This could be of interest to UK people. It seems to be a replacement for the FT2 scheme

Sorry about the typo in the title.

Oh great, a film trainee scheme.

Training to do what, on what films? Where? When?

There are no jobs for these people.

The old FT2 scheme was pretty successful. I know people who were on it, they worked as trainees on major features and TV dramas plus other productions, then actually got work as camera assistants and later DPs. I'd support this sort of scheme over many of the universities offering film degrees. 10 people sounds pretty manageable.

The old scheme was aimed at the freelance market. There was no guarantee of success because you were on it, but you did meet the people you needed to get started.
