Every year, LoveLove Films takes on selected students for our New Talent Placement Scheme, which is based in our busy Bournemouth studio. Our New Talent Placement Scheme gives you a chance to experience working within a vibrant, independent production company environment.
Roles at LoveLove can vary, depending on your specialist skills/interests. For example, if you’re doing a post-production course/degree, you may have a chance to get involved with editing/VFX/graphic design/animation.
However, there won’t always be post-production/practical filming/on-set runner roles, so you may be asked to help us within the pre-production aspects of each project, for example researching potential clients, new trends and so on, as well as being proactive and helping around the studio. The possibilities are endless!
Here at LoveLove, we understand the importance of supporting students and young people, and we endeavour to nurture and encourage new talent in a holistic and creative manner.
We offer 2-4 week placements as we think this is the perfect amount of time to truly get to know each individual.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking to offer placements to individuals who are proactive, motivated, passionate and show a great deal of initiative.
We cater to individuals from a variety of courses, from animation and graphic design to TV production and other production based courses, and even marketing and business courses.
We like to get to know each of our placements, so it’s great for us to be able to see your personality, creativity and enthusiasm – which is why we ask for a video application to accompany your CV and cover letter (more in the ‘How To Apply’ section below).
80% of our team is made up from our New Talent Placement Scheme, so you really do get out what you give.
Our placements do need to be 18+ and unfortunately, due to the high volume of interest, placement slots are booked 6 months in advance on a first come first served basis.
Our New Talent Placement Scheme for media and TV production students is now fully booked until October 2017; however if you are currently undertaking a business/social media/marketing course or animation and graphic design course, please get in touch. Please be aware that we are only able to respond to successful applicants.
If you’ve got this far and think you’d be a great fit for our company, then please apply!
HOW TO APPLY
To inquire about potential placement opportunities, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a video application, 1 – 3 minutes in duration is perfect (be creative, sell yourself), your CV, your cover letter, examples of your work and your availability, with the subject “Hello Placement + your name”.
With the video application, we want you to get across your personality. It doesn’t need to be filmed professionally – it can be filmed on your phone. We just want you to be creative with it and not just read out your CV – tell us why you’re passionate about gaining experience in this industry, tell us what makes you stand out, tell us your favourite type of food if you wish! Feel free to include aspects of your specialist subject within the video, for example if you’re an editor, edit the video creatively! Creativity and passion are key!
