Chocolate Films Establishing Shot Programme:

What’s the programme all about?

If you have ambitions of becoming the next Ava DuVernay, the Establishing Shot programme features a jam-packed day of pre-employment workshops run by leading video professionals to give you an insight into the inner workings of Chocolate Films and the exciting employment opportunities available in the film industry. Chocolate Films will collaborate with social enterprise organisations to recruit 100 diverse young people into the programme.

What are the key benefits of the programme?

After completing the introductory workshops, you can apply for one of 12 week-long paid work placements where you could get the chance to become a ‘Production’ or Crew’ member for the whole week. If that wasn’t enough, interns who successfully complete the paid work experience placement could even secure an entry-level position at Chocolate Films!

The programme then wraps up with a few of the paid interns volunteering to reverse mentor the directors of Chocolate Films and ask any burning questions they might have about the video production industry.

Who’s the programme for?

This programme is perfect for you if you’ve always dreamed of becoming a film-maker and want to know more about this exciting industry. You can apply for this programme as long as you’re between the ages of 18-25 and live in Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark or Wandsworth and from diverse backgrounds.

How can I get involved in the programme?
