Is a career in TV and film something you’ve been considering? It doesn’t matter if you’re fresh out of education, or you’ve decided on a career change – no matter what journey you’re on, you need to sign up to our NFM Crew Academy Boot Camp.

Perhaps you’re looking to work on a regional network TV drama such as ITV’s Vera, or maybe you see yourself on the set of a major feature film, either visiting the region or maybe somewhere a little more exotic?! Our Boot Camp provides an amazing opportunity to hear from some of the industry’s leading professionals about the joys and challenges that await you.

The NFM Crew Academy Boot Camp runs every day from Monday 14th – Friday 18th June at 1pm. Most of the sessions are 1 hour long, but some will last a little longer. Booking is now open: NFM Academy Boot Camp. You must be 18 or over to book on these events and living in the North East. Preference will be given to those in the Tees Valley area.
