We’re very proud to announce our partnership with international camera, crew, and equipment hire company, Procam!
The partnership, which begins this month, will run until December 2021.
Procam will be the sole provider of the equipment required by our #SetReady course participants. The equipment will be used by groups of students to create a film which will mark the first step towards their careers in film and go on to be screened to friends, family, and peers.
Equipment will also be supplied to participants of our Emerging Brits programme. This equipment will be operated by young and aspiring British filmmakers as they create films that will be screened at the Cineworld in Leicester Square to an audience of industry professionals.
National Youth Film Academy founder Rob Earnshaw explained: “Our partnership with Europe’s leading digital cinematography facility, Procam, forms a strong foundation for the careers of these students to be built upon and speaks volumes about the company’s desire to support the future generations of British filmmakers. This collaboration will give our students the platform, the knowledge and the technology to bring their stories to the big screen.”
John Brennan, Procam Group CEO added: “We are honoured to be playing such a significant role in the education of these young aspiring filmmakers and working closely with the NYFA is a pleasure. Current and future members will gain essential skills and experience as they learn how to operate the high-quality, industry-standard equipment we will be providing. A coherent understanding of such equipment is a huge advantage that will enable NYFA’s students to start out with confidence.”
In addition to supplying equipment for our #SetReady and Emerging Brits courses, Procam will deliver masterclasses, lectures, and online videos for members that will further their education in working with camera, sound, and lighting equipment on set.
The Aftercare team help our members find paid work in the film and screen industries!
