Previous trainees have gone on to work in Star Wars, Mission Impossible, and Idris Elba’s directing debut, Yardie.
The programme includes six weeks of filmmaking training, which includes producing a short film, masterclasses, networking sessions and work experience. The 16 trainees are given an industry mentor to give them advice.
ZOOM supports trainees who want to become runners, animators, camera operators, researchers, screenwriters, directors, set designers and production assistants.
