Are you a filmmaker aged between 18 and 25 looking to break into the world of live television?

If you are not currently employed, in training or education, the Bloomberg Broadcast Volunteer programme is a completely FREE fast track course that will give you the skills you need to progress in the industry.

Across 7 weeks you’ll be given training by experienced professionals to enable you to confidently broadcast live. The project starts with a full week of training to learn how to use broadcast quality camera equipment and edit using the latest software and technology in the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios. After this, your training will continue alongside gaining real experience in film production to boost your CV with 80 hours of volunteering across Roundhouse festivals and events; including live broadcasts, promotional films and video productions.

The project will give you a thorough grounding in self-shooting and post-production, which is essential to succeed within a production company or as a freelance filmmaker.

Financial support is available to help with your travel and meal costs whilst taking part. Volunteering hours will include some evenings and weekends and will require you to attend between 4-5 days a week.

It is essential that you are available for the entire length of the project.
