Into Film enters new partnership to deliver Media Careers Podcast

The film education charity Into Films has entered a new partnership to deliver the Media Careers podcast. 

It’s a part of Into Film’s Screen Industry Careers Programme, supported by the BFI, through National Lottery funding.

The podcast is aimed at young people interested in the screen industries and was recently created in response to the continuing skills shortages in many areas of the screen sector. 

It provides inspiration and information for secondary school students, with direct links to industry professionals and supporting organisations.

The weekly podcasts cover the breadth and variety of roles across the industry, featuring both creative and technical roles for TV, broadcast, film, media technology, animation and gaming.

Guests include professionals from across the industry – including Sky, ITV, and Pinewood Studios – talking about their education and career journey, how they landed their first job and what their current role involves.

The show provides a glimpse behind the scenes and showcases a variety of different jobs in media, as well as the skills and personality traits best suited to them. Media Careers aims to support young people as they enter the world of work and expand their understanding of what’s possible. 

Carrie Wootten, Founder of Media Careers Podcast, says: “I’m delighted to be partnering with Into Film on the Media Careers Podcast as we share the same vision of breaking down the barriers that exist between young people and the screen industries.

“There are so many great opportunities for young people in the world of screen and through this partnership our aim is to inspire and support them to take their interest further.”

Paul Reeve, Into Film CEO, adds: “For many young people, the world of screen feels beyond their reach, and yet there are so many viable opportunities for them.

“I look forward to partnering with the Media Careers Podcast to change that mindset, and to inspiring the next generation of screen industry practitioners.”

The Media Careers Podcast is available on Spotify and Apple.
