July 29 – August 2
Applications due July 13
NOVAC, Film New Orleans, Film Jefferson, the UNO Foundation and Spectrum FX are partnering to offer a free 5-day hands-on seminar in feature film practical special effects to locals interested in getting a foot in the booming film production industry. From July 29 – August 2, twenty locals will get the chance to work with veteran Effects Coordinator Matt Kucher and his team at Spectrum FX (Beautiful Creatures, Dan of the Planet of the Apes, Bonnie & Clyde) to learn the basics of creating the incredible effects in front of the camera that make movies come to life.
Participants will learn on-set safety, atmospherics, introductory pyrotechnics, model creation and more. NOVAC will then work with the candidates to place them in jobs in art and effects departments on feature film productions throughout the region.
