CASA Creative Studios launch new prize scheme for under-represented talent

Jan 10, 2023

South London’s newest soundproof film studio, CASA Creative Studios has just launched the ‘£10K Shoot Day Giveaway’.  

The goal is to equip three filmmakers from underrepresented backgrounds with everything they need to create a short film in their studio.  

In partnership with other suppliers the prize includes, a days studio rental, a cinema camera package supplied by VMI.TV and the relevant insurances needed, subsidised by Performance Insurance. 

Films can be on any topic or style. Three prizes are available, with two being reserved for filmmakers aged 18-25. The deadline for submissions is 23rd of January.  

Submissions need to be submitted via the website form: 

CASA founder Davide Lorente says “As a business, I believe we should use our influence to help foster the change we want to see in the industry.”  

“We wanted to create an opportunity for under-represented talent to have access to facilities they might not normally have. Having come from a low-income family myself, I know hiring a studio and cinema camera package wouldn’t have even been on my radar as a possibility when I started out. This is the genesis of this ‘£10K Shoot Day Giveaway’.”  

“It’s great to have suppliers like VMI.TV Camera Rentals who also share this vision and have matched our contribution to the prize. If anyone else wanted to contribute to this prize, we would welcome them with open arms!”
