The Department of Theatre and Film at the University of Alaska Fairbanks hosts a film production to be shot with local and national professionals, providing an On the Job Training environment. Learn the mechanics of a working film set both behind and in front of the camera. Students will be mentored in all departments on set, gaining employable skills and experience while making a movie!
Many of our 2013 F.R.A.M.E. students received job offers for work in film and television in Alaska after taking this course. Don't let the employment opportunities pass YOU by!
Classes begin at 8am on May 27. This course will operate like a standard film set, running all days of the week for 12 hours a day. Students will be provided 2 meals per day and transportation from campus to set. Times wil be dictated by the film's production schedule.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A STUDENT ALREADY TO TAKE FRAME, AND THERE'S NO PRE-REQUISITES TO SIGN UP FOR THE 298 LEVEL.
There are a few tuition grants available on a first-come, first-serve basis. SO REGISTER FOR THE COURSE AND APPLY SOON! (If you received a grant for this class last year, you are not eligible.)

Each student applying for the grant must complete the application and return it with copies of two pieces of ID .e.g.The State of Alaska ID card/driver’s license and a copy of social security card AND a copy of your Student Detail Schedule and Fee Statement.
The application and documents 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. Missy will notify you directly if you will be getting a tuition grant.
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).
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.
