The BBG Junior Program is a professional training program founded in January 2019 for film industry newcomers who are looking for further training before joining larger productions. It was founded to meet the need for gathering more hands-on knowledge for interns and assistants in the industry to raise the understanding of productions to a higher level.
The Program has had two six-month editions, during which the participants have been learning more of filmmaking by attending different lectures, visiting multiple production houses and working part time as interns with the gang. In total, 19 participants have started the program and 16 have graduated. During the Program, each participant has focused on a specific area of production or gathered general knowledge in projects and departments.
The lectures have included topics such as the film production process, work safety, communication in all of its forms, the basic duties of PAs in the field and more in-depth knowledge of logistics managing, casting extras and creating production documents. The participants have also joined our teams for training days at our office and in film/commercial/TV shoots and had a separate training session on walkie communications.
The Program’s first two editions were organized pro bono by our team and collaboration partners. Currently we are working on funding the next edition for 2021. If you are interested in supporting the program or have an idea for future collaboration, please get in touch with us, so we can fill you in on our plans!
