Interested in the growing Georgia film industry, but don't know where to start or fit in? This class walks you through the basic duties, responsibilities, and hierarchy of each department working on a film set, introduces you to basic production lingo, and offers advise on how your past work experience, hobbies, or natural abilities may be a transitioning entry point. Long hours, a strong work ethic, and a good attitude are needed to survive as a freelancer, and this class can help you determine whether you have the ability, talent, and discipline to more forward with a career in this industry.

This Introduction to Film Business workshop is part of the Atlanta Film Society's year-round slate of programming curated and presented to our Atlanta audience in service of our mission: to lead the community in creative and cultural discovery through the moving image.
