Apprenticeships

"After graduating from the Filmmaking Intensive, I feel thoroughly equipped to pursue videography and narrative filmmaking.  Both the enthusiastic staff and my fellow aspiring filmmakers have jump-started my confidence and hunger for years of meaningful collaboration with people who truly care just as much as I do."
-Jason Sealy, Filmmaking Intensive graduate


Students completing all the requirements of the program are immediately eligible (for up to six months after graduation) for an apprenticeship program.  This is an optional, no-cost career guidance program. The School agrees to make attempts to place the apprenticeship participant in an internship (usually unpaid) with a professional media production agency or refer participants to paid media production work positions, either temporary or permanent, as such positions arise during the apprenticeship period. 

In addition, the School will provide the following services which the participant may take advantage of: interview coaching, portfolio review, providing a job reference, invitation to a networking event and a one-year, full-access membership to Pittsburgh Filmmakers.  The School does not guarantee placement in an internship or paid position, as the hiring decisions for such positions are made by agencies other than the School.
