SABC’s Uzalo Season 2 - Trainee Opportunities

Stained Glass Productions which produces the daily telenovela, Uzalo, for SABC 1 will be training six young Durban filmmakers during its second season of filming in KwaMashu, Durban. Durban Film Office responsible for development of the local film and television industry, in partnership with Stained Glass Productions, have introduced a Trainee Development Programme for the youth of Ethekwini Municipality in a number of areas of film-making.

These interns will be trained sound, camera, make-up and hair, art department assistant, production assistant and wardrobe over a period of six months.

 “We have committed to supporting the production of the highly successful TV show, Uzalo, as part of the overall endeavor to grow Durban as a film city.” says Deputy Mayor of the eThekwini Municipality, Cllr Nomvuso Shabalala. “As we have seen in other growth areas of film, a vital part of the development of the industry is to ensure that we have sufficiently trained people on the ground to support the needs of the production houses that aim to establish themselves here or that will be producing within the city on location. We are really pleased to be able to offer six young Durban candidates an opportunity to learn with a team on such a successful formula, and look forward to seeing the results of this process.”
