If you live in Georgia you know how big Georgia film has become. Ant-Man and the Wasp just opened with nearly $80 million and the box office and it was primarily filmed in the peach state.
What you might not know is we also have the Georgia Film Academy, which has a goal of meeting the industry needs by providing hands-on training and education for the industry.
The industry is difficult to break into. You need a very specific set of skills, and there’s no time for learning on the job. This is why the GFA exists. Its goal is to train students on the same sets they’d work on for real television and movie productions.
The instructors have years of real-work experience and the GFA production certification includes 18 credit hours where you can specify tracks of your choosing:
- Lighting and electric
- Post production (editing)
- Production accounting
- Set construction/scenic painting
- Grip and rigging
- Intro to Special Make-up Effects
