Welcome to Film Crew 101, a new Podcast series that launches on the 1st September 2020, where we pull back the curtain on all the different roles that go into making a film or TV show. Ever wondered what a Gaffer or Best Boy does? Have you dreamt about working in the art department of a major movie but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you are well on your way building a career in film and TV but want to get more insight into how other departments work. Film Crew 101 has all the answers.
If you are interested in a career in Film & TV or looking to grow your existing career further, this podcast is for you.
This podcast comes from the Oklahoma Film & TV Academy whose mission is to create a set ready workforce for Oklahoma so we can build our industry, diversify our economy, and provide stable, high paying, jobs for Oklahomans.
The content of each podcast is not Oklahoma specific but applies to film and TV productions around the globe. If a position is credited on a movie, we've sought out an experienced professional who has built a successful career in that role.
Film Crew 101: Certification is an extension of the free Podcast series "Film Crew 101" (available on apple, spotify, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts). Each episode pulls back the curtain on all the different roles that go into making a film or TV show from Gaffer's to Best Boy's and First Assistant Director's to Second Second Assistant Director's.
If you have ever dreamt about working in film and television but don’t know where to start, we invite you to get certified with Film Crew 101.
