The second year of a program designed to train people for jobs in the film industry kicks off this summer.
Applications for the “Summer Film Industry Training Program” are due April 22.
Here’s a snyopsis:
The training program is offered at three sites: Middlesex Community College in Middletown, Quinnipiac University in Hamden and Norwalk Community College in Norwalk. The program is designed for individuals who want to learn the basics of feature film and episodic television production and potentially pursue entry-level freelance work in the industry. Trainees also learn about union membership, which is required to work on the majority of large productions coming to the state.
More information about the program, including a course overview and an application are available here.
