    MISSION DIGITAL AND SCREENSKILLS RECENTLY LAUNCHED THEIR DIT TRAINING INITIATIVE 

    There are a couple of things they have asked for.  This is a message from the Project Manager, Ingrid Civet:

    “We're still filming some content and I was wondering if you knew of anyone who may be interested in doing an industry testimonial about their relationship with a DIT or if a DIT wants to talk a bit about their journey.

    We're looking to do some filming at Sony in Pinewood on the 7th, 9th and 10th November. 

    I also wanted to reach out as we're starting to prepare for the more in person training for January.  James will be one of the people teaching but I would love to have someone else there too to go through rigs etc...

    Ideally it would be great to have an independent freelancer so that the candidates have both perspective.  Do you think anyone you know may be interested? 

    I have budget for anyone who will be joining us so that they can get paid for their time.”
    To contact Ingrid, please email her: ingrid@missiondigital.co.uk
