Between January and March, NI Screenworks will be holding 18 free work experience opportunities for young people within various craft & technical areas of the film, television, animation and gaming industries.

Below is some information about our upcoming ScreenWorks work experience programmes in January and February. All 12 currently available programmes are listed below and application forms can be downloaded from www.intofilm.org/screenworks - A further 6 programmes will be added soon for March.

One programme Sean Boyle would like to particularly draw your attention to is Production Accountancy with Seamus Devine. Seamus is considered the leading production accountant in Northern Ireland and he is returning from work on a Disney production in London to lead this programme. Production Accountants are one of, if not the most, sought after roles in the screen industries today in Northern Ireland. It’s an area that desperately needs more people working in it. It’s worth mentioning too that it is a particularly lucrative field too! It’s an area that would be of particular interest to Accounting, Business and Maths students.

Seamus has worked on Mary Poppins Returns, Game Of Thrones, Good Vibrations and many more high profile productions.

As with all previous ScreenWorks programmes, all of the below are entirely free and there are travel bursaries available to reimburse students’ public transport costs.
