All Spring Media is collaborating with Art Department to deliver the Art and Props Assistant Skills Bootcamp.

The Skills Bootcamp is a free industry training programme based at Sky Studios Elstree, the UK’s newest state-of-the-art film and TV studio. It will teach industry-specific skills and processes to give learners confidence as Assistants and will teach insider tricks of the trade to make them great Assistants.

Learners will hear from trainers across five departments who collaborate to deliver the Production Design on a film or TV show. These departments include Props, Set Decoration, Art Direction, Graphics and Set Building (materials and practical skills). Each trainer will introduce their department and teach the knowledge and skills required for Art and Props entry-level roles with practical exercises.

Art Department is an agency and diary booking service that exclusively represents professionals working in the art department. With 30 years’ experience in this niche and diverse area of the industry, they have looked after crew at all levels, from Production Designers to Assistants and all the vital roles in between.

The Art and Props Assistant Skills Bootcamp is funded through the Department of Education and is managed by Hertfordshire’s Local Enterprise Partnership. To see their full list of Skills Bootcamps, refer to their Hertfordshire Opportunities Portal: https://www.hopinto.co.uk/skills-bootcamps/
