We’re thrilled to announce that Windfall Films (part of the Argonon Group) is partnering with Imperial College London to encourage diversity and inclusion within science-based television production and content creation. Along with two other UK indies, Blink Films and Arrow Media, Windfall Films are offering three fully funded positions on Imperial College of London’s prestigious MSc in Science Media Production to a UK candidate who has already completed or is currently studying a STEM degree and is from underrepresented ethnic groups.
Imperial’s Science Media Production MSc offers practical training for those aiming for a career in broadcast media and as part of the year-long course, the successful applicant will also be offered a one-month placement within the TV industry. The scholarship also covers course fees and London living expenses. All three production companies are currently committed to funding the scholarship for the next three years.
Louise Metcalfe, Talent Manager at Windfall Films said: “Diversity and Inclusion is a continuous conversation here at Windfall as we strive to recruit, retain and amplify the very best creative talent from underrepresented groups. We recognise that the industry needs to take bigger strides to address under-representation both on and off-screen and hope this initiative is a small step in the right direction.”
