What it's all about
I am in the process of setting up a film production company as a young enterprise. The film company is focused on helping young women from diverse backgrounds find work in the film industry. So we expect to offer an AQA -Creative and Media Diploma and training as well as shorter workshops. The aim is to get training programmes set up for 6 month periods and that after completing the 6 months with us we can employ the participant for a further 6 months, so that they can work on our creative projects with us. It is in it's very early stages, we hope to find funding to get ourselves started. Alternatively we need other organisations to offer us the use of their film equipment and an office in which to train people in and to produce work as well as find volunteers, after that hopefully we can find our own equipment and our own office space. Here is a description of the company:
Black Mountain Films is a socially conscious film production company that aims to give young women from disenfranchised backgrounds the confidence and skills to work in the industry. Blackmountain is a new young enterprise established by a young woman- Siobhan Schwartzberg and her female colleague Rachael Davies, both themselves from disenfranchised backgrounds, Wales and East London respectively. They produce work that is creatively exciting and of a high quality and want the same for their participants. They believe the film industry is closed off for most young women and especially those from more diverse backgrounds, they want that to change. They want to make young women, the movie stars of the future. Could you be that star?
What's needed to make it a reality
Volunteers!! A Training space, an office space we can use to expand the business (though this is not as necessary) and production equipment such as Cameras and Tripods.
