Take one for film student

Have your say

A WORKSOP man has just completed an innovative internship scheme to give him vital experience of life in the film industry.

Darren Mitchell, a media student from the University of Lincoln, was given a placement arranged and part-funded by EM Media, the screen agency for the East Midlands.

He went on a three-week placement in North Yorkshire working as a production assistant on Entity, a low-budget horror film being made by Nexus DNA and starring Dervla Kirwan.

“It was a really useful experience and very good for my future career to work on a film set and see how the industry works,” said Darren, who will graduate this summer.

“I made some great contacts for the future and I hope to start making a film of my own later this year.”
