Film, Television & Digital Entertainment Internship/Apprenticeship

For Students

The Film, Television & Digital Entertainment Internship/Apprenticeship courses are a 6-credit hour option as a part of 18 hours of coursework offered by a consortium of Georgia institutions that satisfies requirements for the Georgia Film Academy (GFA) Certification. The course is designed to provide students with a basic level of skills in film & television production, post-production, and digital entertainment & Esports. Once you are placed into an Internship/Apprenticeship, you will have an opportunity to network and to learn the skills that will help you to integrate into the film, television and digital entertainment industry as entry-level workers.

Because the Internship/Apprenticeship courses are a competitive program, not everyone is guaranteed a spot. Here are just some of the shows and companies with which our students have trained: Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther 2, Spiderman, Thor, Antman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Coming to America 2, I, Tonya, Jungle Cruise, Lady and the Tramp, Godzilla, The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, MacGyver, Black Lightning, Originals, Ozark, Moonshine Post, Deluxe-Company 3, Axis Replay, and Skillshot Media.

How it Works

The GFA internships/apprenticeships are available ONLY to GFA students who have successfully completed at least 12 units, or two required classes in their GFA certification track. These students who have completed an introductory course ( GFA 1000, 1040, or 1500) with a “B” or above AND a specialty craft course with a “B” or above are eligible to apply for the internship/apprenticeship.

After completing these courses, students will fill out an application for the upcoming internship/apprenticeship semester. Applications will be evaluated, and students will be notified as to whether they are eligible to register for the internship/apprenticeship course for the upcoming semester.
