60% of the film industry started as a runner. 80% of the film industry is employed freelance. Booking our freelance runners will help establish a fairer system for people to enter the freelance market. We recruit all our runners based on a solid work ethic, a great attitude and a desire to work in film. They just don’t know someone to help them get a start.
Just Runners represents a new group of selected runners every six months, all from backgrounds other than the usual. It’s founder, Paul McLoone, has connected with programs such as the BFI, Creative Skillset and Prince’s Trust and made sure that the group have a strong interest in the industry already. After a gruelling few days of bootcamp style training, Paul ensures the runners feel confident when they step on set, helping them tackle the little obstacles that might trip them up on their first days.
Just Runners has it’s first group of 20 enthusiastic people selected and getting on their first professional sets. They come from various backgrounds but are all keen to put their new skills to the test.
Just Runners operates with the support of many APA members already such as 1stAveMachine, Bare, Blink, Fat Lemon, Partizan, Prettybird, Rattling Stick & Stink.
Employers are the key to creating inclusiveness in the film industry. Just Runners understand that employers can not realistically invest the time needed to research grassroots positions. Just Runners is here to do that for you. We recruit all our runners based on a solid work ethic, a great attitude and a desire to work in film. They just don’t know someone to help them get a start.
