Universal's Abigail Partners with Screen Ireland on Below-the-Line Traineeship

May 14, 2024


Universal partnered with Screen Ireland, the national screen development agency, on the latest cycle of the Traineeship on ‘Abigail’, after its successful partnership with the organization on 2023’s ‘Cocaine Bear’. Five trainees across costume, art department, production office and set decoration, as well as an assistant director trainee were given the opportunity to be mentored for the entire duration of the production. 

Launched in 2021, Universal’s Below-the-Line Traineeship provides on and off-the-job training and mentorship across select below-the-line departments on NBCUniversal film and TV projects around the world. With the increasing demand for experienced craft talent and artisans throughout the industry, this innovative and immersive experience cultivates the next generation of costume designers, prop masters, camera operators, technicians and the myriad of roles crucial to any production team by collaborating with local partners to source up-and-coming talent.
