Film and media taster day on Monday
March 22, 2012
Teenagers interested in a career in acting or the media are invited to a workshop next week.
About 400 young people are being offered the chance to take part in the Project Postcode Taster Day on Monday.
The event at Reading Town Hall is being organised by Bredrin Filmworks, founded by Reading-born actor Winston Ellis.
Subjects include acting, film/camera work, radio/radio journalism, make-up/costume and social and life skills.
There will also be a question and answer session featuring Mr Ellis, actor Andy Beckwith and musician Luc Floreani.
Project Postcode was set up to provide training, learning and work placements for young people on a feature film which will be made in Reading.
Sixty young people took part in an evening taster session in the Civic Offices in February.
The taster day is being staged with Reading Borough Council’s Positive Futures project.
Anyone aged between 14 and 19 years who would like to take part should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (0118) 937 4048 with their name, date of birth and telephone number.
A confirmation email and information pack will be sent to those successful in securing a place.
