Hi, Stage 32!

I’m so excited to be joining this special community and to announce that the Savannah Regional Film Commission or SRFC and Stage 32 are collaborating to bring Certification opportunities to creative professionals in Savannah, Georgia!

If you live in Georgia and/or hope to work locally in the Savannah area, this is a great opportunity to make sure that you have the education needed to pursue your goals in production at a professional level. This is one of the opportunities that SRFC continues to utilize to help support our local creative professionals.

What is the Savannah Regional Film Commission?

The Savannah Regional Film Commission, an AFCI certified Film Commission, is the central point of contact for entertainment production in Savannah, Georgia. We promote the Savannah region as a premier film destination for motion picture, television, and commercial productions. Our office functions as a liaison between film companies and various municipalities in the Savannah region, while also providing location assistance and coordination with local crew and businesses.

Why I’m Excited About This Opportunity

“We are always looking for new opportunities for workforce development either in class or online and what sets Stage 32 apart is the commitment to the material, the caliber and experience of the teachers, and the convenience of being able to learn wherever there is an internet connection.”

Professional Script Supervisor Brianna Black’s Thoughts:

"It was very easy to understand and a great overview of the job. The instructor was clear with all of the subject matter and clarified any possible questions."
