Our Second Guest is the Oscar Winning Producer & Head of Film and Animation for ScreenSkills - Gareth Ellis-Unwin!

Gareth's career as a producer spans his work on King's Speech ( which one four oscars including best picture & 7 baftas) as well as the critically acclaimed Kajaki with Mark Stanley and Malachi Kirby, and Steel Country starring Andrew Scott.

Gareth's work as head of ScreenSkills runs strongly paralell to his producing and is directly helpful to aspiring filmmakers - his current work lays out where there is money for training, to support hiring trainees.

(ABOUT SCREENSKILLS)ScreenSkills is funded by industry contributions to skills funds – there’s a Film Skills Fund, a High-end TV Skills Fund, animation, TV and children’s TV Plus National Lottery money awarded by the BFI.

ScreenSkills do everything to find, develop and retain talent in behind-the-camera roles. They have careers information on the website, hold Open Doors events where aspiring filmmakers can come to meet people already working in the industry and Trainee Finder is their new flagship new entrant paid placement programme where those who are accepted – get the opportunity to work on productions that have paid into the skills funds with the film (or HETV production) being subsidised to take them. There is also programmes to support people to progress in the industry once they are in eg Make a Move Film which again offers funds to enable productions to help people step up into a more senior role than the one they are currently in. That programme is currently focused on supporting people from groups under-represented in the industry.

Skills funds work on the basis of paying in a percentage of UK production spend – so they have had small-scale shorts pay in just a few pounds and the biggest productions pay in up to a cap of £55,000. Everything from God’s Own Country to Wonder Women 2 and 1917 to Judy and Wild Rose.
