Central Florida Film Production Technology Training Program. Curriculum.
Valencia Community Coll., Orlando, FL.; Universal Studios Florida, Orlando.
The Central Florida Film Production Technology Training program provided training to prepare 134 persons for employment in the motion picture industry. Students were trained in stagecraft, sound, set construction, camera/editing, and post production. The project also developed a curriculum model that could be used for establishing an Associate in Science degree in film production technology, unique in the country. The project was conducted by a partnership of Universal Studios Florida and Valencia Community College. The course combined hands-on classroom instruction with participation in the production of a feature-length film. Curriculum development involved seminars with working professionals in the five subject areas, using the Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) process. This curriculum guide for the 15-week course outlines the course and provides information on film production careers. It is organized in three parts. Part 1 includes brief job summaries of many technical positions within the film industry. Part 2 details specific skills and broad competencies that every employee new to the film industry should have. Part 3 is divided into six sections, one for each of six crafts or disciplines (camera, sound, editing, set construction, gripping, electric). Each section begins with a chart showing the lines of responsibility within each discipline. Following the charts, sections include a list of competencies and skills for each major position within that department. (KC)
