MAKING MY MARK

Let’s celebrate the things that make you, you.  

From your family’s journey to the UK or growing up in the countryside of the Cotswolds, each of us has a unique story that’s worth recording and celebrating. 

Get involved in Making My Mark, a free programme for 16 – 25 year-olds to be one of 10 young producers that go on a creative journey to make a film exploring personal heritage and identity. Selected producers will be invited to an in-person Bootcamp in Swindon on the 6th and 7th of November 2021, and to participate in two more virtual Bootcamps. Throughout the programme, you will be supported by a filmmaker mentor to assist your creative journey.     

Help us celebrate your personal heritage story by telling us why it means so much to you.

We’ll look at each story submission and will be in touch with 10 budding filmmakers to offer free training this autumn for a mentored production period in the Spring of 2022.  All completed films will be part of a touring exhibition around English Heritage properties across the country in Summer 2022.  The films will also act as inspiration to hundreds of other young producers responding to a Making My Mark Open Callout next year.  

In a 2 minute short film, you will inspire us and others with your personal story celebrating your identity and heritage – what makes you, you.

CREATE FUTURES

Following the success of Create Studios first graduate scheme in 2018 we are very excited to continue this programme for another two years, with support from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation who share our commitment to support all people into the Creative Industries through their Emerging Talent strand.

The Create Futures programme involves 6 cohorts of  young people returning to the Swindon/Wiltshire/Gloucester area from Uni or College, being part of a supported transition programme from education to industry mentored by Create’s Senior Film Creative, Gurch Singh.

During the 3 month placement Create Futures grads undertake mentored roles on commercial commissions, lead on independent brief responses, benefit from Masterclasses from industry gurus, and are supported to be “industry ready” focussing on everything from team-working to self-employment and networking.

Check out the Alumni section to see some of our recent grads who have gone on to secure fantastic roles within the industry.

You would be based with the Create team for 3 days a week for 12 weeks. If you are a recent College or University graduate and have great skills in film, animation, illustration, design, photography or writing and want to kick start your career in an award-winning digital media organisation, please send your CV and cover letter to info@createstudios.org.uk to express your interest.
