The ‘Zoom Futures’ course starting in January at Bethnal Green’s Four Corners studios in the Roman Road, running to April, is free to anyone over 18 who is unemployed or on low wages to train in creative media with professionals.

The 16 trainees to be selected make a short movie and learn a range of practical skills in digital film production.

Travel and childcare costs are included, with mentoring and even opportunities for paid work placements and further employment.

Year 1 creative media trainee Mohd Rahman said: “This course at Four Corners really has changed my life.”

The course targets those currently under-represented in creative media, including women, ethnic minorities and disabled, with fees paid by Tower Hamlets council. It is open to applicants at various levels—including complete beginners.

Four Corners is an independent training studio for film and photography, recognised for getting people into creative media jobs from diverse backgrounds.

The training course is being funded until 2018 through Tower Hamlets council’s Routeways to Employment programme.
