MultiChoice brings talent incubator for Mzansi’s young content creators
As part of its continued commitment to uplift the youth, MultiChoice is launching an incubator programme, Studio Reach, which aims to unlock the next generation of digital video content creators.
MultiChoice is looking for 10 video content creators native to the TikTok platform and between the ages of 18-35. The content creators chosen will become part of the MultiChoice ‘Studio Reach incubator’, an online content creation program in which they will learn digital storytelling skills, business skills, connect with other creators, and a one-year subsidized internship with MultiChoice brands which will run from 20 June 2022 to 20 June 2023.
The programme will engage young creative digital thinkers to produce digital first content in line with future thinking and social trends.
“It is our continued commitment to enrich lives, and this programme aims to do just that. We are excited to bring this programme to life and work hand in hand with up-and-coming content creators in honing their skillsets,” says Collen Dlamini, group executive for Corporate Affairs at MultiChoice.
“There is an abundance of untapped creatives amongst our nation’s youth, who only need a springboard to showcase their skills. MultiChoice wants to offer a hand up to help kick-start the careers for 10 young creatives, giving them the opportunity to improve their abilities as digital content creators,” explains Dlamini.
The chosen content creators will become part of the MultiChoice Studio Reach incubator, an online content creation programme. Here, they will learn digital storytelling skills, business skills, get the opportunity to connect with other creators, and obtain a one-year subsidised internship with Multichoice brands which will run from 20 June 2022 to 20 June 2023.
