WB Creative TalentChanging the Narrative / Posted on July 13, 2018
At Warner Bros., we are committed to discovering and empowering new voices by providing opportunities for diverse storytellers in the entertainment industry.
Warner Bros. Creative Talent finds and supports the next generation of UK creative talent. Since 2013, the program has provided emerging creative professionals with access to the industry through a wide variety of opportunities to study, train and gain invaluable experience and insight. In collaboration with community partners and industry leaders, including the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Creative Skillset and Chickenshed Theatre Company, participants dive into the business of entertainment while acquiring hands-on experience to apply to their future careers.
In 2018, Warner Bros. Creative Talent premiered its fifth season, featuring 23 scholars, apprentices and production trainees. Our five production trainees had the opportunity to engage with hair and makeup specialists, camera operators and production assistants on the set of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. From screenwriting to producing to acting, our scholars enhance their skills and passions in their respective fields while building their foundation for a future in the entertainment industry.
After the program, our alumni use their experiences to further their careers in the industry. Many have worked on major film, television and theatre productions in the UK while others have garnered critical acclaim, nominations and awards for their creative work.
We are investing in emerging creative talent, providing pathways into the entertainment industry for new voices and changing the narrative.
