“Our mission is to promote increased media production in Northeast Ohio using effective strategies for attraction and workforce development. While our interns assist with pre-production work and we often promote local workshops and job opportunities, the training they receive from FilmSkills is by far the most comprehensive. Our students love the convenience of being able to move at their own pace and their ability to study anywhere with an Internet connection. We’re very pleased with the extensive course content and continual platform updates.”

“Creating a certification program to supply crew to Kentucky’s Film Incentive only became a possibility because of FilmSkills. They provided the platform and content that would have taken us years to produce. Without FilmSkills, the certification probably never would have launched due to the sheer amount of work and infrastructure required. But their platform and content saved us years of work. The state’s film incentive will be successful because of our partnership with FilmSkills in this process.”
