Do you love playing with words and harbour a desire to transform them into the tools of your trade? Have you dreamt of a career in TV and Film but been too nervous to explore the possibility? Would you like to help shape what future audiences tune in to view?
If the answer to these questions is a resounding YES, then ‘Flip the Script’ could well be the first step towards fulfilling your ambitions…

Flip The Script is a new creative talent development program for trainee script editors launched by Manchester-based social enterprise SharpFutures with the support of Sky Studios and ScreenSkills, curated by Cameron Roach and members of the Sky Drama team.

The aim and vision of the program is to inspire and encourage a new generation of scripted professionals, specifically with a focus on individuals in the North West, by offering twelve paid placements for trainee script editors to acquire and hone their skills and editorial voice, enabling them to go forward and apply for positions as researchers, script editors, assistant story editors and dramaturgs in the future.

Participants will have exposure to a wide variety of scripted content and contributors which will include employees and creatives working with Sky, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Netflix, NBC, AbbottVision, Quay Street Productions, Lime Pictures & CBBC.

Applications have just opened and full details about the course & how to apply are on the SharpFutures website.
