Tom Leighton Shoot Prep

Apprentice Program

Gates & Greene has a mission to train young adults from underserved communities in New York City to produce high-quality digital video and photo content. Our aim is to create an industry of visual storytellers reflective of the diversity of voices in our world. 

Our apprentice program combines the features of a film school, production company, and job placement program. We train semi-experienced filmmakers ages 18-24, without charge, to create high-quality short documentaries. Graduates of our free workshops are then eligible for paid work as video production apprentices.

The education is practical and designed to create well-rounded filmmakers. This training is provided in a safe “classroom” environment, furthered in preparation for actual projects, then cemented on the job. If you're between the ages of 18-24, have skills in video production, possess a strong-work ethic, and are interested in finding out more about our apprentice opportunities, send us an email at or fill out the form below.
