SBTV is one of the leading online youth broadcasters which provides a platform to discover up and coming artists, as well as underground talent. They’re a youth media brand specialising in producing youth led content and programming.

This opportunity is aimed at 18-25 year olds who are enthusiastic and looking for a chance to shine, so could this be the start of something big for you? This opportunity will provide you with hands on experience in producing a short form film about music. You will work across the different areas of film production, gaining invaluable experience and helping to create a commercial film.

Who are SBTV?

SBTV are a progressive brand focused on listening and creating with young voices, founded by Jamal Edwards when he was 15. Youth voice is a the core of their DNA. They respect and understand the value of young minds and voices making this a truly collaborative experience for you.

Who should apply?

What will I be doing?

As part of the Pre-Production team, you will work with the SBTV crew to kick off the project by:

  • Defining the story, casting, sourcing props and locations, organisation and logistics.
  • Defining the roles across production, post production and marketing.
  • Feeding into the writing process with SBTV’s writer Abraham Adeyemi.
  • Shortlisting the lead actors as part of the audition process.
  • Running rehearsals.
  • Defining the shooting schedule.

A few of the skills you’ll need and can develop through this include:

  • Organisation and attention to detail
  • Leadership and teamwork
  • Creativity and story telling
  • Researching and listening
  • Negotiation and collaboration

The final film will be launched at an exclusive event, and you’ll get to be there with your team and the SBTV crew.
