Many prospective film and television professionals attend school or technical training before trying to break into “the biz.” However, few of these hopefuls are really equipped to function in production when they graduate. Why? Because technical training and theory doesn’t equal know-how.
At the completion of your training, you will have worked on programs seen by millions—not just student projects. You will have earned real broadcast credits and experience to put on your resume. You will have worked on a short film. You’ll have a reel. En route to being ready for hire, you can gain training and experience in producing, directing, writing, post-production, photography, lighting, audio production, graphic/effects design, or 3D animation.
However, the stuff not spelled out in the script is equally important. Success in the real world includes being able to people-manage, understand the business, and having a can’t-be-stopped determination to get the job done. CCM prepares you to be ready for immediate hire on real-world production staffs.
