Thanks to sis Yasmeen of Campusalam for the ‘heads up’ on the following initiative:
DocuMentors provides students with an interest in film the opportunity be mentored by a professional film-maker and make vital contacts for future careers. Participants will gain access to high quality equipment and training as they work on their own film.
Last year participants worked with some of the biggest names in comedy – including David Mitchell, Omid Djalili and David Baddiel – in their film, “The Laugh Judgment”, about the relationship between faith and comedy.
We would be very grateful if you could circulate the information about the programme to your contacts, or recommend anyone you think we should approach.
Update: I just noticed that the deadline for application to the programme was 15th Nov 2010 – I only received the email yesterday, so I assumed that there was still time to enter! I recommend contacting the group anyway – even if it’s simply to register interest for future mentorships.
