An Opportunity Not to be Missed

A DREAM OPPORTUNITY: GET YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR WITH MAJOR FEATURE FILM SHOOTING IN WALES

 

Our friends at Ffilm Cymru are once again offering a dream opportunity to aspiring Welsh creatives and crew, who will learn valuable skills on the set of a major new film production with Ffilm Cymru’s biggest ever Foot in the Door programme.

 

Dream Horse is the true story of one woman’s extraordinary dream to breed and raise a champion racehorse on the allotment of her forgotten Welsh village - and of how she brings her entire community with her. Toni Collette (Hereditary, Velvet Buzzsaw, About A Boy) will take the role of Jan, while Damian Lewis (the upcoming Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Billions, Homeland) will play Howard Davies, the local accountant she persuades to join her in running the racing syndicate. The film has been written by Neil McKay (The Moorside, Mo, Appropriate Adult) and will be directed by Welsh filmmaker Euros Lyn (Happy Valley, Kiri, The Library Suicides).

 

Dream Horse will shoot across south Wales this spring, and Ffilm Cymru are working in partnership with Raw Productions to offer up to 25 free training placements and on set shadowing opportunities through their Foot in the Door programme.

 

For people that are over the age of 18 and not currently in employment, education or training, Foot in the Door offers the opportunity to spend a week learning valuable new skills and applying existing transferable skills to kick-start a career in the creative industries and beyond. Trainees receive guidance, advice and mentorship from industry experts, as well as support for travel, accommodation and childcare where needed, thanks to Ymddiried bursaries supported through the Welsh Broadcasting Trust.

 

The deadline for applications to Foot in the Door is midday on 3rd April.
