ST. LOUIS - May 5, 2022 - PRLog -- The media industry is no exception when it comes to desiring a skilled and diverse workforce yet like numerous other companies, finding content creators, filmmakers and crew members of different backgrounds, ethnicities, race, age, identities and neurodivergence can be quite challenging. To help meet this demand, Continuity, a St. Louis based non-profit, created one-day workshops to teach people the basic skills and networking they need to start working in the media industry. Their mission is to expand diversity in media production through skills-based training, mentorship and opportunities for untapped talent.

On Saturday, June 11th, Continuity will be holding their second Set Basics Workshop at Spot Content Studio in south St Louis City. The workshop is sponsored by the Missouri Film Office and provides 30 attendees an intense 10-hour day to learn set etiquette, how a film set works and how to find work. Attendance is by invitation only and those interested must submit an application online.

The goal of the Set Basics Workshop is to demystify and spotlight the variety of roles on film, corporate and commercial production sets and educate participants on the many opportunities to get started in the film and video industry. The workshop will be emceed by local media personality Jade Harrell and feature nine St. Louis industry professionals including Dan Steadman of Circa 87 Films (former casting director for NBC, Fox, Paramount, Animal Planet, and VH-1) and Missouri Film Office Commissioner, Andrea Sporcic.

The Set Basics Workshop will be held in Kansas City in the Fall and offered again locally one more time before the end of the year. Continuity will continue offering the workshops in multiple cities in the years that follow with various dates projected in 2023.
