Lights! Camera! CT's film-media training call

Connecticut is reopening casting calls to aspiring film, TV and digital-media industry workers for its fifth annual training program that starts June 4 at Quinnipiac University in Hamden.

The program is only open to Connecticut residents to develop the skills necessary for working in the state's rapidly growing film, television, and digital media industry.

Training will be offered in assistant directing, production office coordination, script supervision, lighting and grip, camera, sound, and props and set dressing.

Graduates will receive a certificate of completion from the state's Office of Film, Television, and Digital Media.

The program is taught by working motion picture professionals from Connecticut and the greater NYC area, and covers the basics of feature and episodic television production.

Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m., May 31 and accepted applicants will be notified via email or telephone. Each student pays a $500 application fee which is used to support overall program costs.
