A unique new partnership with the University of South Wales’s Film & TV School Wales saw students and graduates working on leading television productions.
The next generation of filmmakers were given the opportunity to work on leading television productions, thanks to the new partnership. Students worked as trainees in Cardiff’s Wolf Studios, USW graduates have worked on the BBC and HBO production of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, as well as the Lena Dunham-directed HBO drama ‘Industry’, and two series of Sky One’s popular drama `A Discovery of Witches’.
USW students and graduates have also worked on two seasons of the Netflix series, Sex Education. After a number of successful graduate placements on season one, production company Eleven Film arranged for 18 work placements during the filming of the second series for graduates across the whole production – including costume, art, camera, sound and other areas – with many lasting several weeks.
During the production, several trainees went on to longer term roles, and a number have since gone on to work on other Netflix series.
