We will help you hone your CV with tips and tricks to help you stand out for all the right reasons. Meeting with our industry professionals will inspire you work towards a career in film and TV. With sessions on what to expect working in the industry, and how to perfect your CV, as well as insights from experienced crew giving their top tips for getting into and getting on in the industry, our one day Boot Camp is a must and is a requirement to join the NFM Academy.

Delegates must be aged 18 or over and based in the north east. Final year students welcome.

I attended the first NFM Trainee Boot Camp straight out of university. I had learned the skills that I needed to work in costume during my time at university but I still didn’t know anything about working in the TV and film industry as a crew member. The boot camp taught me chain of command on a TV/film set, how to act, who to approach, how to read a call sheet etc and this information has come in useful.’

‘I learned about the Crew on a TV or Film set and what each person’s job is. I also learnt about working your way up in that type of industry and what would happen on a normal day of filming.’

Our next Boot Camp will be in Newcastle on 15th November.

Bootcamp is supported by ScreenSkills using National Lottery funds awarded by the British Film Institute (BFI) as part of the Future Film Skills programme.
