Producing is an entrepreneurial endeavor. The film industry does not have a formalized recruitment program, thus students must expect to exert considerable ingenuity and persistence to secure their initial job. Some jobs do come through contacts made directly or indirectly through the Peter Stark Producing Program, such as summer internships, our mentor program, graduates, instructors and industry friends.

All second-year classes are held in the evening so students who are eager to start their careers can do so. Second-year Stark students are allowed to seek employment in the industry, produce a film or work on writing or developing a script, provided that all classes are attended and a 3.0 GPA is maintained.
