Creative Media Skills was born in 2012 when CEO Ailie Smith, noticed a gap in the industry for a platform where professionals could learn from experts to practise and enhance their skills. Straight off the back of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ in Africa, Ailie took her 15 years of experience and contacts and decided to bring the biggest names from behind the scenes in movies – heads of departments who are renown and respected in the industry – under one roof with the aim of giving them a platform to pass on their lifelong skills, knowledge and hands-on tutoring to the next generation.
What followed showed that Ailie was right to bring together working crew members and the people they look up to and want to learn from the most; the legendary names in the specifics of hair, makeup, costume, props, greens, stunts, art department and more.
Creative Media Skills is now a strong and dynamic business with hubs at both Pinewood Studios in buckinghamshire and Pinewood Studio Wales. Since the company incorporation in 2012 CMS have trained over 800 participants across the UK and have seen over 200 of them go on to work on over 43 of the largest scale films made in the UK such as Spectre, Exodus, Avengers Age of Ultron, Cinderella, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation and Pan to name only a few.
