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.
Apply below for the South Carolina Film Commission's three-day FILM ELECTRICIAN TRAINING, taking place March 22-24 at High Output in Charleston, SC.
Brought to you by the South Carolina Film Commission, Trident Technical College, and High Output, the program is free for eligible South Carolina residents.
Led by Gaffer John David Reynolds and a team of experienced Production Electricians, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to the workings of an Electric Department for Film and Television.
Please review the application below and only apply if you meet all criteria and are serious about becoming a Set or Rigging Electrician on Film and Video Productions. Trainees must have some professional production and/or electrical experience.
Film & Video Production incorporates hundreds of skills many have already learned in other occupations and industries, so is ideal for workers seeking second careers, military veterans, and those entering the workforce.
Once completed, trainees will be eligible for placement on Film, TV and Commercial internships through SCFC’s Statewide Production Intern Program. (Placement is not guaranteed.)
In order to qualify, you must:
- Be a current South Carolina resident.
- Be 18-years-old or over.
- Have some on-set experience and/or professional experience related to electrical work.
- Be able to commit to attending all three days of the training.
- Be able to complete all task types in the ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS section of the application below.
Space is limited and slots are NOT guaranteed. Not everyone who applies will be enrolled. Only those willing to commit to completing the training and are serious about a career in professional Electrical Departments should apply.
APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL MARCH 19, 2024. PLEASE NOTE: Slots may be assigned before applications are closed on March 19, to give selected trainees ample time to schedule travel, etc. We’ll make every effort to keep slots open up to March 19, but there is no guarantee and completing your application as soon as possible is recommended.
