U25 Enterprise

Wide Angle is calling for our best and brightest screen creatives aged under 25 to create U25 Enterprise.

U25 is Wide Angle Tasmania’s social enterprise – a business within WAT that generates income for its members from activities that increase screen culture in Tassie.  Wide Angle believes that talented young filmmakers could be learning and earning in their passion area, rather than working in part-time jobs in unrelated industries – and we’re here to help you do that.

U25 Enterprise will have the run of Wide Angle’s facilities and equipment – plus a $5,000 budget to get started.  U25 Enterprise members will work together to plan the group’s activities, share the workload and reap the benefits… developing a set of entrepreneurial skills that you’ll need for a future working in the creative sector.

You’ll also need to back yourself - by investing $250 to secure your spot in U25 Enterprise. This will be added to the kitty to help seed your ideas. We see this social enterprise running for years – but over time members will come and go – so we’ll refund your initial investment when you leave U25 Enterprise.

If you don’t have the cash to invest, we’ll help you out – you can host an event at Washington St, run a crowdfunding campaign or see if Widey has any casual work available. 

FIVE filmmakers, aged between 16 and 25, are needed to start the U25 Enterprise. Interested?

EOI Process:
If you’re keen to be a founding member of U25 Enterprise, send an Expression of Interest (EOI) and a copy of your resume to info@wideangle.org.au by 12 noon on Friday 17thAugust.

EOI’s can be written (1 page maximum) or by video (no longer than 2 minutes). Tell us your idea for an activity that could generate some income for the group.  The activity needs to involve screen culture somehow – and should be achievable by the end of the year.

In 2018, only one full intake will occur. After that, spaces are only available once a member leaves.
