FilmUp 2014: Apply now!

A mentor is a guide who is there to impart their years of wisdom and to offer up their secret black book of mistakes so you don’t have to repeat them.
- Producer and 2013 FilmUp participant Chelsea Winstanley (What We Do in the Shadows)

After a successful inaugural year, we’re excited to announce that FilmUp is back for 2014 and calling for applications!

FilmUp Mentorship continues to provide filmmaker participants 20 hours of one-on-one mentorships with acclaimed practitioners. 2013 attracted esteemed mentors including writer Neil Cross (Spooks, Luther), director Rolf de Heer (Ten Canoes, Bad Boy Bubby)and producer of over 20 feature films, Tim White.

We’re also thrilled to announce an exciting second strand, FilmUp Script Development, especially designed to up-skill those of you working with writers developing screenplays, whether you be producers, script editors, or directors.

Experienced coach and story consultant, Brita McVeigh, will be at the helm of this strand, working with participants to hone their story skills and process when collaborating with writers.

She’s a genuine collaborator. Every project is different and Brita’s skill is that she knows how to find the weak spots and strengthen them. She knows how to work closely on the script with the writer/director, or in rehearsal with the cast, to enhance the vision – that’s how she worked with Taika on ‘Boy’.
