HAMDEN — State funding is in place for Quinnipiac University to offer the fourth Connecticut Film Industry Training Program. Classes, which begin June 6, are available only to Connecticut residents. The program is designed for individuals who want to learn the basics of feature and episodic television film production and pursue entry-level freelance work in the industry. Classes will be taught by motion-picture professionals who have significant career experience and are active members of the motion picture trade union related to the skills they teach.

Areas of specialization include assistant directing, location management, production office coordination, script supervision, lighting and grip, camera, sound, props and set dressing, and wardrobe.
