SAVANNAH — Savannah Technical College will join the Georgia Film Academy as one of four locations developing workers for the industry.

“Our commitment to students and to industry partners is to prepare students for careers with jobs that exist in our local economy, and we believe film production training with the Georgia Film Academy is an excellent complement to our hands-on learning tradition,” STC President Dr. Kathy Love said.

As a member of the academy, Savannah Tech will offer the academy’s two-course certification program to provide a basic level of on-set film production skills, knowledge and experience with film-industry standard organizational structure, professional equipment and on-set procedures.
In addition to the use of topical lectures, the course will include demonstrations of equipment and set operations as well as hands-on learning experiences.
