Applications for Grierson DocLab In Focus: Editing close on Friday, 12 February at 5pm.
We’re looking for people who have the technical editing know-how but want to step up their offline editing skills and learn the art of the edit. Avid experience and knowledge preferred, but Premiere Pro is accepted. The scheme will be run on Avid.
We particularly encourage applications from women; people with a disability; those from BAME backgrounds; people from the LGBTQ+ community; and those from lower socio-economic backgrounds. We also encourage candidates from geographical areas across the UK that do not have many opportunities in the screen industries to apply. This is in line with the positive action provision of the Equality Act 2010.
