'Skillset's Inside Pictures' launches
'Skillset's Inside Pictures', the film business training programme funded by the Skillset Film Skills Fund, will be accepting applications from 18 July 2005.
Comprising three intensive one-week modules, 'Skillset's Inside Pictures' takes place in London and Los Angeles between November 2005 and May 2006.
The programme covers all aspects of international film business - from development through production, financing, worldwide distribution and exhibition - and provides networking and profile raising opportunities for the participants. Some of the US and UK's most senior industry professionals host seminars, workshops and studio visits.
According to Skillset, the successful applicants will be 14 executives and producers who display ambition, a determination to broaden their knowledge of the global film industry, and expand their network of contacts. They should have a minimum of a 5 year track record in film or an associated creative industry such as television.
The initiative is supported by the National Lottery through the Skillset Film Skills Fund as part of 'A Bigger Future, the UK Film Skills Strategy' and is run by Michael Kuhn's Qwerty Films.
Iain Smith, Producer and Chair of the Film Skills Strategy Committee overseeing the implementation of 'A Bigger Future', said: "'Skillset's Inside Pictures' is a chance for some of the best film business talent at work in the UK to hone their skills and knowledge base and take it to the next level. It's a great scheme which benefits the industry by helping to develop our future innovators and entrepreneurs."
Jill Tandy, Programme Director and Co-Managing Director of Qwerty Films, said: "Thanks to the extraordinary commitment of so many of the industry s top professionals there can be no other international executive training programme of this calibre anywhere else in the world. Their unparalleled investment in our most promising business talent will continue to benefit industry for years to come."
