Birmingham Ormiston Academy, with support from First Light and the BFI, is launching a new pilot training lab which will concentrate on documentary film making and producing for 18-19 year olds. This is a pilot summer residential, funded by the BFI, and based at BOA – a brand new purpose built academy for the creative, digital and performing arts based in Birmingham city centre.
BOA is looking to nurture enthusiastic, committed young people with a fresh take on documentary filmmaking and factual content that is currently not being reflected on the screen. Perhaps you have an idea for a documentary? Do you have passion and an insight into the subject? Could you help an audience see the world through someone else’s eyes?
This is a unique opportunity for new entrants who have a strong interest in documentaries, to meet and work with experienced professionals working in the sector.
The Lab will include:
The Lab will be held at BOA in Birmingham for 5 consecutive days (week beginning 6th August 2012). If you are selected, your accommodation and meals will be covered for the Lab. programme; there is a limited number of travel bursaries available for those people who can demonstrate need.
To apply for a place please complete all sections of the application form and return to BOA by email together with a current CV to Pepita.firstname.lastname@example.org or post to:
BOA; 1 Grosvenor Street; Birmingham; B4 7QD
Successful applicants will be notified by: 12th July 2012
