More about the foundation: 


The Mark Milsome Foundation is inspired by the achievements, character and unique nature of our respected friend and colleague, Mark Milsome who was killed behind his camera whilst filming a car stunt in Ghana 18th November 2017.

We are a non profit registered UK charity which aims to support, encourage and inspire young people, initially through two scholarship programmes, and to raise awareness of the importance of Health and Safety in the Film and Television Industry.

We have established one scholarship in advance of our launch via the Guild of British Camera Technicians Training Programme and will announce a second early in 2019 that will support deserving Film Students to secure mentorship and work experience.

We have taken our core values and ambitions as a charity from the example set by Mark Milsome and believe opportunities should be open to men and women who prove they have the character, determination and focus needed to thrive in the industry.

We will encourage young people from all parts of the UK, all social and economic backgrounds, all levels of academic achievement, whether from obscurity or from a recognised educational programme to work with us. We will require evidence of genuine passion and a strong work ethic before considering anyone to be deserving of support or scholarships in Mark’s name.

As an organisation we are open to exploring other areas, including furthering health and safety, and will evolve in any way that best serves the scholars, the Film and Television Industry and the memory of Mark Milsome.
