With tax breaks and incentives luring filmmakers to the state, West Shore Community College and 10 West Studios have partnered to offer a film production training program to prepare area residents for jobs in the film industry.
And the training is free, thanks to a federal grant.
After completion of the programs, students will be able to apply for various positions with film companies leading to acceptance in a union apprenticeship program. Those positions include entry-level grip, entry-level electrician, third prop, set dresser, set decorator, scenic artist, painter, prop maker and swing gang.
