New Orleans Video Access Center

The NOVAC Louisiana Film Crew Training Program (LFCTP) provides intensive job training and job placement services, free of charge, for people who want entry-level work in the thriving local Film and Television Production industry. There are two main training tracks to choose from: a four week, comprehensive grip and electric workshop taught by the IATSE Local 478 Union and a more generalized two week Production Assistant/Generalist curriculum taught by NOVAC. Applicants will need to decide ahead of time which training program they want to pursue and specify it in their application. Please refer to our FAQ to determine which training track is appropriate for you.

Training modules include a mandatory A.C.T. Work Keys Testing and Certification component, which is also offered free of charge. Depending on the schedule of Work Keys Testing and the course schedule being offered students can complete the training in as few as 5 and as many as 7 weeks for the Grip/Electric course and as few as 3 and as many as 5 weeks for the Production Assistant course. After students earn passing scores on the Work Keys tests and pass the film crew training program, they will be provided help in finding paid work in the Film and Television Production industry. All training and services related to the LFCTP will be offered at locations within the City of New Orleans.

Anyone, 18 years or older is eligible to participate in the Louisiana Film Crew Training Program although space is limited and students will be selected to participate through an application process. No prior experience is required and participants will be selected on the basis of several disparate factors such as demonstrated willingness to work, availability, geographic location (both before Hurricanes Katrina or Rita, or after), aggregate household income, first-come first-served, etc. Entry-level work in the industry can be grueling, with long hours, so we are encouraging only the most motivated people to apply.
