The “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program prepares low-income, unemployed, and underemployed New Yorkers for entry level opportunities in the post production industry. Our program provides a combination of soft skills and technical training in industry-standard software. After completion of the program, we provide career guidance and placement support to trainees for two years as they establish their careers.  Our program is delivered in partnership with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYC Small Business Services.


This free course is a six-week, full-time training program running Monday through Friday from 9AM-5PM. Training for the “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program takes place remotely, via Zoom.

In addition to learning post production concepts, job readiness, and the skills necessary to succeed as a freelancer in NYC, our trainees will learn the basics of industry-standard post production software, including:

  • Avid Media Composer
  • Avid Protools
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Adobe Audition
  • Nuke
  • DaVinci Resolve

All BWI training programs are offered free of charge. However, trainees must be able to cover their personal expenses during the training and job search.


“Made in NY” Post Production Program trainees are eager to work in post production, and often have previous experience in the production, entertainment, or arts industries.

Each cycle, we meet and screen hundreds of applicants for only 15 training slots, so please read our Apply page to make sure you meet the eligibility guidelines before attending an Information Session.

The “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program prides itself on training top-notch entry-level post employees who are prepared for a wide range of positions available in this growing industry. Graduates go on to work in jobs at post facilities and on post teams in NYC that are creating some of the world’s most popular films, television shows, commercials, and music videos.

Above all, our graduates are excited about post and hungry to learn more while working in the industry they love.

Entry-level post employees often:

  • Perform client services and receptionist duties
  • Prep media for editing; collect and organize files
  • Organize post production paperwork
  • Handle shipments and deliveries
  • Go on runs for equipment and other needs

Getting a foot in the door at a post facility can lead to exposure to many different facets of post production. Once there, if graduates show a willingness to learn, they can sometimes climb up the ladder quite quickly, with the goal of entering more technical positions in a variety of disciplines such as color correction, visual effects, and audio mixing.
