The “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program is a free program that serves low-income New Yorkers with barriers to employment. After graduation, alumni connect with jobs in the booming New York City post production industry.

We partner with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYC Small Business Services to deliver the program. Strong computer skills and six months of industry experience preferred.

OUR TRAINEES

“Made in NY” Post Production Program trainees are unemployed or underemployed New Yorkers who face significant barriers to launching their careers.

We screen hundreds of applicants each year for about 50 training slots, so please read our Apply page to make sure you’re a good fit before attending an Information Session. Many applicants fall outside of our target populations, particularly when they have Bachelor’s degrees.

Graduates of the program always show up on time, understand how post facilities work, and have the core skills needed to excel in the industry. Most importantly, they are hungry to learn.

Interested in hiring an entry-level post professional? Call our program hotline at 347-470-3231 or visit our Hire page.

OUR PROGRAM

The training course is five weeks long, full-time, with homework and occasional evening sessions. Classes for the “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program will take place at BRIC Arts Media House, located at 647 Fulton St. in Brooklyn. Following the training course, participants join our alumni network and receive two years of job placement assistance, career counseling, and support as they work their way up the ladder.

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; we are unable to provide stipends.

WHAT COMES AFTER TRAINING

The Made in NY Post Production Training Program prides itself on training top-notch entry-level post employees who are prepared for the wide range of positions available in this growing industry. Graduates are placed into jobs at post facilities and on productions 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.

In order to establish a firm foundation for a career in the post production industry, The Made in NY Post Production Training Program has committed to providing career guidance and assistance to all of our graduates for a period of 2 years after graduation.
