CFCC Film and Video Production Technology students gain first-hand experience through partnership
Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) Film and Video Production Technology students are honing their skills in a real-world setting thanks to the Film Partnership of North Carolina’s film workforce training initiative. Under this unique program, students receive hands-on training from industry professionals while being compensated through a grant.
The Film Partnership of North Carolina’s grant has enabled these students to fully immerse themselves in their craft without the financial burden often accompanying such professional training. As a result, they can focus entirely on their creative growth and skill development.
“We are excited to witness the growth and progress of these talented students as they take this journey into the world of film and video production,” said Susi Hamilton, President and CEO of the Film Partnership of North Carolina. “The Cape Fear Community College students are professional, well-trained, and responsive and respectful of not only the staff they are working with but the whole production process.”
Since March 2022, CFCC students have trained on live film and television production sets and live theatre productions at the Wilson Center. Most recently, Cape Fear Community College students assisted in a live production stunt scene at Dark Horse Studios that coincided with the groundbreaking ceremony announcing their 40,000-square-foot expansion. Despite the current writer’s guild and actors’ strikes, the Film Partnership of NC brought twelve idled film professionals to help train the students.
