What is Film Crew 101: Certification?
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.
When you sign up for certification, you'll get access to all our current episodes (many of which will not be available publicly for some time) and get access to our online tests around each department to prove that you understand what the various roles do and how they interact with others.
Why Get Certified?
One of the biggest concerns for any producer or unit production manager giving someone their first job on a film or TV set is "Will they understand what all the different crew members do and what is going to be required of them in their new role".
When you have Film Crew 101 Certification, you are able to prove that you understand all the different roles on a film, the key lingo used to quickly communicate, and more importantly you'll understand any of the roles they put you in so you can hit the ground running.
With Film Crew 101: Certification, you'll be positioning yourself ahead of everyone else wanting to get their first job on a major movie or TV series.
How Do I Get Certified?
To get certified, we'll give you access to all our current Film Crew 101 episodes - many of which will not yet be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify etc. All you have to do is listen to each episode and then take a multiple choice quiz around each department to demonstrate that you fully understand all the roles in that department.
Once you pass each departments quiz you'll get certified and we'll send you a certificate! Simple as that.
