Fayette schools plan more film courses

Fayette County’s public schools plan to expand career pathways for students interested in careers in film, television and theater.

Representatives from the county and the Georgia Film Academy outlined proposed courses at the Board of Education’s April 9 work session, noting the potential for thousands of such jobs in the state. High school career pathways would include dramatic writing, animation and digital media, and audio & video technology & film. Teacher training will begin in June in Fayetteville and Savannah; classes will be held at the Center of Innovation in Fayetteville, using software and industry-standard equipment provided to the county.

Details will be announced later this year.
