What is PFTT?

PFTTlogoProfessional Film and Television Training is a series of courses that have been offered at Chattanooga State Community College for several years. In it’s current form, there are 3 courses that should be taken in sequence:

PFTT 250 – Introduction to Film and Television Technology – Fall

This course to introduce students to the business and everyday working methods of professional film and television production with an emphasis on techniques used in field shooting for motion pictures, dramatic television shows, TV commercials and music videos. This course will be the first step in enabling students to acquire skills necessary for gainful employment in a professional film/video production setting. 

PFTT 260 – Advanced Film and TV Production – Spring

This course will continue to build student’s understanding of professional film and television with an emphasis on pre-production, budgeting, casting, script breakdowns, location scouting, and scheduling. The course will enable students to prepare for shooting a short, budgeted production.

PFTT 270 – Filmmaking – Summer

Introduction to basic production work-flow for low-budget, independent film productions. This will be achieved partially through lecture and readings, through critiquing the work of other filmmakers, and through hands-on production of a short, budgeted film.

These are credit courses that you must be registered to attend. For more information contact chris.willis@chattanoogastate.edu or visit our facebook page.
