Hollyoaks Emerging Directors Training Scheme launched

Lime Pictures, in partnership with Channel 4 and Directors UK have announced a new paid training and mentoring opportunity for two emerging diverse directors.

The scheme is funded by Channel 4 as part of their Spotlight on Directors initiative for 2017 – in which the broadcaster aims to progress the careers of 40 diverse directors across all genres.

The opportunity will involve a commitment of nine continuous weeks on the set of the successful long-running continuing drama series Hollyoaks. The aim is not only to observe the whole production process from prep to post production, but to take full responsibility for an episode of Hollyoaks and thereby gain a directing credit.

Applications are now open.

The deadline for applications is: Monday 22 May.
