"Made in NY" Production Program

This was posted today on the web site.

March 4, 2010 - The “Made in NY” Production Crafts Training Program aims to help women, minority and struggling New Yorkers prepare for advanced careers in film and television production. The first class will focus on training individuals in the grip department. Future classes will provide training for other departments such as camera and electric.

Interested applicants for the grip training can attend a recruitment event on Friday, March 19 at 1pm at New York City College of Technology, Klitgord Auditorium at 285 Jay Street on the corner of Tillary Street, Brooklyn.

Participants of the pilot “Made in NY” Production Crafts Training Program this spring will be taught technical skills by members of the International Alliance of Theatrical & Stage Employees and taught production basics and job readiness skills. Guest instructors will teach other skills such as rigging and dolly operation in the grip department. All participating trainees will be provided with a year of job placement assistance.

Ideal candidates are individuals who have shown their commitment to working in TV and film production for at least one year, as well as display an active interest for the grip department, but who now lack the opportunity to enter and advance in union positions.

If you wish to apply for the program, you are required to attend the March 19 recruitment event, where you can apply on site for the program.
