Alaska Film Training Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks
FILM REEL ALASKA MENTORSHIP EXPERIENCE
Tuesday May 26- Saturday June 14, 2014
UAF will host a film production to be shot with local and national professionals providing an On the Job Training (OJT) environment. Students will be able to progress through an entire project from start to finish, and understand the mechanics of a working film set both behind and in front of the camera. By providing a “working classroom” with hands-on training, students will gain valuable knowledge while working with mentors in key positions.
REGISTER for 3 credits of either:
Film 298 Undergraduate Research
Film 498 Undergraduate Research
Registration available at https://uaonline.alaska.edu.
Classes begin at 8AM on 5/26 and run MTWRFS for 12 hours a day. This coure will operate like a standard film set, and provide meals every six hours of work. Transportation provided. Hours wil be dictated by Film production schedule.
Each student that wants to apply for the grant must complete the application and return it with a copy of two pieces of ID. The State of Alaska ID card/driver’s license and a copy of their social security card is the usual IDs used.
The purpose of collecting the IDs are to #1 prove Alaska residency and #2 prove that the applicant is legal to work in the US. A US birth certificate and/or current passport may also work. A safe bet is to follow the IRS I-9 instructions (ID that you present prior to beginning a new job).
The application and ID’s can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to 907-451-2877, sent through the US mail (Career Development Specialist III, Career Support & Training Services Supervisor, Fairbanks Job Center, 675 Seventh Ave., Station B, Fairbanks, AK 99701) or can be hand-delivered to Missy Lizotte at Station B in the Fairbanks Regional Office Building.
A few things to remember…
Completed/signed application and appropriate IDs should be completed sooner, rather than later.
When copying IDs, if possible, please enlarge to at least 200% and, if necessary, lighten the image. It is important that all information on the ID be able to be read to be utilized – often when such things are faxed or scanned the image that is produced is much darker than the original.
Please ensure that there is a good contact number on the application so that the applicant can be contacted if there are any questions or problems with the application/IDs.
