edition for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. If you are interested in supporting the program or have an idea for a future collaboration please get in touch with us!
