Classroom Workshops

CFC Criteria: Provide students enrolled in an accredited community college a minimum of 8 hours of classroom workshops or demonstrations on aspects of the film industry, including set operations, post- production, and specific technical crafts conducted by entertainment industry professionals.

Dan Says: Help students and instructors create a more effective classroom experience. Industry professionals are invited to give guest lectures, in-class demonstrations, or career day presentations. Coming on campus to work with faculty and students is a rewarding way to share the expertise gained through years of industry experience.

  • Give a guest lecture
    • Example: A cinematographer visits a camera class and gives insights into new technologies being implemented in the camera department
  • Provide a classroom demonstration
    • Example: An editor shows students how to do parallel editing from three camera studio sessions
    • Example: A cameraman demonstrates the menu structure of a Red or Arri camera
