The Mark Milsome Foundation is inspired by the achievements and character of our much-loved friend and colleague, Mark Milsome, who was killed while filming a car stunt in Ghana on 18 November 2017.
In view of the circumstances that surrounded Mark’s death, we are determined to educate and promote modern Health and Safety practice and to evolve in a way that best serves the scholars, the film and television industry and the memory of Mark Milsome. This includes supporting the requirement for a Level 2 Production Safety Passport for all those who work in the industry.
We will encourage those entering the industry for the first time, as well seasoned professionals, to take the Mark Milsome Foundation Film & TV Online Safety Passport course, providing a single training programme for the whole industry, delivering much needed continuity of education that can be referenced on set and during production.
We will also inspire, inform and support young people to consider a role in the film and television industry. The Foundation will help young people overcome the challenges of finding work experience, mentorship and eventual employment in an industry that is traditionally difficult to access without the benefit of insider contacts.
We will adapt and evolve within the restrictions of our charity to best serve the students, crew, production and British film and television industry, in honour of Mark Milsome.
