This resource is one of those created as part of Into Film’s ScreenWorks programme to demystify the world of screen careers to young people aged 14 to 19 across Northern Ireland and the UK.

Professional editor and filmmaker Brian Phillip Davis has collaborated with us to summarise what the role entails, key skills needed and routes into the job. There is also a practical editing activity that learners can complete as a taster into the job role.

ScreenWorks is a screen industry work experience scheme offering unparalleled opportunities for young people aged 14-14 to learn about careers across Film, TV, Animation, Gaming and Visual Effects.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
