Movie Magic supports 'Second Light'

" The scheme is going to equip them [trainees] with the skills, knowledge and understanding of the industry, which in turn will increase their chances of gaining entry to the film business and thereby contribute to the development of a more vibrant and representative UK film industry " - Yen Yau, Project Manager, Second Light

We are delighted to support 'Second Light', a new talent development training scheme for young people. Second Light is funded by the UK Film Council and Skillset, as part of A Bigger Future, the training and education strategy for the UK film industry, and supports young Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) filmmakers.

As part of their training, students will take part in a scheduling workshop and use Movie Magic Scheduling to schedule a 10 minute short film.
