The Georgia Film Academy trains thousands of filmmakers right across the street from the biggest movie studio in our state, Now, there is a new program reaching out to high schoolers to teach them how fun filmmaking can be.
“What I’m really excited about is how enthusiastic these students are about embracing the great entertainment industry here in Georgia,” said Jeffrey Stepakoff, Executive Director for the Georgia Film Academy.
Nearly 80 students were specially selected from around 40 high schools across the state by a group called “21st Century Leaders” to learn more about the academy and jobs in the film industry.
“So we’re really helping them identify what their passion is and then help them think about a career or industry they may not have thought about before,” said Kate Hewitt, Executive Director of 21st Century Leaders. See more at Fox 5.
