    M-Net Magic In Motion Academy Training+Scholarship 2017 for Aspiring Film-makers

    M-Net is once again proudly supporting the development of young talent in the entertainment industry with the renewal of its Magic in Motion Academy programme for 2017. Building on the success and impact of previous years, M-Net will also host a 4-day Magic in Motion Career Expo for aspiring young learners, as well as a new scholarship programme.


    Application Deadline: 31st January, 2017

    Eligible Countries: Mostly African countries

    To be taken at (country): South Africa

    Field of Study: Film and TV or related Field.

    About the Award: Since 2014, the M-Net Magic in Motion Academy has given top film and TV graduates the opportunity to make their dreams come true when they were selected to participate in a year-long work readiness programme where they learnt from some of the country’s top producers while gaining far-reaching experience in the industry.

    M-Net is again taking on interns for the 2017 class, which aims to develop a talent pool while growing capacity in the film and television industry, and simultaneously cultivating home-grown content.

    “As M-Net celebrates 30 years as the pay-TV pioneer on the continent, we understand the importance of investing in stories for Africans, by Africans and we are once again showing our commitment to taking talented youngsters under our wing to bring more local content to life,” explained M-Net CEO Yolisa Phahle.

    The Magic in Motion Academy interns will receive hands-on training in producing, directing, cinematography, production commissioning, concept creation, script writing, sound, art direction, editing, post-production and more. The course has been designed to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical implementation in order to produce highly employable professionals.

    Upon completion of the 12-month curriculum, M-Net will choose three exceptional interns to produce their own films with funding from M-Net and like years past, some of these movies could find their way onto a small screen near you.
