We are delighted to launch a range of NEW film funds and grants designed to develop the skills of junior and professional filmmakers.
The aim of these funds is to ensure the UK film industry remains cutting edge with a highly skilled competitive workforce.
Funds for training in 2012 – 2013 include:
CRAFT & TECH grants – Art Department
Cable clinic for camera & lighting crew
3D MOT – 3D consultancy for filmmakers
Masterclass fund for festivals, conference and trade shows
Health & Safety Training (ongoing)

Having already funded a significant number of practical hands on camera and on-set training programmes we are now looking to fund training for the wider production team with a view to ensuring that the UK is recognised as a global hub for Stereoscopic 3D feature production.
3D Stereoscopic (3DS) MOT is an initiative designed to provide consultancy and bespoke training for filmmakers looking to make their first or second 3D film.
In particular we are looking to support the following;
