The post-production industry plays a crucial supporting role in the content making process, as it encompasses some of the most important technical and creative elements that bring content to life. The emergence of OTT platforms, the rise of digital media-driven economies, and the establishment of modern multiplexes have opened up numerous avenues for the creation of employment. This industry has the potential of becoming a multi-billion-dollar industry in the near future by positioning Bangladesh as a global market player.

To help accelerate the growth of the post-production industry, the World Bank has launched “PostPro Talent Lab”- a 4-month workshop in partnership with Korea-World Bank Partnership Facility for the aspiring professionals in this field. The workshop will cover a range of post-production topics, particularly the technical ones such as editing, color grading and DI, sound design and mixing, and how it all relates to the creative vision of the content maker.

It is an exclusive opportunity for mid-career post-production professionals, such as: Colorists, Sound Designers, Editors, Directors, Cinematographers, etc. to enhance their skills and prepare themselves for the international market.

We encourage professionals of all backgrounds, including women and underrepresented groups, to apply!
