About Us:

The Company

Ermine Street Project CIC is a Community Interest Company created to give those wishing to pursue a future in moving image production a springboard into their career.

The area east of the A1, from East Anglia through Lincolnshire to South Yorkshire are underused as a base for moving image production. Many creatives live or study here and we wish to keep them in the region. Our core aim is to create paid employment in an industry rife with unpaid work. We invest in the people that make it happen.
