At the heart of Mediorite is our desire to tackle youth unemployment and spark young people’s passion for media production. We are proud that every job we do creates paid work for a young person we have trained. Our films look good and do good too.
Founder and Director Lucy Ferguson drew on her 12 years of media experience to set up a rapidly evolving media production house with a unique social vision. Ten years on, we’re still opening doors for young people, regardless of their background.
Working with a range of partners, Mediorite starts by engaging young people in the exciting possibilities of a career in media production.
All our programmes are free to access for young Londoners. We aim to nurture creative potential and enthusiasm wherever we find it, through training, coaching and on-the-job experience.
But we don’t just give young people experience; we fire their ambition, hone their skills and give them the inspiration and confidence to succeed. This means always being there for them — we’re still in touch with people we’ve helped 10 years later.
We have ongoing outreach for any newbies, and we’ve developed an exciting new and ambitious advanced programme, which began in July 2019.
