Job: Theatre Cats is a stage school which opened in the Burton-on-Trent area in Staffordshire in January 2008. They require a freelance teacher to deliver performing arts classes in nearby Uttoxeter (£10 – £12 per hour depending on age and experience). Theatre Cats currently offers classes to children aged 5-16, however, the aim is to also introduce classes for 2-5 year olds. You must be comfortable in teaching drama, movement and musical theatre. The children take examinations in Trinity, and so they will also need to be coached in this. Candidates will be invited to teach a 15 minute class prepared by the candidate which will then be followed by an interview. The classes were established in September 2009, and run on Friday evenings in Uttoxeter during term time. Hours are 5-9pm. Interested? Contact Theatre Cats on 0845 003 8230 or email:

Development funding has become available from European funding agency Media Desk, for the… “development of single projects or slates of projects” in “fiction, creative documentary or animation.” They have £15.5m of taxpayer’s money to spend, and can give grants of roughly £9,000 to £55,000, with the exception of development of animation feature-length projects for cinema release — for which a maximum of 80,000 Euros is available. Note this scheme is intended to fund the development of projects, not the actual production. It is aimed at reputable independent production companies who have produced at least one previous project which has been distributed recently, and who hold at least 50% of the IP rights to the project. Check your eligibility here. There is also a separate 2 million Euro funding scheme for the Development of Interactive Projects.
