Film Crew Intensive Training
Next session runs Jan. 17 - Feb. 24, 2023. Previous experience not required.
The Film Crew Intensive Training is a six-week course that provides condensed hands-on training by industry professionals, giving students the knowledge and exposure needed to acquire an entry-level position on film and media sets in Northeast Ohio. The last week of the workshop, students work on a professionally led film set, which can be used on a resume as their first film credit.
The course is a great way to network with industry professionals and fellow film production students, while helping to build a quality film workforce ─ a key component in maintaining a vibrant film industry throughout the region and state.
