“When we decided to base Bad Wolf in Cardiff, our belief was that Wales had the locations, crew and supply chain to cope with the biggest and most prestigious productions that Bad Wolf had the ambition to make. We knew we would not - and could not - do this without growing and nurturing the talent we have in Wales.
To achieve the aim that all local people, irrespective of their economic or ethnic background, should have access to well paid local jobs 365 days a year, without being dependent on having prior connections to the industry, Bad Wolf set up Screen Alliance Wales to train production crews for these new jobs and build up Wales’ infrastructure.
SAW offers a unique service, working with children from the age of nine in the classroom in school or at the studio to welcoming people from all ages on production whether it’s a professional, training or work shadowing placements. Since SAW’s inception they have worked with over 10000 people opening up opportunities and pathways to achieving Bad Wolf’s vision of a sustainable workforce in Wales”
