C4 Pop Up 2017
C4 Pop Up is back! We'll be back out on the road in 2017 looking for the next rising stars of the media industry!
Each year Channel 4 and MyKindaFuture head out on the road across the UK to promote careers in the media industry and to find exciting new talent we call our Rising Stars. We’re looking for new and diverse voices that want to bring something different to our industry, who want to shine a light on underrepresented areas or issues. In 2017 we’re shaking things up a bit and there will be two different types of Pop Up!
First up, we’re heading to Birmingham (13th April) Bristol (20th April) and Belfast (27th April) to talk careers in the TV production industry. Want to know more about the different roles needed to create great TV? Interested in producing, directing, editing and production management? But not sure how to get your foot in the door? Then let us show you as this day will provide you with valuable insights to kick start your career. The day will involve a TV production workshop where you will produce your own short, insights from industry professionals, and the chance to hear more about Channel 4’s Production Training Scheme and speak to past trainees about their experiences.
Following that, in June we’ll be back on the road to talk alternative careers in the industry and apprenticeships at Channel 4. In 2017 we’ll be looking for new talent to join us in creative, commercial, technological and professional roles across the Channel and this is your opportunity to find our more. The day will involve skills workshops, industry insights from Channel 4 staff and the opportunity to quiz our current apprentices on what it is really like to work at the Channel and how to apply to be one of our 2017 apprentices!
If you like the sound of the Channel 4 Pop Up, applications will open on 10th April 2017.
