Meet Our ‘Get On Set’ Mentees

We are elated to introduce and congratulate our ten mentees who have joined our PESP-3 funded ‘Get on Set Young Producers Mentorship Programme’. Having received 227 applications, we had a hard time selecting the ten finalists, who are currently undergoing a 10-week career-changing experience.

The aspiring producers are gaining first-hand knowledge of the business side of the industry as they get on-set work experience under the mentorship of some of the country’s leading producers. The programme aims to fill an important knowledge and experience gap the industry faces when it comes to ensuring graduates are industry-ready and capacitated to lead as producers.

We thank the producers who have taken on the mentorship role for their valuable investment in the future of the industry – Videovision, Quizzical Pictures, Rous House Productions, Nagvlug Films, Sisanda Henna Films, Known Associates Entertainment, Burnt Onion Productions, Yellowbone Entertainment, and Urban Brew Studios. From these industry leaders the mentees will get the best possible induction into what it means and takes to be a successful producer.

Warm congratulations to the successful candidates: Brandon Clarke, Emma Tollman, Fezeka Makhabela, Kagiso Malefane, Siyasanga Mbikwana, Sibonele Yawa, Simo Ngcobo, Siyavuya Mfenqa, Tumelo Nkwanca and Vidal Thaver

We look forward to tracking their career progress after completion of the programme!
