The GFA film production certificate is dedicated to training entry-level crew members (grips, sound, production assistants, art department, etc...) and workforce development. This program is not focused on content creation (writing, directing, producing, etc...), although content creators can benefit from the knowledge gained in this certificate.
Due to the high demand, we are having interested students apply to take the GFA courses at CSU's Film and Digital Media Center. Although we partner with the Georgia Film Academy, this application process is administered and processed by Clayton State University and is not administered nor processed by the Georgia Film Academy. Interested persons must submit an online application.
Equal Opportunity Statement:
Clayton State University and the Georgia Film Academy does and will comply with all applicable laws and policies regarding not discriminating on the basis of race, sex (including sexual harassment and pregnancy), gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity or national origin, religion, age, genetic information, disability or veteran status.
Is the application for the Georgia Film Academy (GFA) the same as applying to Clayton State University's academic program?
No. Applying to GFA is not an application to receive an academic degree from Clayton State University, but rather an application to the Georgia Film Academy program (film production) at CSU's Film and Digital Media Center in the Continuing and Professional Education division. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate from the Georgia Film Academy. If you are interested in pursuing a degree at Clayton State University, you may find more information at this link to the Office of Admissions www.clayton.edu/admissions
Why do you no longer have a wait list?
Due to the demand of the program, we had over 250 people on the waitlist for the Fall 2016 classes, for only 25-75 seats. In order to do a proper evaluation of all those interested, an application process was put in place.
I am a degree-seeking student at Clayton State University, do I need to apply?
No. This application process is only for people seeking to take the class through Continuing Education. If you are already enrolled at Clayton State, please contact Jonathan Harris at ext. 4716 for information about signing up for the course through your class registration.
When do I pay for the course?
Once you have applied and been accepted into the program, you will then need to pay to register for the course. From the date of acceptance, you will have 5 days to register and pay for the course. After 5 days, if you have not paid for the course, that seat could go to another potential student.
What days and times are the courses offered?
Class days and time are to be determined.
