An introduction to the world of post production in film, TV and online digital platforms
Creativity Works: Rushes is a six-week immersive introduction to the world of post production in Film, TV + online digital platforms for 15 aspiring young creatives from under represented groups aged 18-24 from London.
This specially tailored programme has been co-designed with leading industry experts offering course participants a combination of behind the scenes insight and awareness, practical hands on experience, technical post production skills as well as the chance to respond to a live brief.
Participants will learn about the industry, its current landscape and about the different roles, responsibilities and skills required to progress into careers in post production from runner to editor, sound designer, to colourist, production manager to facilities manager and everything in between.
Throughout the 6 weeks, participants will develop their editing skills using software including Final Cut Pro, Avid, Premiere Pro and will learn a basic understanding of on and offline edits. They will also spend time shadowing editors, sound specialists and colour/grading specialists. The group of 15 will be split into 3 smaller teams of 5 to direct, produce and shoot their own content on mobile phones which they will edit and present back to a panel of experts for industry feedback.
In addition, they will receive an introduction to areas of technical specialism like the world of VFX from leading industry specialists and will go back to basics with a workshop on shooting with Super 8 Film. Training will include post production for TV, Film as well as commercials, music videos and short films.
As well as working with leading established post production houses, broadcasters and studios, we will also be hearing from freelance creatives and individuals who are working in a DIY capacity at the cutting edge of digital and filmed content with close links to leading artists and brands.
Typical training days will include practical skills workshops with leading editors and post houses, field trips to film studios, TV sets and post production houses.
