A total of 300 students across 24 universities have completed the new course offered by the BAFTA-backed albert authority for sustainable production in the TV and film industries.

The ‘Class of 2020’ has been trained on the fundamentals of applying environmental sustainability to production.

The course is designed for students enrolled on production courses at universities and aims to give them the opportunity to learn about environmentally-responsible working practices, as well as exploring how to develop on-screen content compatible with a sustainable society.

David Wheeler, Film and Television Lecturer at Middlesex University, said: ‘Our students have great interest and commitment to environmental issues and sustainability.

“I am convinced that albert’s training, covering the areas of both sustainable production and planet placement in editorial will have a long-term impact on new talent entering the industry and the audiences of their future productions.”
