In early February, the Equal Access Network hosted its second Stand-Out on Set course, curated and lead by our very own Azariah Jade, the EAN’s Industry Outreach Executive who started out as a Trainee herself.
This course for new entrants into the film/tv industry aims to give participants knowledge of set-etiquette and the different components that are integral to understanding how a set works. On top of that, it gives participants a deeper understanding of how manage as a diverse individual within the film/tv industry.
In partnership with Universal’s Below-the-Line Traineeship, this course first and foremost trains the selected Trainees before they start their placement so that they have some knowledge before they start. The course is also open to other applicants of the Traineeship as Azariah in order to stand them in good stead for other opportunities they wish to apply fo
25 people attended the week-long course and the feedback from it has been immense. One of the course participants secured employment as a result of the course, two others partnered together and shot a music video and as a collective, a WhatsApp group was created for them all to stay in connected. Not only did they leave with a huge number of tips and tools to stand out on set, but they also left with a huge network of like-minded creatives!
Thank you to all those who helped us make this course. Azariah, and the EAN, Universal and all the industry professionals who took part in training the participants. It was a huge success, and we look forward to the next one!
