Atlanta Metro Studios, the Fulton County school system and Union City recently announced a pilot-program collaboration aimed getting more students into the film industry.

Considered the first of its kind to address the growing film and media employment needs in Georgia, the partnership is funding tuition for as many as six 2015 Fulton high school graduates and enroll them in Clayton State University’s digital film crew training program.

Those recieving the funding are slated to come from Fulton schools surrounding the Atlanta Metro Studios site at the old Shannon Mall in Union City.

The program trains students on professional equipment, orients them to all the jobs and procedures on film sets and places them on the crews of independent productions in the Atlanta area during the two-semester course schedule.
