For a week in June I worked, as an actor of course =p, at the CT Film Industry Training Program (CT FITP) on the Quinnipiac University campus and recorded daily videos that run approximately 1 minute long. The goal was to provide some behind the scenes information on the program, the shoot and to engage with anyone interested in filmmaking.
It was also an experiment to stream line my CAST TO CURTAIN webseries workflow – primarily the editing part of the processing.
The film, A-1 Quality Entertainment, is in post-production and will be completed (hopefully) before the year ends.
The program has run for 4 years at QU and appears to be on the chopping block due to budget issues in CT. If you are a resident and believe that filmmaking is important to the future of Connecticut’s economy please contact your elected official by phone, email, mail, etc. to tell them you support the program. Without the support of CT citizens the program will be likely be cut from the next budget.
Fore more on what the CT FITP is please visit the CT FITP website.
Without further ado…
