The South Carolina Film Commission (SCFC) and Trident Technical College (TTC) have teamed up to implement a Production Career Intern Program for residents beginning their careers in production. The program provides extensive hands-on training in a variety of departments on film and TV projects, supplying real-world experience and relationships with department heads and established crew.
Interns are placed on a rolling basis, will be paid an hourly wage, and are expected to work up to 60-hours a week for 4-6 weeks. Lodging, per diem, and other travel are typically not provided; Interns must have a place to stay in the shooting area of each project.
Below are more details on the program. Apply below.
- Applicants must be 18 years old or older.
- Applicants do NOT have to be currently enrolled at TTC or any other education institution to be eligible.
- Any current South Carolina resident with some professional experience as outlined in their submitted resume is eligible. Resume MUST also include a reference from at least one production professional.
- Interns select their preferences for department in the application and will be matched to that department where possible.
- Start dates will be determined by the schedule of participating Productions and the availability of selected candidates. Those could occur any time during the year.
- Interns will be required to work 5-days a week for no more than 12-hours per day for up to 4-6 weeks. Exact schedule will depend on final production schedule and Productions’ needs. Interns will be paid $10/hour by TTC.
- Interns will be overseen by a direct supervisor on each Production and a TTC Intern Coordinator. Any Intern can be terminated by Production at any time for any reason sufficiently related to poor performance.
PLEASE NOTE: By agreement with participating Productions, only Interns with some production experience will be placed. All candidates must show some production experience and core production competencies on their required resume.
The South Carolina Film Commission has teamed up with The Costuming Academy for a comprehensive, on-line training on COSTUMING for the production industry. Upon completion, trainees will leave with first-day confidence, knowing the language of a Costumer and understand the skills being used, whether they’re starting as a PA or an entry-level Costumer.
The training is free and open to any qualified South Carolina resident.
