All high-end TV production companies contributing to the High-end TV Skills Fund can apply for up to £20,000 of funding to help a nominated head of department take their next step up into producing high end television.
Eligible co-producer candidates should ideally have a minimum of ten years’ industry experience and a minimum of three consistent credits in a senior role within scripted film or TV production, and/ or factual production.
The high-end TV team does not source the placements, so it is either the responsibility of the individual seeking a placement to approach a production company willing to support them, otherwise high-end TV production companies can actively seek an eligible candidate themselves.
This high-end TV drama production-based placement programme should provide an agreed on-screen credit of at least co-producer for those taking part and the placement experience should consider, if possible, how the individual can gain the relevant experience in the following:
- Broadcaster / financier meetings / calls
- Budgeting and scheduling
- HoD interviews
- Prep and shoot
- Post and attendance of all key stages of final post and sign off procedure.
- Publicity and key deliverables
- International delivery
