What’s a masterclass?
A masterclass is an introduction for young people to see how a media organisation works. You will get to see how MTV produce and commission TV shows and what all those busy looking people are actually doing in those offices! It’s an opportunity for you to listen, meet and chat with staff at MTV and to learn the basics of what working in this industry might involve.
I don’t live in London?
Don’t panic! We encourage applications from young people all across the UK as well as London. We can pay and for reasonable travel costs too and help book this too, so there’s no need to worry about how your going to get there. We will reimburse travel for young people in London on the day of the masterclass, just keep hold of your receipts!
Do I have to have experience in the media industry?
Not at all! If you have experience that’s great and we would love to hear about it in the application form. If you haven’t don’t be put off, we want your passion for the industry and MTV to shine through…. So if you love listening to music or watching the TV shows on MTV tell us about it by applying!
What interests are you looking for?
We are looking for young people who are looking to work in the creative and media industries, particularly in the areas of content creation and production, this could be for TV or social media for a range of digital formats. If you’re intrested in copy-writing, self shooting or editing, we are also interested in hearing from young people who have big ideas who are looking to make them into reality.
What if I’ve already been to masterclass with Media Trust?
We like to give these opportunities to as many young people as possible from across the UK, so we will prioritise applications from young people who have never attended a masterclass before with Media Trust – however if you have applied before and there is space we will do our best to give you a place.
