What is a Below-The-Line Job?
Our training at FITS focuses on what are called “below-the-line” jobs. Just what are these jobs? These are the jobs that have to be done to turn a script into a movie. Ask yourself, who actually sets up all those lights? Who makes sure all the costumes are ready? Who keeps everyone fed? Who does all the billion and one essential jobs that have to be done to actually make a movie?
You can be sure that it’s not the actors. Or the directors. Or the producers. It’s the production assistants, the costume coordinators, the production coordinators.
So, wherever you are on your path to a film industry career, we can help open the doors. Start by exploring one of these career paths.
Watch the Credits
The next time you watch a movie, take a close look at the credits – not the ones at the beginning. The ones at the end. Look at the hundreds and hundreds of people who work on a film. Look at the job titles. These are the people that make a movie happen. And these are where the jobs are in the film industry.
How do I Start?
You can take your first step towards a career in the film industry this very moment – and it won’t cost you a dime.
How? Read through the descriptions of each of the careers we offer training for. You’ll learn more about what each of these jobs is like and learn which one is the best place for you to start.
What Can I do After That?
Our trainers are living their dreams of working in the film industry. Take a look at their bios – then be sure to follow the links to their IMDB pages. Look at all those films they have worked on. Look at the kinds of exciting jobs they have done. Look at the amazing people they have worked with.
