Meet the Head of the MFJF Academy

Nicole Payson

Head of the MFJF Academy

The two main parts of my job as the Head of the My First Job In Film Academy involves liaising with productions to find out what staff they need, roles such as PAs and Trainees, and put forward MFJF Members for these positions. Secondly, organize and run workshops and networking events for MFJF Members.

Please click here for my full bio.

Please get in touch with me if you are looking for a career in production or have questions about our workshops and events. I am always available for conversations via our Facebook Group:

"The Academy day with MFJF was fantastic, the company really made a sincere effort to aid young filmmakers such as myself and give them a foothold with individuals in the industry who we might not have been able to access previously."

"The first MFJF Academy day was a fantastic opportunity to network alongside fellow members, converse about similar work experiences and express shared passions for Film and TV, while also learning from experienced producers."

"I feel like MFJF is a very nurturing environment, I'm here at the Academy day and they want to learn about us. I've been asked questions "what do you want" and "how can we help you?" so again,  with all the advice and the jobs, specifically for people with less experience, it's a very good place to go."

"Don't be shy. All you can do is ask for opportunities, and they might say no and the world carries on. So don't be shy, get in there and get stuck in."
