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.
