Level UP Program

Access Reelworld and Rogers Sports & Media

Level UP is an on-the-ground experience developed in partnership with Rogers Sports & Media for Canadian writers and directors. Selected writers will spend four weeks of the program working remotely in the show’s virtual writers room, and one week on set learning about changes made to various drafts of the scripts while experiencing the collaborative nature of television production and understanding the importance of each department. Also, two directors will be chosen to shadow a director on the Hudson & Rex set for four weeks. The directors will participate in production meetings with the various departments; observing the casting process, location scouting, tech scouting; and having direct contact with the director during their day-to-day interactions with key crew. A $3500 honorarium will be paid to each participant. Travel and accommodation will be provided.

Program sponsors for this year are Shaftesbury and Pope Productions, producers of the hit Citytv series Hudson & Rex. All applicants are required to register on Access Reelworld; profile links must be included on the application form. The deadline to apply is June 25th.
