THE ACADEMY AT SYRACUSE STUDIOS

The Academy at Syracuse Studios is committed to creating a sustainable ecosystem of skilled film crew in Central New York. The best way to learn is to do, and that’s what The Academy is all about: providing opportunities that no other program can. Here you’re not just a student, you’re crew!

Throughout the year, the Academy hosts training seminars for film professionals in the Syracuse area, including classes on Grip and Electric in collaboration with IATSE 52 as well as Scenic/Industrial workshops with Local 829. In addition, the Academy also offers a variety of Master Classes and film production related workshops to the community.
