In 2021, we joined forces with the charity Arts Emergency, to offer some of their young people from diverse and typically underrepresented communities in the industry, a subscription to the Crew Diary Service.

Following on from the success of the first years cohort, we continued our partnership with Arts Emergency in 2022.

We invited Gwent Odai to the camera department and Katie Morris to the art department team, and paired them up with a Loop Talent HOD Mentor.

It’s been 6 months since our Arts Emergency trainees joined us, here’s what they have been up to…

Gwent Odai has been out on set with his mentor Rik Burnell on a short film project called “Dope Fiend”. He worked alongside another Loop Talent DOP, Ali Little on a content shoot for Earthling Films. He also collaborated with Sticker Studios on a short film called “Home”.

Katie Morris has been meeting with her mentor, Giorgia Lee Joseph. Katie Morris is a recent Fine Art graduate of the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford. Specialising in sculpture and large-scale fabric works Katie is physically able and confident in using a variety of materials to create props, costumes, and set pieces. Katie has also worked at the Oxford Playhouse as a freelance costume design assistant for various student productions.

A huge thank you to all our industry friends for being supportive of our initiative with Arts Emergency. Loop Talent is continuing to work with Arts Emergency for 2023 and we look forward to meeting the next batch of new recruits.

If you’d like to help support these young people and book them on your next project, please contact our crew manager Daisy – crew@looptalent.co.uk.
