Production Fair (Fall and Spring)

Each semester, production fairs pair directors with the crew they need and give students a chance to learn a variety of technical roles.

Making costume adjustments on set

At production fairs, new and experienced students get together to work on each others’ film crews. These productions give students the opportunity to try new technical and producing roles and explore cinematic storytelling through sound, light, producing, and art and set design.

Students from the School of Theater, School of Music, and School of Art can sign up to work on set as a make-up artist, costumer, production designer, or behind-the-scenes and still photography. There are also opportunities for Visual and Performing Arts students to work in post-production on film score composition, graphic design, and marketing/social media.
