WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE FILM INDUSTRY?
What are you waiting for?
Yellow Rain believes in providing free hands on experience and mentorship for young lovers of film who want experience in the industry, rather than fetching a boss coffee. We share our knowledge with you from the programs, lessons, and jobs we have done. We pair you up with specific department or film job, and you can ask all the questions you have ever dreamed of, learn how to properly do that job, and add it to your resume! In the event that we feel you're ready to take on that specific job, once you receive training, we'll even hire you and pay you like one of our own employees! From makeup for the screen, to music, to the writers room, to being a DP, we believe young people should have access to getting their foot in the industry.
Fill out the google form below and submit your portfolio of work(doesn't have to be perfect, we all start somewhere), a paragraph on why you want this, your resume and what experience you think you'll gain.
Open to individuals who are:
-high school seniors & juniors interested in filmmaking and cosmetology
- recent high school graduates who cannot afford film school or cosmetology school
-cosmetology school beauticians or people with a love of makeup who want to expand their portfolios
-Performing arts majors
-people interested in film with all levels of experience
All mentees will receive imdb credit on various projects, letters of recommendation and hands on a real set experience on different Yellow Rain films and multimedia projects.
