Connecticut just launched a Film Training Program, a course available at three universities in the state.
Hurry up and apply, because the deadline is June 30!
From the Guv’s press release:
The training program curriculum is as follows:
Phase I: Production Overview (July 7 to 19, Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) – A comprehensive production overview and survey of job categories in the feature film industry. Upon successful completion of this introductory course, students will be encouraged to continue to Phase II.
Phase II: Concentrated Training (July 28 to Aug. 8, Mon.-Fri. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) – Each student will pursue his/her selected area of concentration during intensive, hands-on training in the classroom, studio and on location. Areas of specialization are: production management, location management, production office coordination, lighting and grip, camera, sound, property, set dressing, set construction and wardrobe. At the end of Phase II, students will receive a certificate of completion from CCT’s Film Division.
Phase III: On-Set Mentorship (Dates and times will vary) – Certified trainees may receive up to 10 weeks of on-set mentorship, working alongside department heads and crew members on a feature film or episodic television project shooting in-state. Opportunities for Phase 3 participation are dependent on the cooperation of producers and union representatives and on the shooting schedules of participating productions. On-set mentorship will take place throughout the year.
