Film Careers under the Spotlight

CIIB Film Workshop participants.

This week we tell you how to have fun and make money working in the film industry, then GIS Spotlight shows you a day in the life of three artists, and finally we tour Public Works' new state-of-the-art training and resources centre.

Our first stop is the Cayman Islands Investment Bureau's Film Commission Workshop. Find out what it takes to get a job in the glitzy film industry. We talk to the experts on what you'll need to break into the film industry. We also interview hopefuls on following their dreams and we speak to CIIB Director Dax Basdeo on plans to establish Cayman as a film destination.

Ever wondered how artists create their masterpieces? Solve the mystery and drop in at the National Gallery for A Day in the Life II.

After a successful inaugural run in 2008, the Gallery has once again invited three new artists to participate in this in-house residency programme and exhibition.

So come with us as we visit Nickola McCoy (sculpture and installation), David Bridgeman (multi media) and Kaitlyn Elphinstone (photography and conceptual art). See how they design, paint and shape their artwork. A Day in the Life II ends 12 June.

Our last stop is at Public Work's new state-of-the-art training and resource centre on the department's North Sound Road compound.

Find out how staff will benefit from this technology-driven centre with its dedicated information technology area and well-stocked resource centre with reading and reference materials.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme airs on Mondays at 6:30 pm on Cayman27, and again on Thursdays at 7:30 pm on Island24. All the stories seen in this week's edition can also be found on YouTube.
